While our Kitsilano neighbourhood gets more expensive by the minute, there are still plenty of excellent lunch options around that won’t cost you more than your hourly wage.
From fresh and delicious sandwiches and salads to curries, burgers, and sushi, here’s our quick guide to a cheap lunch in Kits.
An easy, classic choice for a healthy and satisfying lunch, a decent sandwich should never cost more than $10, and it won’t at Tractor Foods ($9.50) on West 4th Avenue, Plaisir Sucre ($6.99) on Arbutus Street, and Terra Breads ($9.50) on West 4th Avenue.
Veggie-filled quesadillas, tacos, burritos, salads, and soups are all under $10 at 24hr The Naam on West 4th Avenue. Or how about a savoury falafel wrap for $6.50 at Al Basha on West Broadway or Cornwall Avenue. And Basil Pasta Bar has loads of vegetarian pasta options, all for $9.95.
