Bonnie’s favourite spots around Vancouver
Open Door Yoga
Baby & Me Yoga is great for stretching out and getting stronger to keep up with an active baby!
1651 Commercial Dr #245, Vancouver
After my husband advised them that they didn’t have a change table or high chairs, they listened and put them in! And the Chunky Monkey and Chocolate Decadence Cake are divine.
4216 Main St, Vancouver
You’d never guess that this café has high chairs (and a stylish one with a tray no less). Despite many people having business meetings here, it has very baby-welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
75 E Pender St, Vancouver
The Pie Shoppe
Hands down THE best fresh fruit pies in Vancouver. A great pick-me-up on any day – rain or shine.
721 Gore Ave, Vancouver
Fantastic, unpretentious diner on the edge of Gastown that is great for breakfast (try their classic benny or fried chicken and pancakes). No baby-changing facilities, but they do have a high chair and a very relaxed, baby-friendly environment.
101 Main St, Vancouver
We got takeout dim sum from Floata in Chinatown and walked to Creekside Park where we had a picnic with the babe. We got to enjoy yummy dim sum and enjoy a sunny day outdoors.
1455 Quebec Street & Terminal Avenue, Vancouver
Circus Play Café
Part beautiful, fun play-space, part hip café that opened in early 2015 in East Van. Great place to go with the family, with friends or maybe even to make new friends.
Canada, 1650 E 12th Ave, Vancouver
