Starbucks2787 Laurel Street, Vancouver
Fie on their Wi-fi!
Submitted Wednesday, January 20, 2010 - 3:44pm [Dine in]

While overall this is a consistent outlet compared to any other Starbucks, with friendly service, I'm disappointed that, unlike every other standard Starbucks I've patronized, they don't have Bell Internet access. This means I can't log in for my 2 hours of free wi-fi using my Starbucks.com account. All that's available is the VGH wi-fi signal, which is of course private and protected.

Ambiance is a cut below the best outlets with a dearth of comfy chairs.

So overall, not the very best 'bucky's out there but certainly acceptable.

Thai House Restaurant116 W Esplanade, North Vancouver
Always a favourite
Submitted Monday, September 29, 2008 - 12:51pm [Dine in]

I've always enjoyed the offerings at Thai House and my experience here was no exception. The chicken and creamy curry sauce with veggies was flavourful and satisfying. The service was very good. And the surroundings, full of exotic decor, adds greatly to the dining experience.

I see that they have moved to a nearby location since the time I ate here but I am certain that the new version is well worth checking out.

Acacia Fillo Bar & Cafe1103 Denman Street, Vancouver
A West End gem
Submitted Wednesday, December 5, 2007 - 12:00am [Dine in]

Being a work-at-home guy, I'm fortunate enough to be able to regularly sample Denman Street's variety of lunchtime offerings. Acacia has been a favourite of mine for a long time now.

Their lunchtime specials never disappoint. The main attraction consists of a flaky, burrito-sized fillo pastry containing a tasty filling - steak and mushrooms, halibut and shrimp, salmon, turkey slices, or others. It's a generous portion, and it's accompanied by the tastiest crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside mix of diced sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. Soup or salad is also included, and I usually go for the soup - always homemade and usually quite delicious (my favourite is the hearty tomato).

They also have a variety of desserts which I have yet to scratch the surface of, but have always been happy with anything I've tried - the vanilla cake I had today was superb, sweet yet light.

The lunch special with a drink is just around $10 - a super deal.

Acacia will continue to be one of my regular lunchtime spots!
