For the best Baja-inspired tacos on the West Coast – maybe even in Canada – you cannot miss Tacofino. Originating in Tofino on Vancouver Island, the restaurant now has four outlets and two food trucks across the city. Crispy, fresh and loaded, the fish, tuna and chicken tacos are all musts. Go hungry, leave happy.

The Acorn Restaurant

The Acorn isn’t your typical vegetarian restaurant: forget about tempeh and sweet potato fries, here vegetables take center stage leaving even the staunchest meat eater satisfied. Chefs make the most of freshly picked, seasonal, local produce. There’s a strict no-reservation policy – brunch can be especially busy but exceptionally good.

Medina Cafe

Specialising in sweet, crunchy Liege-style waffles, Medina Cafe offers one of Vancouver’s best brunches. Its extensive cocktail menu caters to those celebrating and others in need of a hair of the dog. With a no reservations policy, it’s best to head there early and in a small group – there’s nothing more tortuous than being turned away having caught the savor of caramelised sugar.
