Sophie's Cosmic Café

Diner in Kitsilano & University of British Columbia

Slide between the oversized knife and fork flanking the entrance and you'll find one of Vancouver's favorite retro-look diners, its kitsch-lined walls studded with everything from Village People albums to Charlie's Angels lunch boxes. Burgers and big-ass milkshakes dominate the menu, but breakfast is the best reason snag a booth. Expect weekend queues as you await your appointment with a bulging Spanish omelette.
