This traditionally italian and portuguese area on Vancouver’s east side now includes professionals and hipsters galore. The street is lined with coffee bars, restaurants of many ethnicities, and unique stores like Fratelli’s Italian Bakery and the organic butcher Pastures to Plate.
Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood has long waited for its day in the sun. Excellent restaurants and stores with original, locally made items are springing up everywhere. Pick up baked goods at Brioche, or fresh organic meat at Save-On-Meats.
