Beecher Street Café exudes neighbourhood charm with a line-up of internationally inspired eats accented by house-made soups, sauces, and dressings. A team of Kobe beef sliders ($15) dressed in smoked gouda, blue cheese, apple cheddar, caramelized onions, and garlic aioli emerge from the kitchen to mediate conflicts between restless stomachs and eyes that leisurely peruse the café’s extensive menu. Celebrate hard-fought solitaire victories with a house-crafted champagne cream sauce poured over wild salmon ($24) with scallops and caviar. Dinnertime liberators can feast on free-range chicken breast ($22) in a parmesan horseradish crust. The mint-infused merlot reduction flavours a half-rack of dijon-crusted lamb ($34). Complement entrees with enthusiastic plate-licking and a glass of Argentinian malbec ($8.50) or Italian pinot grigio ($9.25). Like a pinstriped tracksuit, the Limoncello float ($9.75) radiates both class and playfulness, masquerading as a drink and a dessert with soda and Limoncello poured over vanilla bean gelato, fresh fruit, and mint.

Working in a sweltering kitchen for hours at a time can be a struggle, but Chef Tracy Rowand has spent more than a decade doing just that. Since graduating with honors from Dubrulle Culinary Institute in 1995, Chef Rowand has been a mainstay of the Vancouver food industry. Currently, she helms Taste to Savour Catering, taking fresh, seasonal ingredients and turning them into customized spreads for weddings, corporate events, and weight-lifting competitions for tables. Sample menus stand as a tribute to Rowand’s training and talent, brimming with creative dishes such as mussels in green curry broth, salmon and chive fritters, and grilled lamb crostini with artichoke puree. Rowand also recently expanded her enterprise with a café, where visitors can sample plates of quiche, naan pizza, and other unique nibbles.
There’s a comforting vibe at Divine Indulgence Café. Even though there's no family currently residing inside, the warm, repurposed house keeps its homelike atmosphere. The dining areas evoke the feeling of a well-worn abode with dark-wood furnishings and shelved knickknacks. The coziness extends to the menu as well, surfacing in comfort food dishes such as fish tacos or guacamole burgers made with house-made beef patties, Havarti cheese, bacon, guacamole salsa, and fresh baguettes. Decadent slices of cake and more than 20 different flavors of tea also add to the cafe's homeyness, as does the the baristas' constant reminders not to play ball inside.
