Vancouver Cheap Eats: Honourable Mentions

Dec 19 2017, 4:12 pm

It’s impossible to list all the $5 food finds that Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow hunt each week. While this is a good problem to have, it still doesn’t make the process of choosing who makes the cut any easier. But just because some cheap eats aren’t posted doesn’t mean they’re not just as delicious and affordable as the ones that did, which is why we’re honouring them with their very own feature. So let’s show some love for our Cheap Eat Honourable Mentions.

Blue Mountain Cafe

Blue Mountain Cafe

We’re incredibly impressed with this breakfast deal: a bagel or English muffin sandwich with eggs, ham and cheese plus a 12oz coffee for only $3.95! Once the Fall season hits, the extra large wonton soup for $4.95 will be a good way to warm up. See more $5 eats Downtown.

Muffin Granny

Who wouldn’t want to head to Muffin Granny’s and have a scrumpet? Sounds like perfection to us. You can also add cream cheese or a slice of cheddar for an extra dollar. Granny isn’t short of options either, as there’s maple syrup crepes on special for $4.25. See more $5 eats on Granville Island.

49th Parallel

luckys doughnuts

You‘ve probably been living under a rock if you haven’t heard of Lucky’s Donuts. Even the carb-free, gluten-free, sugar-free people must have been tempted by a waft of these delicious hand-crafted pillows of deep fried doughy perfection. At 49th Parallel you can enjoy the ultimate combo: a coffee and the day’s featured doughnut for $4. See more $5 eats in Mount Pleasant.

Gyoza King

Daily specials under $5 plus appies to mix, match, and share. We highly recommend the cheese croquettes and spring rolls for $3.95. See more $5 eats in The West End.

Pho Goodness

My goodness the banh mi’s here are cheap and plentiful. Grab a seat at the window and do some fine eating and people watching on Vancouver’s most colourful street. See more $5 eats on Davie Street.
