1096 Main St., West Vancouver, BC V7T 1A1

Founded in BC more than 25 years ago, Milestones is a favourite for those looking for casual drinks and meals in a modern, upbeat atmosphere.

Olive & Anchor Restaurant

Located in the picturesque West Vancouver neighbourhood of Horseshoe Bay is the Olive and Anchor. This casual West Coast pub is the perfect spot to stop for lunch before boarding the ferry to Nanaimo or Bowen Island. They feature several sandwiches on the menu including a roasted turkey club, pesto chicken and a Goggie Barbecue Dog that comes loaded with shaved rib-eye in a soy ginger marinade and topped with sautéed onion, coleslaw, miso aioli and tomato salsa.

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.
