Creative and crave-worthy burgers in Kitsilano

Kitsilano might be known for its juice bars and yoga studios, but hearty and juicy burgers are available everywhere you turn in this beachfront neighbourhood. Have your way with inventive toppings and creative sides to satisfy your burger cravings at any time of the day or night. 

Sunshine Diner

2649 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V6K 2G2

This friendly local diner makes you feel at home as soon as you step inside. The large selection of standard burgers includes something for everyone. There are beef, chicken and specialty burgers, including the James Dean (topped with egg and sausage) and a Greek Zorba burger with tzatziki. You can’t go wrong with the old-fashioned Sunshine Burger: a 7-oz top sirloin patty grilled over charcoal.

Painted Ship The

2884 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V6K 2G7

The team at Yagger's pride themselves on serving some of the finest scratch-made burgers in Vancouver. The atmosphere is fun, friendly and bustling with young Kits residents stopping by for beers after work and to check out the latest sports action on the TVs. The Crunchified Organic Bison Burger practically jumps off the menu: a ground bison and pork patty is adorned with blue cheese, caramelized onions and hot sauce on a soft Portuguese bun.

LOCAL Public Eatery Kitsilano

2210 Cornwall Ave, Vancouver, BC V6K 1B5

Combine the laid-back, cozy vibe of a neighborhood pub with high-quality service and an exhaustive menu and you'll know why Local Public Eatery has become a go-to restaurant for so many Kitsilano residents. There’s a huge selection of burgers, including the Press burger with miso mayo and the signature Local burger with mouth-watering melted cheddar and jack cheeses. Wash it down with your choice of craft beer from a selection of brews that’s updated daily.

Moderne Burger

865 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1J9

For a top-quality straightforward burger, try this retro-style diner under the neon plan tree sign at West Broadway and Larch. This local institution serves all the diner classics: burgers, shakes, cherry soda, and French fries that are hand cut to order. Your handmade steak burger will come dressed with their house sauce and traditional toppings on a fresh-baked bun. Pile on the extras like grilled mushrooms or grilled onions. Alternatively, opt for their veggie patty, ground turkey or wild salmon fillet versions.

The Oakwood Canadian Bistro

2741 4th Avenue W, Vancouver, BC V6K 1P9

The Oakwood is a favourite among Kits residents for its casual atmosphere and inventive dishes, and the huge house-made burger is a bestseller. The Burger 2.0 is topped with aged cheddar, bacon, garlic dill pickles, alfalfa and Gulf Islands dressing. We suggest you amp up your patty with a side of smoked beef brisket poutine.

Tera V Burger

2961 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V6K 2G9

More than a restaurant, a movement, they say. Tera V not only makes a delicious array of tofu and tempeh veggie burgers, but the owners are also dedicated to running a sustainable restaurant that uses recyclable, compostable material and chemicals that are natural and biodegradable. The potato and yam fries served with your burger are baked, not fried, and you can taste the freshness of the (mostly) locally sourced ingredients.

Romers Burger Bar

1873 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1M4

Romer’s Burger Bar uses only organic, pasture-raised beef and you can taste the difference. They serve their delicious patty on a lightly grilled brioche bun, adding another buttery layer of goodness. But it’s their creative toppings that really make the difference. How about the gorgonzola garlic sauce on the Romer’s Righteous Rib burger? Or the macho challenge of the Man’s Man burger with amber ale cheddar and smoked alder salts? For patty fanatics who are looking for plenty of options, this is arguably the best burger joint in Kits – or close to it.

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.
