Vancouver Extended Stay Spring Neighbourhood Guide

With the city opening back up ahead of summer, you might be wondering what stores and businesses are currently open in our neighbourhood? Located in the heart of Downtown with easy access to Coal Harbour and the West End, there are countless destinations to visit and fill your time with during your extended stay. From grabbing a cup of coffee to stocking your pantry with fresh produce and essentials, our team has rounded up their top neighbourhood picks to help plan for your visit.

Grocery Store

With Urban Fare located a quick 4 minutes away and Whole Foods clocking in at an easy 9 minute walk, you’ll never have to worry about running out of the essentials. Shop local and fresh veggies, fruit, meat, florals, and more! Both locations include a bakery, as well as fresh bars to easily pick-up meals on the go. 


Whether you like your coffee first thing in the morning or as your go-to afternoon beverage, we’re lucky to be surrounded by some of the best cafes around. This includes international favourites like Starbucks, and also plenty of local destinations including Blenz Coffee (a Vancouver staple), 49th Parallel (don’t leave without one of their doughnuts), and Thierry (one word: chocolate). 


If you’re looking to dine out, you’re in luck! As more and more restaurants re-open, there are plenty of options when it comes to food. Here’s a quick breakdown of easy-to-walk-to restaurants: The Keg (steak), Joe Fortes (seafood), La Taqueria (tacos and margaritas), Cactus Club (for a little bit of everything!). 


While the Vancouver Seawall and Stanley Park are classic destinations that are easy to fill your time with, recently the Vancouver Art Gallery has also reopened! Check out their latest exhibits here.
