5. The Federal Store

This “mom and pop, community-oriented corner store with a great coffee program, scratch baking, and all sorts of produce [has] character and they're just really good people to support, in my mind." says Drew Johnson, owner of Bows X Arrows. The Federal Store is a perfect place to catch up with a friend.

7. Le Marché St. George

"Le Marché St. George is a spot like nowhere else, which is what we like about it. It's a good place for a quiet coffee. In Vancouver, there are only a few permits like Le Marché St. George's, where you can just build a café in the middle of a residential neighborhood. I think there are only 4. There's no store, no sign, no nothing - it's just a small cafe next to a bunch of houses." Rotem and Itamar, co-owners of Chickpea, are all about this unusual neighborhood find.
