Hi friends– Been meaning to post these pics of all the eating that went on during our travels in Vancouver and Seattle!! Such fun food that I just have to share it– hoping maybe you get up to Vancouver and Seattle soon and try it for yourself!
My favorite food stop in Vancouver wasn’t a restaurant– but the amazing Granville Market!! Spent a whole morning there wandering past bright produce, beautiful baked goods and intriguing groceries. So Fun!
Just around the corner, also on Granville Island, we turned in to Edible Canada with dear friends, Paul & Sue. Loved the stylish interior, interesting menu and the small “made in Canada” store at the back of the restaurant.
Searching for Vancouver eating spots on PInterest, the one that came up time and again was the Cafe Medina. Just brunch and lunch service, with Mediterranean inspired plates. But they are famous for their Belgian waffles with inventive toppings (mine was gingered orange marmalade).
Another Best Stop near Vancouver was The Cliffhouse at the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park– a new beautiful space with windows overlooking the cliffs and forest. Amazing seafood chowder and good old fish & chips!
And here are the heart pounding cliffs for which the Cliffhouse was named!
And then we “trained” down to Seattle, watching the sunset over the Pacific as we traveled. Lots of good eating there as well…
We developed the indulgent vacation habit of stopping for coffee and pastries once a day between meals–The London Plane shop was a combination bakery and flower shop. I’d love to be the proprietor there!
One of the Tom Douglas string of restaurants was the very cool Serious Pie.
And Seattle’s version of our In and Out–called Great State Burgers.
On Sunday afternoon we took the ferry out to Bainbridge Island and walked along the waterfront to The Harbor Public House.
Our last morning we trekked down to the Macrina Bakery for breakfast– Best pastry of the trip in a beautiful seat by the window.
Thanks Larry for being my dining buddy on this trip and all the meals for the last 43 years!
