Vancouver Cheap Eats: Free Stuff

Dec 19 2017, 4:24 pm

It’s hard to believe you can find anything for free these days. Remember bottomless pop or fries? Or the complimentary bread basket that was served at almost every restaurant? Well now many of those same places are making you pay for both. The nerve. 

We’re not sure if it’s because the temperatures have cooled down or because students have gone from cracking beers to cracking books, but there are five places in Vancouver that are actually giving things away. So to start the weekend off right, Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow are letting you know where to go for the ultimate price tag: FREE.

JJ Bean False Creek


To celebrate the grand opening of the new False Creek location, all next week you can take advantage of freebies, promos, and major discounts. Besides 50 per cent off baked goods on Tuesday and 50 per cent off sandwiches and wraps on Wednesday, you’ll get a free 8oz drink anytime before 10 a.m. on Friday, September 27. Then stop by on Saturday for the official party and score a free cupcake.

La Taqueria

These taco professionals are awesome for a couple of reasons: Tuesday and Wednesday.

Bonchaz Bakery Cafe


The morning special means you get a free Bonchaz bun with any beverage. Just be sure to set your alarm as this sweet deal is only available until 10:37 a.m..



When you register for the Starbucks loyalty program by September 22, you’ll automatically get a free drink! Fan of pumpkin spiced lattes? They taste even better without a price tag.

Blenz Coffee


For the next four weeks, Blenz on Broadway and Maple is giving away free food all month! From croissants to pastries, make sure you stop by and take advantage while it lasts!
