If the Vancouver locals were heading out to eat…

If the locals had your choices for 2 places for breakfast, 2 for lunch, and 2 for dinner in Vancouver…where would you choose? (any cuisine will do)

The places do not have to be cutting edge or trendy…just real good food. And places that have food unique to Vancouver are a big plus!

Thank you so much in advance!

              Breakfast:
              PROVENCE http://www.provencevancouver.com/mari...
              WHITE SPOT: always a good local place to go, been around forever so many around the city.
              Lunch:
              Caffe Artigiano: Great sandwiches and the coffees are to die for. Too bad the original owners sold the place so hopefully they kept the charm.
              Simply Thai (Yaletown): Great lunch specials
              Dinner:
              SANDBAR: downstairs is a small and quiet sushi bar but the chef is the best! If the place is a little too quiet for you, go upstairs and you can order sushi there and enjoy the great space and outdoor patio.
              GUU ( 3 locations): Japanese Izakaya
              CHOPSTICK CAFE( yaletown): Japanese Izakaya
              Banana Leaf:
