Meet the owner

Five-year-old Lucia Salvador may have the distinction of being Vancouver's youngest restaurant owner.

“In 2010, I found out my wife was pregnant,” notes her father, restauranteur Erv Salvador. “And as a young guy at the time, a service/restaurant guy my whole life, I'd never really believed in RRSPs, or saving money, or mutual funds, or being a grown-up. But you go through this change, and you realize that you're going to be responsible for this human person for the next 20 years of its life. So I said: 'What do I know? I know restaurants. If I'm going to ensure my daughter's future, it's going to be with a restaurant'.”

Now, five years later, Lucia owns 100 per cent of Lucy's Eastside Diner, and despite her relative inexperience, has inspired father Erv to bring East Van its very own 24-hour eatery, a place that offers tasty cocktails and classic diner grub in a retro atmosphere.

“We're not trying to reinvent the wheel,” Erv says. “We're trying to do what diners have done for decades: simple food, done as best you can, and keep it affordable so people can come back three, four, five times a week. And we get that.”

    Vancouver’s best veggie burgers

    Vancouver’s best veggie burgers

    Homey, chill and oh-so-moreish, Lucy’s celebrates the best of the old school diner – from its 24 hour opening, to traditional 50s decor, to a delicious array of burgers. Amidst their artery-clogging menu options you’ll find Lucy’s handmade veggie burger, which combines black beans, and chickpeas into a goat-cheese crusted patty. The signature dish is still served with Lucy’s famous fries with fry sauce, ensuring each offering is truly comfort food at its best.

    24-hour restaurants in Vancouver with (really) good food

    After a long day, Lucy's is an ideal spot to chill out, whatever the hour. Don't let the vinyl seats and 50s diner vibe fool you – this ain’t no greasy spoon. The menu has something for every taste, from fried chicken and guacamole grilled cheeses to soups, salads and a killer goat cheese-encrusted veggie burger for the more virtuous among us. Plus did I mention they serve breakfast all day and night? Yes, please!

    Late-night restaurants for after-hours food in Vancouver

    Lucy’s is the 24-hour diner Main Street needs and deserves. After downing pints at any of the numerous neighbourhood bars or leaving the Biltmore Cabaret at 2:00 am on the weekend, visit without hesitation. The name says it all; order up traditional American/Canadian-style diner food and add a (boozy) milkshake to top off the whole experience.
