Some of the participating Restaurants
Straight outta Brooklyn
648 Main Street, Vancouver
Cuisine: New York style Pizza
The “New York Pizza” dates back to 1905 when Gennaro Lombardi, an immigrant pizzaiolo from Naples, began to serve pizza in his Little Italy grocery store. Lombardi created a unique pizza style similar to that from the old country. He still focused on a thin crust and high quality ingredients, but his pizzas were served ‘to go’ and ‘by the slice’. His influence led to the emergence of Italian American Pizzaiolos who began to make quality slices all over the immigrant neighbourhoods in Brooklyn. To this day, Brooklyn is renowned for having New York’s best pizza. Our aim is to bring a little New York to Vancouver by giving you an experience that is straight outta Brooklyn.
Klaus’s Kaffe Haus
291 E. Pender Street
Klaus’s Kaffee Haus is a unique place offering the best hand-made strudel with assorted fillings (sweet & savory).
235 East Pender Street, Vancouver
Cuisine: Plant-based Ice cream
The magic of Umaluma started with the simple desire to create a super healthy, organic, non-dairy alternative to traditional Italian gelato — the yummy stuff that’s creamy, smooth and bursting with flavour. We set out on our adventure to select only the finest organic ingredients we could find and combine them in exactly the right way. It turns out we just might be on to something truly special.
687 Main Street
Cuisine: Prepared food and market
Italian-inspired café offering healthy, housecooked meals and daily provisions. Featuring a multi-vendor pop-up inside their store featuring a selection of tasty food and drink.
