In a city as multicultural as Vancouver, citizens have it all when it comes to food. This variety is one of the biggest measures of the city’s growth and change over the years. Tucked away on 10th Avenue in Point Grey is a restaurant that adds to this diversity, but hearkens back to Vancouver’s days as a smaller, cozier place.

At The Diner you’ll find the standbys of British fare: fish and chips, corned beef hash and more, including “the full English breakfast” — that is, bacon and eggs, fried tomatoes, baked beans, fried bread and hash browns. “It’s a big favourite with the UBC students,” says Stella Shurety. She’s the forthright, plain-spoken proprietor, humble but proud of her restaurant’s old-country staples, which also include homemade steak-and-kidney pie. Tradition is the watchword here, from the baked beans to the Royal memorabilia.

The Diner is a hidden gem in Point Grey. It’s a quaint restaurant that’s decked out in British decor and run by an elderly English couple. If you like cozy booth seating, nice friendly servers and classic diner foods, this is the place to go. When you’re feeling extra hungry, opt for the traditional British breakfast, which comes with bacon, eggs, sausage, baked beans, fried tomatoes, hashbrowns and fried bread – that’ll surely tide you over ’til dinnertime.
