Dock Lunch

International in Main Street

Like dining in a cool hippie's home, this charming room in a side-street house serves a daily changing menu of one or two soul-food mains (think spicy tacos or heaping weekend brunches). Arrive early and aim for one of the two window seats and you'll soon be chatting with the locals or browsing the cookbooks and novels on the shelves.

One of Vancouver's most unusual eateries, this is as far from a restaurant dining experience as you can get. No reservations.
