Dec 19 2017, 7:39 pm

They say that you eat with your eyes first, which clearly explains why we’re constantly drooling whenever we’re perusing our Instagram feed. Over the last few weeks, there have been a few posts that have garnered some extra attention for their five dollar photo, so Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow are sharing the top 5 pics with the most #InstaLove.

Coo Coo Café


Given that their English Muffin Paninis are only $3.75, Coo Coo Café usually houses a packed patio every summer. Perfect for chowing down and starting your day.

Lido Cafe


If you want Lido Café’s fresh, melt-in-your-mouth buttered pineapple buns, then you should be prepared to wait. These buns are so popular, there’s usually a backlog of orders because their oven is working at maximum capacity every day. At only $1.65 per bun, they’re well worth the wait.

PappaRoti Café


PappaRoti Café has finally ventured into Canada to offer a bun experience unlike any that we’ve seen or tasted around the city. These buns are made fresh to order, straight from the oven to your table with a light, buttery taste. For the Nutella and banana bun special, it’s $4.90, or you can keep it simple with the original for $3.65.

Yek O Yek


Pick up one of these flakey, massive pies for $3.99 at Yek O Yek in Mount Pleasant and choose from mushroom, lentil, veggie or cheese.

La Taqueria


La Taqueria is awesome for many reasons, and it’s not just their delicious tacos. They use local, organic and sustainable products all under our five-dollar budget. Choose from vegetarian tacos for two bucks a pop, or meat tacos for $2.50.
