Cute brunch/cafe spot somewhere vaguely near the library

Amazing! I think that that's it! FABULOUS--thanks so much!

Cute brunch/cafe spot somewhere vaguely near the library

...oh god, my memory is terrible, but I was last in Vancouver in 2005 and went to a lovely little brunch(ish) spot.

Here is what I recall:

- old wooden tables, arranged haphazardly
- huge windows
- lots of fresh baked goods
- good music
- not so far from the library, but in the opposite direction from downtown

I remember lots of reclaimed tables/chairs...it may have been on a corner?

Any ideas? I'm back in Vancouver this weekend and wouldn't even begin to know where to look.

Italian restaurant near(ish) Avenue A/Houston

Oh, great, thanks--I think it was lil' Frankies. The name didn't ring a bell, but the pictures on the website did. Wonderful! Thanks so much!

Italian restaurant near(ish) Avenue A/Houston

In 2006, my boyfriend and I went to a fab Italian restaurant near Avenue A/Houston. This is one of those classic "If I heard the name, I'd remember it" posts.

The restaurant was just barely north of Houston...it may have been on 1st or 2nd Ave...my memory is fuzzy.

It served pizza, along with other things, and had a few rooms. It seemed to be a local-type place. I think that it may have been slightly below ground level (although not much).

I had an anchovy/garlic concoction; it was memorable.

Anyway: I've searched everywhere but given that I can't remember the name of the place, I'm not really getting anywhere!

Anyone have any ideas?
