If you’re anything like me, you appreciate a Vancouver restaurant that allows you to get a few things done in one stop. Especially if you can get in and out quickly and easily, since you’re probably in the middle of doing several other things at the same time. Moms are made for multi-tasking.
Stock Up Cafe is one of my favourite places to multi-task. There aren’t many places in town where you can grab a quick (not to mention fresh and healthy) bite to eat, pick up a ready-made entree and sides for dinner and secure a unique birthday or hostess gift for your favourite foodie. And don’t forget your java fix with a coffee to-go on your way out the door.
My favourite time of day to visit Stock Up is between 7:00 and 8:00 am, for one of their delicious made-to-order breakfasts. Their fully-stocked case of salads, sandwiches, wraps and entrees always appeals to me too – it has provided a great picnic lunch for my family on a number of occasions. Their freshly baked muffins, scones and other baked goods are always tempting and tasty and make a great snack to pair with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Eat in or take out, I’ve never been disappointed.
But if you stop by for breakfast, lunch or a snack, why not pick up dinner while you’re at it? Stock Up isn’t just a great Vancouver restaurant, it also has a wide variety of fresh and ready-made family sized or individually portioned entrees and sides that would be a welcome addition to almost any supper table. In a life of multi-tasking, not every dinner can (or should be) made from scratch. And if you’re going to take a short cut every now and then, you might as well make it fresh, healthy and tasty.
With several cases filled with unique foodie treats and gift ideas, you’re bound to find a special treat for yourself. They have shelf upon shelf of sauces, spices, dressings, tea and cookies, even soaps, candles, cutting boards and novelty cocktail napkins. It is always worth a look to tempt yourself with something fun.
Kid-Approved Healthy Meals
As if all this potential for one-stop productivity wasn’t enough, you will, in all likelihood, also have a child or two in tow when you visit Stock Up Cafe. Even the pickiest of eaters will find something of interest to sample while sitting in one of the Vancouver restaurant’s clean and comfortable high chairs. And you can give yourself a pat on the back. Not only are you multi-tasking over lunch, but your child is enjoying a fresh and healthy meal. Everyone’s a winner.
