Vancouver weekend

There are just some places not to miss when visiting Vancouver. 
 
One place I tend to sample for a bit of French nostalgia is the Boulangerie on Mainland Street in Yaletown. Yummy pastries and coffee.  A quaint little shop with outdoor seating possibilities.  My favorite pastry is the Paine au Chocolate.
 
Keeping with the Yaletown district, there’s a neat little Wine shop on that same street called Taylorwood Wines.  They specialize in Canadian wines of all varieties. Stop in for a sampling during their daily wine tasting. Check out their web site for details: http://www.taylorwoodwines.com/.
 
Another little shop on that same street worth a mention is a new chocolate shop that held it’s grand opening last week: Chocoatl http://www.chocoatl.com/.  
 
Finally, after some raving reviews about a place called Vij’s, I had to check it out.  Nearly a 2 hour wait to get a table on a Saturday night during prime-time, but the food and the atmosphere was worth it. I’m not certain about the pricing…seemed pretty steep to me, but I had a great time and enjoyed the evening.  Here’s a link to that site, too.  http://www.vijs.ca/index_in.htm
 
Enjoy!
 
ps. If you have the time, I recommend a Harbor tour by Seaplane.  Some pictures from my tour are posted in my photos share.
