You Have to Eat Here: Explore Vancouver’s Best Affordable Eateries

Vancouver is one of the most exciting cities in the world. If you are thinking of flying out to Canada, which is undoubtedly one of the best places in the world, you should definitely consider a trip to the city, which is home to some of the country’s best cultural offerings, natural landscapes and hip nightlife.

If attractions like Stanley Park, Science World, and Vancouver Island aren’t enough to persuade you that the city is the place to be, perhaps taking a peek at the city’s best affordable dining options, will convince you to visit to set things in motion. So, without further ado:


Hamburger 2.85

Vancouver is well-known as having some of the best food trucks in Canada and Hamburger 2.85, which is situated on the corner of Granville Street and West Pender Street, is one of the best. Unlike many of the city’s food trucks, hamburger 2.85 is very affordable, with its signature burger costing just 2.85, of course!

Hamburger 2.85 is loved by locals and tourists alike for its satisfying food, which includes its ever-popular teriyaki-sauced burgers and crispy hot fries.


Plan B

If you’re a vegetarian, you’ll want to visit Plan B, which is home to meat-free options so good that even die-hard carnivores can be spotted there most days.

Don’t be put off by its rather grungy exterior, because this simple hole-in-the-wall eatery is responsible for some of the best eats in the city, including its infamous nacho platter, which once eaten (if you can even manage it) will not be forgotten.



If all you want is a quiet little café where you can take a break from sightseeing and get a cup of coffee Finch’s, which is a lovely little shabby chic café is the perfect place to rest your feet. It’s also located just across from a popular bookstore, so you can pop offer and choose a book to read while you relax.

While you’re at Finch’s, you’ll want to order one of their impressive freshly made baguettes, which are absolutely to die for.


Lucy Eastside Diner

This homely diner is the place to go if you want to mingle with locals over a traditional Canadian breakfast. Whether you’re looking for that breakfast staple of bacon and eggs, or you’re looking for something a bit more upmarket, like smoked salmon scrambles, you will be well-catered for at Lucy. It is also a great place to meet locals, and since it’s open 24/7, you can always pop in and try some traditional grub.

If you’re a fan of Man V. Food and you want to try out a gut-busting challenge for yourself, just hand over $30 and ask for the $30 Challenge. Doing so will get you a huge meal, which includes several burger patties, plenty of Canadian bacon, and a thick milkshake, amongst other delights. It’s a challenge few people have beaten, but maybe you’ll get lucky!

Although the focus has been on low-cost eateries in this post, you will also find plenty of high-end restaurants in Vancouver, if you are looking for something more high-brow. The city is so great because it caters to everyone and you can always find something to tickle your taste buds while in Vancouver.
