"Come back to Vancouver as there are a few places here"
Come back to Vancouver - there are a few places here that should absolutely be on the shot. First off is Sophie's Cosmic Cafe. They've been a cornerstone of Kitsalano for 30 years. There's a line up out the door every Saturday and Sunday from 9-3, and it's just amazing. Homemade EVERYTHING - turkey meatloaf, nut burgers, housemade hot sauce you can take home AND handcrafted uber thick milkshakes. Check out sophiescosmiccafe.com I'm not sure this next one meets the criteria but it is one of the coolest places I've ever been - EXP lounge. Everything is video game themed, and they have POP ROCKS - in popcorn and as drink garnish. Amazing food, absolutely cool place. expbar.ca Then there's the Twisted Fork on Granville st - best french toast in the world and each coffee is served individually in a press. Also worth noting - Uncle Fatih's Pizza, Vera Burger, Woody's Pub, and The Ukrainian Village. Anything on Commercial Drive would fit the bill - best places in the city to eat.
