Top 5 Eat and Drink Spots in Cambie Village


French bistros fall into the category of cozy and charming, and this one is no exception. At only 30 seats and simple black and white decor, Chef Andrey Durbach helms the menu of hearty dishes from France, including crisp roast chicken, endive frisee and – of course – steak frites. Bon apetit, indeed.

Landmark Hotpot House

Reservation are highly recommended at this bustling Cambie Village staple. Bring together a group of hungry friends over a huge boiling Chinese hotpot, order meats, veggies, noodles and a Tsingtao and dip away. Meals are always better shared – right down to the broth, in this case.

BierCraft Bistro

Casual is the name of the game at this wateringhole, known for its 120 Belgian and craft beer selection. There are plenty of dishes to go with that list, from BC oysters and Belgian frites to Steelhead trout, pork tenderloin and open-faced lasagna. The fact that there’s two other locations on the Drive and up in the Wesbrook neighbourhood at UBC makes things that much cheerier.Sante!

Pronto Caffe

Opened by a Les Faux Bourgeois alumnist, for those craving traditional Italian with a contemporary take will live la dolce vita through the hand-made pasta, porchetta, antipasto and other tasty daily specials found here. The green, white and red restaurant facade leaves no room to wonder what country you’ll be supporting with your hungry belly, either.

Beans Central

A good neighbourhood coffee shop is the perfect place to escape to, not only for a java fix but with a favourite book in hand on a rainy afternoon. Even better is when that shop has comfy couches and a great selection of soups, sandwiches and paninis, as this one does (try to the feta and avocado with pesto).
