Why Fraserhood is the Best Place to Eat and Drink

Fraser and Kingsway is the core of Vancouver’s trendiest neighbourhood, appropriately named Fraserhood. While this area has historically been home to a working class community, today, you’ll find a host of new restaurants, cafés and even ice cream spots, each more unique than the last.

Born in Vancouver, Earnest is made in small batches with simple real ingredients (sans preservatives), and put virtually all store-bought ice creams to shame. Their Blueberry Lemon flavour’s ingredients list is somewhat surprisingly simple – cream, blueberries, and lemons.
