Save On Meats

Touting accolades from Vancouver Magazine and the Vancouver Courier, Save On Meats sates appetites with a butcher shop and grocery, all-day diner, and traditional sandwich counter. A weathered fluorescent sign, painted blue and adorned with the shop's signature flying pig, welcomes patrons as they step into an eatery infused with a retro '50s atmosphere but free from con artists claiming to be Lucille Ball’s dentist. Chefs pile plates with hearty diner fare ranging from all-day breakfast platters and simple sandwiches to burgers and chicken and waffles. Kitchen scholars helm cooking classes focused on grassroots food preparation and tactical food-fight strategies in butchering and canning. Colourful apparel and wares such as T-shirts and coffee mugs let visitors display their loyalty.
