Best bennies in Vancouver! Another restaurant that started life as a food truck. Have it your way: on English muffin, lemon-truffled potatoes or skip the benny and go straight for chicken and waffles.

This location was Nick's Spaghetti House for 40 years: a real old-fashioned Italian-Canadian joint where they could have shot "Good Fellas." Nick retired and the team behind one of Vancouver's best Italian restaurants, Salvio Volpe, took over. There's still a nod to the Rat Pack and an etching of Nick above the bar. The food has gone slightly more upscale but is still comfort all the way. Don't have a reservation? Fuggetaboutit!

It's across the street! Terrific views of the inlet and mountains to the North. See the sunset or rise on the towers of downtown to the west. Watch dogs play fetch while kids play on the swings. Beautiful heritage building with a community room in the basement. Tennis courts are usually available if you fancy a game. Be sure to look up in the trees where you'll always see birds and sometimes an eagle family that hangs out.

A stunning view looking back at the city from the West, Jericho Park is worth the trek to get there. You can actually ride the #4 bus all the way. In the summer, it's home to Vancouver's iconic Folk Festival. Year round it has lovely walks and wildlife, including the not-so-wild bunnies that people ended up abandoning after Easter.
