You won't find a muffin here!. Thomas Haas is a legend here in Vancouver. Don't get swayed by the line ups and the small shop footprint. He designed it this way and it's well worth the wait and everyone is just happy to be there. If you have kids, he has a secret panel wall beside the coffee lids where chocolate is placed in push out drawers. The coffee is amazing, he's won Vancouver awards for best coffee. The chocolates are just super douper (try the mint). The baked goods are fantastic, try a croissant. Afterwards walk to the harbour waterfront park and take in the Vancouver Skyline, you can see seals.

De Dutch is a quick 4 minutes walk, behind the Chevron gas station on the other side of the road. If you enjoy Dutch style pancakes, this is the place. There are a number of these in Vancouver. You can get just about any style of pancake here, as long as it's Dutch.

Busy restaurant but cool ambiance if you want to go with a group and be with a lot of people. Located at the Lonsdale Quay on the waterfront. During nice weather the out door patio looks onto the stage where summer live bands play.

If you’re craving something less ostentatious, head to North Vancouver, where Top Chef alumna Dawn Doucette has opened Douce Diner. Ms. Doucette decided on a daytime operation in order to spend more time with her family, although the hours will soon be extended into early evening now that the restaurant has received a liquor licence. The throwback art-deco design is as cute as polka-dot pinafore, appointed in glossy-black and pastel-pink tiles with flashes of chrome. In the kitchen, Ms. Doucette also places great emphasis on using farm-fresh ingredients and local suppliers. Douce Diner offers a petite selection of familiar comfort foods that makes it almost impossible to order badly. Eggs Benny comes with avocado, smoked salmon or very good fried country ham (sliced thin and rich with fat) on square buttermilk biscuits that are both dense and fluffy. The Hollandaise is thick and creamy, but brightly lifted with lemon. Old-school hash browns – a loosely shredded mound of white fluffy potatoes with oodles of crispy bits and sweet bursts of onion – are not the least bit photogenic. But when you stir in a runny yolk and drizzle a bit of house-made hot sauce on top, they taste oh-so-satisfying. You can’t go wrong by ordering a side of perfectly salted skinny fries, dumped in hot oil straight out of the freezer so that the exterior gets crisp while the insides pillow up soft and creamy. Or white beans cooked in ham hock and finished with vinegar. Buttermilk waffles are thin, offering a mouthful of golden crunch in every bite. They make a fine pedestal for super-crispy panko-fried chicken, darkly seasoned with hot sauce and a double dredging in flour to keep the meat moist and juicy. Country-style gravy, poured over top, is extremely thick and chunky with sausage, balancing the sweet lightness of the waffle with savoury heft. For a small menu, there is a surprising amount of repetition. Homemade granola with thick yogurt, lemon curd, fresh berries, toasted coconut and refreshing mint is a perfect spoonful of crunch, sweet, salty and tart. But you might not want to order it alongside French toast, which has a similar flavour profile, although the thick-cut challah bread is pretty awesome with its light, airy belly strapped in by a deep-brown lace of custardy batter. Simple and small or big and fancy, breakfast in Vancouver is definitely no longer boring.

Shopping

Lonsdale Quay (we pronounce it "key") is located on the water a 15 minute walk or 8 minute bus ride. Lots of shops and restaurants. It is at the base of Lonsdale so there are even more shops and restaurants and shops close by. This area is a hub for transportation. Seabus is located here as well as a transit bus loop. The new Polygon Gallery just opened and displays mostly media art (pictures, films, etc). The Friday Night Market is a good way to enjoy Food Trucks along with live entertainment on the main stage.

Mosquito Creek Trail is a Off Leash Dog area nestled on either side of Mosquito Creek. A 7 minute walk over and is a nice place to immerse yourself in North Vancouver's iconic tall trees. You can do the loop, one side is a bit more rustic and then the other side is well gravelled for walking in any shoe type. There are places to sit by the water. It is very well covered in a tree canvas so on hot days you'll enjoy the reprieve from the hot weather and it won't be so hot due to the cooling of the creek water. On rainy days you have some coverage to keep t you drier.

The park has many hiking trails of varying length and difficulty. The Baden-Powell Trail passes through the park crossing over the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge. Fun fact is due to its natural landscape the TV series Once Upon a Time (TV series) and the movie X-Men: The Last Stand have used this area for filming. Also if you want to save some of your vacation money, Lynn Canyon has a Suspension Bridge much like that of Capilano Suspension bridge, however it's free.
