A lifelong Vancouverite, Jen Tam loves spending slow afternoons in the city, discovering new and old spots to be a "regular" at. As a writer and a student, she spends much of her time finding beautiful coffee shops to subsequently work in all day. You’ll often find her hanging out in Mount Pleasant or Kits and spending way too much money on sushi.
For some of us, every new season means a closet update or two (or three or four!). And while the shopping process is fun, it can sometimes be a strain on the pocketbook. Enter the consignment store: whether it’s due to financial restrictions or personal views, these beautifully curated second-hand shops make it easy for fashion lovers looking to update their wardrobe on a budget.
When you’re in the mood for comfort food, few things satisfy as much as a piping hot bowl of noodles. Whether you’re looking for homemade broth that’s been boiled for hours, rich toppings cooked to perfection, or just simple, carb goodness, here are a few Vancouver noodle houses serving up hearty meals that you’ll slurp ’till the bottom of the bowl.
In a coffee-loving city like Vancouver, there’s never a shortage of options when you need a caffeine fix. If you find yourself on the west side of town, hit up these local neighbourhood coffee shops for a quality cup of joe (and maybe a pastry or two!).

With that being said, here are some Vancouver spots for a wholesome bite when you want to refuel without negating all that hard work you just put in at the gym.
