    Vancouver’s classic $2.95 breakfast, Bon’s is where you want to go for a quick and easy meal that will keep you full for most of the day.

  • The Warehouse

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    One of several restaurants in Vancouver boasting a flat-price menu, everything at The Warehouse is a simple $4.95. These aren’t sad little tapas either– enjoy a full meal for under five bucks.

  • Sushi Dragon

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Everyone has their favourite cheap sushi spot in the city, and Sushi Dragon is a strong contender to displace yours. Enjoy a $5.95 vegetarian special and a $6.95 seafood special every day.

  • Yummy’s Restaurant

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Proving that you can still get a cheap meal in Kitsilano, check out Yummy’s Restaurant for a $2.99 all-day breakfast or $3.99 burger.

  • Hamburger $2.85

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Vancouver’s food cart scene might not be as cheap as you’d hoped, but the $2.85 Hamburger Cart has your back. Located at Granville and Pender, there’s always a line.

  • Budgies Burritos

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Treat yourself to a burrito that’s been packed to the gills with delicious fixings for $8 or less. This’ll not only fill you up for half a day, but it’s filled with actual healthy ingredients.

  • The Foundation

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Whether you’re looking for a pitcher of beer, nachos, or a full meal, The Foundation can hook you up with a good deal. Meals start under $10.

  • The Academic

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    A cheap haven in Fairview, The Academic plays host to a $7 weekend brunch special, $0.75 Friday tacos, and a whole host of drink-plus-meal daily deals that come in at less than $10.

  • Lucy’s Eastside Diner

    By Vancouver Is Awesome

    Open 24 hours with diner-style meals that range from super cheap to good deals. The $8 double-decker grilled cheese sandwich is worth the visit alone.
