If you haven’t noticed lately, Downtown Vancouver is becoming quite a fun place to explore. During the day you can see people filling the sidewalks going to work, restaurants, the bank, massage and much more. Most evenings, especially this time of  year, the city begins to see an increase in the number of folks walking to their favorite wine bar, or popping in to grab cocktails and appetizers before the drive home, maybe even stopping to do a little indoor rock climbing.

Whatever it is, the local businesses in Vancouver are so happy to see familiar faces. One thing that is wonderful to know, if you are going to visit downtown, is where to grab a good bite to eat. Natural Body Works would like to share a few local favorites for dining in or grabbing something on the run.
