Vancouver for 3 months ... help!

Where should we go for brunch? Aphrodites on 4th and Dunbar. Delicious, organic breakfast.

What are some of the best food carts? I personally haven't been able to sample many food carts, but my boyfriend has. He likes the Nu food card and Les Brasserie. I think both of these only have 1 or 2 items to choose from though.

Best date night(s)? It's expensive, and some might not agree, but I like Blue Water Cafe. The food is tasty and I like the atmosphere for my date nights.

Best sushi? That's a good question. I would listen to the experts on here - they know their stuff.

What about dessert spots? I enjoy the desserts at Bistro Pastis on 4th Avenue. They are not a desserts only place, but they are always doing special treats. It's one of my go-to places.

Best Burger? I second Refuel. Also, in a totally different category of burger, I like Romers. But like I said, different types of burgers all together from Refuel.

Farmers Markets? Yep, the Trout Lake Farmers Market is amazing. Also, if you're looking for a tasty breakfast while you're there, try La Boheme Creperie. So tasty!

Cheese shops? Les Amis du Fromage (2nd Avenue), Benton Brothers (41st)

Tacos! Tacos! & More Tacos!

You could also try Lolitas on Davie. I was there a while ago and it was quite tasty.

Maybe it was the Groupon??

Hi. I just wanted to throw my two cents in here. I'm sorry to hear you had a not-so-great experience. I've been to C twice, both times using Groupons, and I just could not have had a better experience. The first time we had a six course dinner menu. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We were seated upstairs, but it was too warm for me. We let them know and they immediately moved us downstairs and gave us a free glass of (cold) champagne for the trouble. The food was amazing, perfectly cooked, and they cooked special dishes to accommodate my allergy to tree nuts.

The second visit was very recently; we had a four course lunch Groupon deal. Again it was just perfect. Although I have to confess, it was my birthday and they did know this, so I imagine they made extra effort.

But overall I would say that I've always been impressed with C, and I would not hesitate to buy
another Groupon.
