Originally a carnival-style marketplace that opened for Expo 86 Vancouver, Lonsdale Quay Market is anchored by community boutiques and shops.
Gusto di Quattro
The most ordered dish? Spaghetti Quattro. It’s been on the menu since the restaurant opened in 2000, and it’s been a favourite ever since.
Voted No. 1 Best Restaurant on a Rainy Day and No. 2 Best North Shore Restaurant in the 14th Annual Golden Plates Award, 2011.
Tucked at the bottom of Lonsdale Ave, Anatoli has been a North Shore staple since 1984. Try their moussaka. It’s delish.
The place to go for a full-blooded Caesar. It’s the restaurant’s addition of bacon-infused vodka that gives this drink its kick.
Café for Contemporary Art
Their website reads: “Wicked coffee, engaging art.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. (It’s also development manager David Jacobson’s fave spot for a cuppa joe.)
Satisfy your craving for spicy tuna sashimi and a tokkuri of sake in this unassuming sushi restaurant one block from The Versatile Building.
For over 30 years, Pasparos has been serving North Vancouverites some of the finest Greek Cuisine, often accompanied by a belly dancer or two.
Owner Kathi Cinnamon on Lower Lonsdale: “We love the eclectic mix of people who live and work here – some new to the neighbourhood and many who have been here for years.”
Owner Neil Callaghan on the North Shore community: “A lot of people who grew up here – and went to school here – stick around, so you always bump into people you know. Being social is so easy.”
An epic battle with an expert-level hill requires some serious equipment as well as skill. Find all the trucks, wheels and accessories you need to conquer it at Rayne Longboards.
Owner James Wilson on North Shore trails: “I’m obsessed with the Mount Fromme trails (at the top of Mountain Hwy). I have a real Jones for the sequence I call Loam to Home. And I think Ladies Only is in the prime of its life – it’s my current favourite.”
Le Bistro Chez Michel
The sister restaurant to Restaurant Chez Michel, Le Bistro Chez Michel is all about providing an approachable atmosphere for French fine dining. Check out their daily lunch specials.
John Braithwaite Community Centre
John Braithwaite Community Centre offers a number of low-cost recreation programs and drop-in rates, from $1 to $3, along with a variety of arts, dance and fitness programs.
Presentation House Theatre & Gallery
The Presentation House Theatre is housed in the Presentation House Arts Centre, originally built in 1902 as a school. Between 1913 and 1975, the building stood as North Vancouver’s “temporary” City Hall.
It’s all about breakfast at Moodyville’s. And we think the classic eggs, bacon and potato fry-up is where it’s at.
Inspire mind, body and soul with a meditative downward dog at family-owned and operated yoga studio, Yogapod.
Laugh-out-loud funny, on-the-edge-of-your-seat thrilling or entirely inspiring? Whatever your cinematic preference, you’ll find it at long-standing Empire Theatres.
Conveniently located a few streets down from The Versatile Building at Esplanade West.
Shoppers Drug Mart
All of your prescription needs, and then some, are covered at Shoppers Drug Mart. Open until midnight.
Thai House Restaurant
Thai House Restaurant Group has been winning awards for its Asian cuisine for almost two decades. Reason enough to check out Thai House Restaurant when your craving for Goong noon hae or a panang prawn curry hits.
Sometimes you just feel like a Starbucks. The Mocha Coconut Frappuccino® is certainly a seasonal summer favourite.
The Artisan Bake Shoppe
Freshly baked sourdough, homemade sandwiches, delectable house-made treats and Ancient Grains bread. Yum!
RDS Skate & Snow Supply
Whether you’re looking for a men’s hoodie or a lady’s beanie, RDS has you covered. The store sells a variety of clothes and accessories for men, women and toddlers.
Bella Doni Flowers & Home Décor
Pick up a “just because” bouquet or order an assortment of custom blooms at this European floral design boutique.
Kingston 11 Reggae Café
What will you find inside Kingston 11? Delicious jerk chicken, spices galore, the Kingston 11 scooter and maybe, if you’re lucky, Rohan Marley, son to Reggae icon Bob Marley. Rohan enjoyed a bite here in late 2009.
Rusty Gull Neighbourhood Pub
Enjoy a live show and refreshing pint at The Gull. The charming pub with its quaint façade has been loved by locals for over 26 years.
CityScape Community Art Space
Programmed and managed by the North Vancouver Community Arts Council, CityScape is a unique space for group-based, themed and interactive public exhibitions.
Bet you didn’t know this: Along with an extensive line of Skoah skin care products for you, Skoah has designed a shampoo and conditioning line for your four-legged friend, too.

Déjà Vu Spa
The Parisian-inspired Déjà Vu is housed in the historic Paine Hardware location, so you can admire your surroundings as much as your newly polished tootsies.
The KatWalk Salon & Day Spa
KatWalk carries a full range of beauty products, including Aveda, Schwarzkopf, Milkshake, Brocato Smoothing System and Great Lengths Hair Extensions, just to name a few.
