Comfort food restaurants in Vancouver

When the weather turns gray and wet, sometimes you just want to eat a hearty meal that reminds you of home. Here are some Vancouver hideouts where you can satisfy your craving for home-cooked comfort food without having to pick up a pot or turn on the oven.

The Irish Heather

210 Carrall St, Vancouver, BC V6B 2J1

The Irish Heather is a Gastown pub with loads of Old World charm. They’ve perfected pub-style comfort food with their fish and chips and their flaky, bubbling pot-pies. And if you’ve been missing Mom’s homemade Sunday-night dinners, reserve a spot at their community long-table events for a filling meal of roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, potatoes and gravy.

Burgoo Bistro Lonsdale Ltd

3 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver, BC V7M 2E4

Burgoo has all the classics mastered. From gooey baked mac and cheese to rich beef bourguignon and thick homemade soups, they all hit the spot on a cold, rainy day. And with four charming locations to choose from in North Van, Point Grey, Kitsilano, and Mount Pleasant, this comfort-food haven is never too far out of reach.

Liquids + Solids

1550 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V6J 5K9

With 50 soups on their rotating menu, Liquids and Solids has the best soup selection in town. Grab a piping hot bowl to warm your insides and make it a meal with one of their imaginative grilled paninis. All three locations post their menu online daily, and sell their soup in bulk too in case you want to bring some home.

Mom's Grilled Cheese Truck

701 Robson St, Vancouver, BC

This food truck ups the ante on the classic after-school snack. Their menu changes often and their grilled cheeses are customizable, but past offerings have included bacon and caramelized apples with Gouda, and Sriracha-infused mayo with chicken and aged cheddar. Are your taste buds tingling yet? Check online for their current downtown parking spot.

The Naam Office

2724 4th Ave W, Vancouver, BC V6K 1R1

The Naam is the vegetarian’s answer to all things comfort food, but will surely keep omnivores happy too. A Kitsilano favourite for more than 30 years, it’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, meaning you can eat miso gravy poutine, avocado enchiladas, cheesy nachos or veggie burgers whenever the mood strikes you.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
