Canada Day 2

Thursday, October 25, 2012

We woke up to the most gorgeous view of the city & then went to breakfast at De Dutch (& had the most horrible service on earth, like waitresses-standing-around-talking-not-sitting-you-at-either-of-the-two-open-tables-kind-of-service). The food was OK, but I definitely wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Go to the Belgian waffle window on the same block. But don't worry, our day got lots better...

We walked down to Sunset Beach in the West End & hopped on a little tugboat over to Granville Island. Once at Granville Island we spent a few hours walking around, taking in the sunshine & drooling over everything at the Granville Island Public Market. Seriously, it puts Pike Place Market to shame. At this point we were really regretting our Dutch breakfast because the food here looked 10 times better!

When our friends met up with us, we ventured over to the Granville Island Brewing's tasting room & sipped on some delicious beers. It's a bummer that they only allow each person 12.5 oz a day - we would've totally ordered pitchers!

Heather rolled into town & we met up with her on Robson Street for some tapas at Coco Rico (just an 'eh' place) we ate here more out of starvation than anything else. We then relaxed in the hotel & ventured out for sushi at Sushi Mart later in the evening. A great sushi joint with great prices!
