The Modern Pantry
This grocery, bakery, wine bar, and cafe hybrid is one of our favorite lunch spots in North Vancouver. We love the sweet and savory pastries, like burnt lemon cake and brown butter chocolate chip cookies, the grilled cheese with housemade tomato jam, and any of the treats from local food producers (like bean-to-bar chocolate by Kaaj Chocolate). The original North Van location is a tiny grab-and-go spot, but the newer location in West Vancouver has indoor seating, two outdoor patios, and a full wine list. There are plenty of natural wines from British Columbia, and you should definitely pair them with cheese and charcuterie platters, housemade rosemary crackers, and veggie dips.
