The salads were very tasty and the atmosphere is cool. The server seemed too busy but was always friendly and was trying to be responsive. Great lunch place.

Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and
has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs
and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the
city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday
nights are the most popular and lively, with young
revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping
the party going until late. Granville Street, being
mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy

Great for a little shot of city chic or maybe the contagious energy of an upbeat urban vibe. Mingle with a crazy medley of urban hipsters, tourists and power-suit types. Across the street from the Law Courts right in the bustling hub of downtown Vancouver. Next door is the Scotiabank Movie theatre and within a 10-minute walk are tons of worthy downtown destinations and hotels.
