It's a busy cafe and bakery with lots of traffic. If you are lucky enough to grab one of the few seats outside, you can settle in and people watch all afternoon.

Parks & Nature
An amazing running path to Southlands will take you through a hidden area of Vancouver. Stables and nurseries can be found throughout. Don't be surprised to see folks riding their horses through the streets. It's a sight to see. Be sure to make it as far as the end of Deering Island. At the end is an amazing and tranquil water view.

This neighborhood bar and grill is located on an island within walking distance. The views are amazing the crowd is friendly. It's definitely a hidden gem. They even offer pick up an drop off service if you don't want to walk/drive. I think it's only on the weekend though. Go and enjoy Happy Hour with them on any one of their patios. Your choice: overlooking the marina or watching the planes land. 604.269.2348 Hours: Mon-Thu: 11am-11:30pm Fri: 11am-12:30am Sat: 9am-12:30am Sun: 9am-11pm

Getting Around
This is the #10 north bound Granville Street bus that will take you all the way downtown. It cost $2.75 each way. Each fare gives you 90 minutes to transfer so don't throw away your ticket. This bus stop is literally across the street from the house. I suggest you walk to 59th Avenue to cross the street. There is a crosswalk there.
