Neighbourhood markets and cafes
Just around the corner, this charming Italian market and deli has been family run for over 100 years. Great for quick sandwiches, groceries, pastas, sauces and my favourite sourdough loaves. Open until 6:30pm M-F, closed Sundays.

Another popular neighbourhood spot for coffee, baked goods, groceries and Portuguese delicacies is open later than the others (7pm M-F, 5/6pm on weekends). My family's favourites are the orange fritters, sausage rolls and cod cakes!

Things I like to do
It's an easy walk past Science world toward Olympic Village where you can catch one of the little ferries that zig zag around False Creek. A great way to get to Granville Island or beaches if you don't want to bike.

Ride bikes around Stanley park (counter clockwise only) and if the weather is nice stop at Third Beach for a late afternoon swim. Used to be the best concession in the park - perhaps still is? grilled onions on your veggie/hotdogs?

If you don't want ride all the way to Kits before a rest, stop here for a pint on the patio with the most fabulous view of False Creek and the city and mountains. Also a great destination for a decent brunch.

If you have transportation this should not be missed. It's not quite as high as the Capilano Suspension Bridge, but it's longer and FREE! You can also hike around the forest trails. Particularly great when the weather is not perfect.

You can't stay this close to Chinatown and not go out for dim sum. There are lots to choose from, but this place is our favourite. Don't miss the deep fried squid and the green beans.
