A new restaurant concept that popped up in Vancouver last month has already called it quits. Harbour550 announced via Instagram story over the weekend that it had shuttered. In the note to its social media followers on Saturday, the restaurant said it was sorry to inform patrons that it would be shutting its doors due to lease termination.

Starbucks Howe Street

Another downtown Vancouver Starbucks cafe has closed its doors. The coffee chain’s 1095 Howe Street corner location has officially shuttered. It’s not too surprising to see more of this company’s locations calling it quits, as Starbucks announced it would be closing up to 200 locations across Canada over the course of two years this past Spring.

M8 Bistro

Waterfront neighbourhood spot M8 Bistro & Bar has quietly closed its doors in Vancouver. The 60-seat, 1010 Beach Avenue restaurant was tucked right next to Beach Ave Bar and Grill, which took over the former space of TAPshack near Burrard Bridge this past spring.

IHOP Kingsway

Bad news for cheap and cheerful breakfast lovers, an IHOP in Metro Vancouver has recently closed its doors. The famous American pancake house’s outpost located at 5137 Kingsway in Burnaby served up its last stack of flapjacks at the end of October.
