Located on an out-of-the-way corner between Main and Fraser Streets, Marché St. George is both a market and a French café, stocking organic produce, locally crafted sausage and local dairy products, such as artisanal cheeses. The philosophy behind this Vancouver restaurant is clearly quality, not quantity. Their carefully curated shelves hold a lovely selection of groceries from around the world, including Italian squid ink pasta, Australian sea salt and Japanese marmalade.

French Café

Come for a delicious fresh-made coffee (no drip here) or hot chocolate made with melted chocolate and hot milk, served in the French way in a small bowl. You can sit and relax on the sunny sheepskin-lined bench in the front window, enjoy a tasty flat bread creation and soak in the old-world ambiance of the café. They have a few choices if you’re a pastry lover and, being a French café, you won’t be disappointed. Their pain au chocolat is the best I’ve eaten outside Europe. It’s moist and buttery with just enough dark chocolate in the centre.

Friendly Vancouver Restaurant and Market

Not only is Marché St. George a beautiful place for people watching but everyone who comes here seems to be friendly, so you’ll likely strike up a conversation with one of the many locals who frequent the place. There is always a constant stream of people buying groceries and stopping by the café for a snack and a drink, but the place just far enough off the beaten path that it never feels crowded. Despite the extremely well-organized, stylish atmosphere, it’s a very welcoming place, and it’s pretty kid-friendly, too. The owners Pascal Roy and Janaki Larsen have placed a box of wooden toys and a shelf of books in the shop for their toddler Lola to share with any other little children who stop by.
