It’s morning o’clock and it’s time to enjoy a delicious breakfast at Cora Breakfast and Lunch on Robson Street. This menu has different options from classic breakfasts, crepes, kids menu, etc. with large portions of food for a lower price and the best taste, without a doubt the best option to recharge your energy for the rest of the day.
After having a delicious breakfast you could do a walk or a bike ride through Stanley Park with one of the best views of the city which runs 5.5 miles around, along the way you can appreciate different sculptures and significant places for the city such as Brock Point Totem Pole, Girl in a Wetsuit, Siwash Rock, etc. Or if you are adventurous and would like to get to know the city from another perspective, a seaplane ride is your best option, with walks of up to 20 minutes. As the day continues and the heat and it is a good excuse to go to Granville Island and visit some of its breweries, there you will find several options of light, strong beers, IPA, etc.
