A challenge indeed, eating well but still catering to a five-year-old. We'll be in town for 2.5 days before the young lady joins us with her parental units, then there'll be four and a half of us for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, plus Monday morning. It'll be early June (yay, Rose Festival!). We'll have wheels. Dinners will be earlier than usual (6ish) for the weekend nights. Here's what I have so far:
Upright or Xico for Happy Hour Wed
Ox, Tanuki or Lincoln for dinner Wed
Coffee at Coava, Sweedeedee for corn cakes Thu
Burgatroyd for the Garden State burger, then Evoe lunch Thu
??? happy hour Thu
Uptown Billiards, Tannery Bar or DOC for dinner Thu
Coffee at ?? and snacks at Courier for breakfast Friday
Viking Soul Food for lunch on Friday
Matchbox for Happy Hour on Friday
Slappy Cakes, Dove Vivi or Sok Sab Bai for early dinner on Friday (with child)
Spints or Interurban for brunch on Sat (would these be child possible?)
Las Primas or Picnic for lunch Sat (with child)
Oro di Napoli for pizza frita for Sat aft snack (with child)
Slappy Cakes, Dove Vivi or Sok Sab Bai for early dinner on Saturday (with child)
Autentica for brunch on Sunday (with child)
Meat Cheese Bread or Morso for lunch Sunday (with child)
Slappy Cakes, Dove Vivi or Sok Sab Bai for early dinner on Sunday (with child)
Podnah's Pit for brunch on Monday (with child)
Back to Vancouver in convoy with snacks for the road in tow.
Thanks for any input you may have, particularly on whether the places I've noted with child are in fact suitable, and of course whether there are better places.
Excited to show off your beautiful city and its great food to my young friend!
