July 2021

Lynn & Michael are sad to say we’ve sold our house and unfortunately will no longer be inviting guests to share the home with us.

Breakfast Nearby

Breakfast is not available in-house, and that’s partly because we’re near “the Drive”, which has so may great places to eat that we can’t compete!  To come to Vancouver and not wander our neighborhoods and check out our fantastic food culture would be to miss a good part of what Vancouver is all about! We hope you will love the neighborhood as much as we do!

Read on D

Get intrigued by the tempting aromas wafting from restaurants on the Drive – dark roasted coffee, sweet pastries, Cuban chorizo skillet at Havana’s Cuban Restaurant, buttery croissants at Moja Coffee Shop, fresh bagels at Rosemary & Rock Salt, andouille hash at Fets Whisky Kitchen, buckwheat granola & raw smoothies at Eternal Abundance Vegan Restaurant, a nerdy weekend brunch at the Storm Crow Brewing Company, “modern Mexican” spices at La Mezcaleria, a delicious weekend avocado benny  at Cabrito Spanish restaurant, or a yummy & budget friendly veggie breakfast burrito at Bandidas Taqueria.

Commercial Drive

If the suggestions above don’t tickle your tastebuds, there are several great diners slightly further, but still within walking distance, where you’ll find tastes of the Middle East at Alef, pulled pork pancakes with Bourbon Syrup at the Red Wagon, or one that we haven’t yet tried but it’s getting good reviews – a “Southern Comfort” brunch at Jackalope’s Neighborhood Dive. This list is by no means a complete list of the restaurants nearby, but just a glimpse of possible options. Come, see for yourself, and let us know your favorite restaurant “find”!
