Please help with where to eat with a baby and a vegetarian for upcoming trip to Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo and Tofino

I am looking for some help please...

We are travelling to BC in mid-Sept with a baby (2 months old) and a vegetarian. I have looked at a lot of older posts and have some ideas on what restaurants we want to try, but was hoping local Chowhounders could advise on the baby/vegetarian friendliness of the places on my list.

The baby sleeps most of the time, but does occasionally wake and yell for a feed (she loves to eat as much as her parents!). So I would prefer to avoid restaurants where that is going to get us dirty looks... partly for my sake, but also because I dont want to ruin someone else's special night out!

This is our itinerary and the places we would like to try. Please help cull it to some appropriate choices!! We will have a car and eat all cuisines (as long as they have a veggie option).

Thu/Fri: Vancouver (staying downtown) - 2 x lunch and 2 x dinner from the following list.... omakase at Sushi Kimura, Japadog, Dhaka Fish and Biriyani, Dharma Kitchen, Anatolia's, Ajisai, Go Fish, Nuba (Hastings). Are any of these near Stanley Park?
Sat: Whistler day trip - planning picnic lunch (bread from Sunflower Bakery in Squamish?). Dinner at Sushi Sen (if its baby friendly)?
Sun: Early morning ferry to Victoria - lunch at Zambri or Blue Fox Cafe or Pizzeria Primastrada? Afternoon/evening drive to Nanaimo - dinner on route (not sure where) or in Nanaimo? Not sure where...
Mon: Leisurely drive to Tofino, stopping at MacMillan Park on route. Should we pack a lunch or are there yummy places to eat between Nanaimo and Tofino?
Tofino Dinner - Tacofino?
Tues: Tofino - Spotted Bear for breakfast, Sobo for lunch, Wildside Grill for dinner
Wed: Drive back to Nanaimo. Lunch at Aladdin's Cafe. Ferry back to Vancouver.
Dinner in Vancouver (see list for Thu/Fri)
Thu: Lunch in Vancouver (see Thu/Fri list), flight home in afternoon.

Thanks in advance!
