First visited here a few years ago on my last visit to Van, and came back yesterday, and again today. 2 lunches in a row, Meat & Bread cannot disappoint! Such amazing sandwiches, perfect mix of fresh, lightly chewy bread, plenty of delicious meat, and the crunch of the crackling in the porchetta is to die for, and with that... More

Fast food, good atmosphere, small menu. Food a tad spicey for my taste, seating very close together indeed at communal tables. Food preparation in clear sight - I would have liked to see gloves rather than bare hands preparing my food. For a casual, quick lunch worth a try. Meat ball sandwich very generous with the meat balls!

Got various sandwiches (pork, chicken, beef (too salty))/~9,50+tax, with squash carrot soup. Food was very good but if you want to eat it hot, you can choose between very noisy and crowded inside or outside at the benches.

Back here for the second time and another great meal. Had the Porchetta and it was great. If you're looking for fine dining this place will probably disappoint, but if you're looking for a small soup and sandwich menu served in an eclectic setting then you won't be disappointed. What they do, they do very well. Priced fair for what... More

Truly the best sandwich I've ever eaten. Actually,writing this now is making me want to return to Vancouver just for a sandwich!! The staff were super helpful & explained the entire ordering / sandwich system when you first arrive. We time it just right & landed a table at 1145, by 1215 the place was packed with a massive line... More

Easy, fast and delicious. Simple menu means no long drawn out decisions. Small table inside and some tables out. Just get it to go, find a view and enjoy.

There is one thing to get when you come here and that is their pork sandwich. They usually offer about three different sandwiches one of them being their pork which is always available. Besides that, they offer a different daily soup and salad. The menu is small but the food is good. My last visit was a bit disappointing. I... More

The sandwiches at Meat and Bread are amazing. The foccia bread is fresh and the meats are expertly prepared and seasoned offering as good as sandwich as you can expect anywhere. The environment is lively, very informal (self seating), and the service is quick. There are two downsides: (1) the place is popular, so getting a seat in the middle... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
