What you'll do

We’ll eat, drink, and play some games along Commercial Drive — also known as "The Drive" — a culturally diverse neighbourhood minutes away from the city centre. The area is a hidden gem that has a wide range of pubs, restaurants, coffee bars, live music and is known to host a number of independent, family run businesses. We like to start by getting to know our guests over a delicious coffee (on us!) at one of the few remaining Italian coffee shops reflective of The Drive's Eurocentric roots. From here we customize the tour to match the desires of our guests making sure everybody is going to get the most of their time with us. To see what your in for check us out on IG @ www.instagram.com/vancouverfoodandculture or online at www.localfoodandculture.com

We have a combined four decades of living on and around Commercial Drive. We’ve learned to swim, attended high school, and worked our first jobs there. Being a part of the community for so long has given us the opportunity to try almost every coffee, beer, and meal. We would love to share our favourites with you and show you the best that The Drive has to offer.
