Known for more than 50 years as one of the best that Germany has to offer, Ploeger Delikatessen comes to Kitsilano.
A family operated business handed down from generation to generation this specialty food shop offers unique snacks as well as delicious take-out dishes for home, office or the beach…
There’s also a high quality selection of grocery items combined with fresh produce. The emphasis is to keep it local and organic. And there is a flair for the German experience you won’t get elsewhere.
Owners Frank and his wife Corinna visited Vancouver for the first time several years back and they fell in love with this city. They quickly realized their dream and knew they wanted to move their business of fine food here.
After two long years of planning and waiting for their immigration permit, Frank, Corinna and their two sons finally moved to Beautiful BC.
Kitsilano was chosen as their favorite area in early 2007 during their first trip to Vancouver. After a long search the space of the current location became available and after a huge renovation Ploeger was set up in this much desired area of Kitsilano.
Located at 1900 West 1st Avenue (corner of Cypress and 1st avenue)
Hours of operation are Tuesday to Saturday from 9:30am to 6:30pm and Sundays from 9:00am -5:00pm
They anticipate closing later around 7pm during the summer months and offering a breakfast menu on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Stay tuned…
If you’re in the neighborhood I would suggest a visit to Ploeger. They offer organic coffee from Moja Coffee a small importer from North Vancouver and it pairs nicely with one of the in house made pastries, some of which are brought in fresh from a local German baker.
If you’re in search for a savory lunch item they’ve got this covered too. There are about 12 indoor seats and once summer arrives there will also be seating outside.
Lunch options include a selection of in house made sandwiches, quiches, salads, schnitzel, meatballs, daily soup and ratatouille. More options will be available in the near future. It’s also refreshing to learn they make their own mayonnaise and offer homemade jams.
