If you’re looking for someone else to do all the cooking this Thanksgiving, look no further. We have the list of where to get that big bird dinner with all the trimmings right here in our Kitsilano neighbourhood.
There might be a few spots left for Fable’s annual Thanksgiving Dinner for Sunday, October 8th. It’s a three-course dinner served family style to share with your group at $50 per person. Menu items will include pork terrine, chard beets with burrata and pistachio, maple brined turkey breast, apple and sausage stuffing, maple cake, and quite a lot more. Of course, they will also offer vegetarian and gluten-free versions if asked in advance. Reservations required for this special occasion.

Hey, not everyone can afford to fork out all that green for a home-cooked meal served in foam-topped miniature proportions over at those deluxe places downtown. And super family-friendly White Spot offers its Traditional Turkey Dinner all year. Plus it comes with those delicious smashed potatoes (and kids can have fun Pirate Paks instead if they don’t fancy the bird).

Sophie’s Cosmic Cafe, Tractor Foods, and Aphrodite’s
For simple, but still kind of festive meals, Sophie’s, Tractor, and Aphrodite’s all have excellent options, available all year, too.
Sophie’s has the Hot Open-Faced Turkey Special with light and dark turkey meat smothered in gravy and served with traditional mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce.
Tractor has their freshly made Turkey Sandwich consisting of happy turkey thigh, smoked gouda, alfalfa sprouts, arugula, pesto aioli, and house pickled cucumbers all on soft sourdough bread.
And Aphrodite’s has the comforting Turkey Pot Pie made with local organic turkey and a blend of organic vegetables baked in their famous pie crust, served with organic greens.
Starting at complete turkey meals for four people, Whole Foods offers ready-made Thanksgiving meals via their online ordering system.
