Don’t forget to snap a pick of the cafe while you’re there, as the space itself is also #cafegoals.

A new addition to the River Market, Amaranthus is a plant-forward restaurant with an elevated twist.

Dishes like their chimichurri avocado toast served on rosemary focaccia bread with pickled nectarines, red onions, alfalfa sprouts and goat’s or Blue Heron cheese is almost too beautiful to eat, but that’s not stopping us from devouring/feasting on this delicious snack.

Hyack Sushi

Hidden away above V Cafe on the corner of 8th and Carnarvon, Hyack Sushi is undoubtedly one of the chicest sushi spots in Downtown New West.

Who doesn't love bubble tea? With flavours such as their red velvet slush or their Mango-Passionfruit Galaxy Milk, Bobacabana is killing it with their unique and delicious creations (their dessert waffles definitely do not fail to impress either).
