Lunch With Kids (Relatively) Close to Coal Harbor
I'll be in Vancouver for a day, with my two kids (ages 7 and 4) staying at the Coast Coal Harbor. I'm hoping to find a nice lunch spot that we can get to easily (I won't have car). Ideally somewhere with good food where kids are welcome (they're well behaved and eat most things - I'm not looking for a place that specifically caters to children, or has special stuff for them). Any suggestions would be appreciated!
how fancy do you want?
i do agree with the vintage Hotel Vancouver --- we share that boilerplate
my other boilerplate -- now this is for very casual (ie a few tables inside or sit outside and watch the seaplanes and the coal harbor view) --- Anatolia Express.
my young person is a big fan of their hummos, fresh-made peda bread, the various "entree" (incl meat and veg wraps), the exotic juice drinks (a big treat) --- and the outdoor covered space.
It's on the NORTH side of the NEW convention center- the one with grass on the roof. Good washrooms next door, too. that's important ; )
then you just continue your urban hike to the WEST past the big orca sculpture in the olympic torch park, then the seaplane terminal, eventually the Westin Bayshore (Starbucks for a refresher) ... lots of marinas with big yachts to admire, then you're in Stanley Park.
LOL, my boiler-plate reply to the same question ...... Griffin's in Hotel Fairmont (Georgia & Burrard):
There's a Thomas the Train ride-on in the large hotel lobby area, not to mention lots of "escape" places in case the kids act up. But that's based on past experience, as our child is now going on 7, we no longer keep an active roster of kid-friendly restos.
At the other end of the spectrum, Hon's Wun-Tun House on Robson is easy for kids to eat, if a bit on the noisier side:
