Lower Lonsdale, dubbed "LoLo" by locals, is a growing quay with numerous shops, cafes, and restaurants. With the rise of many new condo towers, young families are flocking to the North Shore for its relatively affordable prices and seek the same kind of entertainment and dining experiences as the downtown core. Visitors and new homeowners alike won't be disappointed by the new eateries popping up in "LoLo" and across the North Shore.
If you're heading to North Vancouver, this is your must-eat list.
For a casual night out, head to trusty and consistent Burgoo for a hearty and comforting meal. This Vancouver classic is the perfect spot for a rainy day. Find dishes like decadent french onion soup, loaded mac and cheese, shepherd's pie and many more homecooked favourites.
For fine-dining within the quay, make your way to Gusto Di Quattro, an upscale Italian restaurant without the high-class pretension. This neighbourhood staple has been operating since the 2000s, serving a rustic menu with traditional Italian pasta and entrees.
Vancouverites love brunch, so much so that they will line up for hours to get into their favourite brunch spot. BLVD proves it's worth the wait, this popular North Shore breakfast joint offers a cozy atmosphere and reinvented hearty classics. Try the Macadamia Nut Pancakes, with bananas and macadamia nuts stashed inside a three-stack pancake served with coconut cream syrup. Try also their claim to fame egg benedict. Their benny's are top-tier and come with their signature bread pudding, house-made hollandaise and a side of fries. Run, don't walk to this establishment or you'll be waiting forever!
For a quick bite head to the recently-opened Farina Pizza, a popular Main Street institution's newest outpost. Find Northern-Italian style pizzas and a selection of antipasti, insalate, pasta, and desserts. As well, diners can enjoy local craft beer and prosecco on tap, or browse through their all-Italian wine list.
All of these restaurants and eateries are only a quick drive away from the Capilano River Park RV and Campsite, the perfect place to embrace the beauty of the great outdoors and enjoy delicious meals in the city.
