I had wanted to go to La Grotta for a long time, but every time I was in the area it seemed that I had other plans. I finally made it happen and stopped in for a sandwich. I ordered and they put it in...More

The panini sandwich we got while on our Taste of Vancouver Walking tour was so delicious. I'm mad at our tour guide for telling us to pace ourself as you won't have room for all the goodies we're going to eat on the tour so...More

They have not a bad variety of cheese and deli meat. Not the most extensive or great variety but if you are after non standard "run of the mill" cheeses (ie. supermarket cheese) then this is worth visiting. It doesn't compare to the variety and...More

This is the best place in the neighbourhood to pick up a sandwich. With several meats and cheeses to choose from, and an array of veggies and condiments, the possibilities are endless. The sandwiches are generous and reasonably priced. There is some outdoor seating, but...More

The counter display of all the meats and cheese was impressive, as was the baroque decor and bustling atmosphere. Tried the pannini Italian with hot peppers-very fresh and good. The owners are brothers (at least the ones I encountered were) and they were casually efficient...More

I asked if there was any place to sit. The man behind the counter pointed to a few sad and small tables and chairs squished against the store front window outside. It was raining heavily and so that was not an option. " No, really;...More

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between

students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
