Vancouver Cheap Eats: Davie Street

Dec 19 2017, 11:30 am

Pride Week is well underway, which means Vancouver is coloured with plenty of events, dancing, and celebrating over the next few days.

For those of you taking part, you’ll need to sustain yourself with good grub that won’t break the bank. So when those hunger pangs act up, follow the rainbow road and fuel up with these Davie Street restaurants Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow found for $5 or less.

The Red Umbrella Café

For those of you that like to start the party early in the morning (or party ‘till the very wee hours), The Red Umbrella Café on the corner of Davie and Bidwell should be your breakfast stop. For $4.99 you can enjoy two eggs, hash browns, and 2 sausages. You could also order two large buttermilk pancakes or two pieces of French toast for $5.

Pho Central

There’s plenty on the menu that’s under $5, including pork ball or beef ball soup and banh mi sandwiches for $3.95-$4.50. We recommend the house special banh mi for $4.50, which has meat, smoky bacon, ham and pate.

La Belle Patate

A plain steamed dog is $2.50 (which means you can get two!), or you can load it with onion, bacon, and cheese for $4.50. Prefer grilled? One grilled dog will cost you $3, while a grilled cheese dog will cost you $4. You can also get a Michigan, which is topped with a hearty meat sauce for $4.25.

Fritz European Fry House


Keep the good times rolling even while stopping for a bite! Before attending the Pride After Party at Lux Lounge, go to Fritz European Fry House and indulge in a small poutine for $5, medium fritz for $4, or a steamed or veggie hot dog for $3.50.

Breka Bakery & Café


Since Breka is open 24/7, you can stop by to caffeinate as well as satisfy your sweet tooth day or night with their irresistible baked goods for $5 or less.
