The Shoestring Cafe is the neighborhood restaurant everyone wishes they had around the corner from their home. This family-owned restaurant is the perfect balance between casual and fine dining. It's a hidden gem in the middle of nowhere - in the Crestwood Industrial area of northeast Richmond. Once you've tried it though, you'll quickly realize this is one of the best places to have lunch or early dinner within a 10 km radius. The other eateries in the neighborhood (sandwich shops and noodles houses) aren't even in the same league.

Shoestring serves upscale comfort food in a welcoming atmosphere with attentive and prompt service. It's perfect for an upscale lunch. You have to try their hearty seafood corn chowder, pasta dishes, and their grilled steak (with shoestring potatoes, of course). All their dishes are well-prepared, delicious, and attractive. The prices are affordable (main courses range from $10-15) and the portions are just right - small enough to finish, but large enough to make you satisfied.

Shoestring is a real windfall for anyone near this area of Richmond. Speaking with the chef-owner, he reveals he developed his craft through decades of work in B.C., California, and overseas. Honestly, this place feels like it's a Yaletown restaurant scaled down to fit the suburban business hub in East Richmond.
