Best Cafe's in Kitsilano!
These are a list of my favourite cafe's within walking distance of the house (or a short drive.)
It has an amazing indoor/outdoor patio which is great for this rainy season! Great coffee, AMAZING pastries, and it's close to the house and right in the center of all the 4th ave shopping! BEST to go very early in the morning when their pastries are fresh out of the oven... Trust me on this one and get the chocolate croissant. They also have home-made almond and hazelnut milk. Drool.

a live-plant lined wall when you walk in makes this place, as well as it has THE BEST avocado toast in my opinion, as well as a bunch of other vegetarian breakfasts, smoothies, and home-made milks. They also have the best vegan cinnamon buns I've ever had. They also have chairs in the window that hang from the ceiling. Good photo opp ;)

The #1 spot for drinks in Kits. It's right on the beach, but get there early on sunny days so you aren't waiting. I really enjoy this place for brunch as well.. make sure you sit on the patio!

By far the best ocean-view restaurant in Vancouver, BETTER than Cactus Club in English Bay but that is still one of my faves too. The food is mainly fancy seafood but honestly I go there for the drinks and the BREAD, at sunset. This is magical. Do yourself a favour and don't skip this one! You can walk along kits beach while you wait for a table but I've never had to wait.. it's kind of a hidden gem even though it's huge.

This is a great vegetarian restaurant, basically across the street from the house (on 4th Ave) that is open 24/7. I love it for brunch but or late night meals after the party's over. :)

This is one of my favourite walks... to walk down 3rd ave gazing over all the beautiful homes, then turning left on Alma street to 4th Ave and Voila! you are on an adorable little shopping street with Banyen Books and Aprhodite's cafe AND pie shop. Make sure you walk down 3rd (or 2nd or 1st) and NOT 4th, so that the walk is that much more enjoyable. This restaurant is great for brunch and they also have a pie shop across the street from their restaurant that is super cute as well, then check out the magical Banyen Book Store there as well. :)

Beautiful Places/Beaches/Sights in Kits!
My favourite part about Kits is that there are a million walks and beaches and parks to walk to from the house. As soon as you exit the house and cross the street, you are in a park that leads directly to the beach. (tatlow and volunteer park). I like to explore around here either going down to Jericho Beach or Up to Kits beach! The possibilities are endless and where ever you choose, it will be beautiful. I go down to Volunteer Park/Beach to watch the fireworks in the summer!
It's right across the street from the house and leads to the beach! :)

So close to the house and a must-do. My favourite time is early in the morning or sunset. The water is magical at these times. A set of stairs takes you down to a private beach, where you can also have bonfires (if you don't get caught)

One of my all-time favourite places in Vancouver. Feels like you're in the mountains, but there is a beach, a BEAUTIFUL pitch-n-putt golf course, tennis courts, a lake, hiking, beautiful trail walks, biking, the seawall, waterpark, etc. etc. etc. You will not run out of things to do here, trust me! The teahouse in Stanley Park is a WONDERFUL place to eat or drink. trust. me.
