Only a 15 minute walk from The Alcove is KOKO, one of Vancouver's most famous Japanese restaurant & sushi bar. KOKO offers traditional cuisine in a relaxed space with tatami rooms. The Koko Maki is my favourite roll in town. The Jumbo Dynamite is a close second. Those two rolls together are the backbone of every excellent meal. Koko's is the best sushi in Vancouver. And I've been to most.

One of my all time favourite places in Vancouver to watch the world go by! This old school translation inspired coffee bar is a greet place to bring the whole family. The coffee and tea selection is of the highest caliber. Platform 7 offers coffee from Stumptown Coffee Roasters from Portland. Stumptown Coffee Roasters sources the best coffees in the world and strives to maintain transparent, quality-based relationships with farmers along the way. From plant to portafilter, Stumptown pays homage to these farmers through the fervent attention to detail at every step, the quality control in the cupping labs and meticulous roasting profiles.
