Savannah Olsen, owner of the Old Faithful Shop, a store that stocks timeless handcrafted and heritage goods, such as heirloom wool army blankets and Edison light bulbs, takes us on a tour of the Gastown neighborhood, which is where Vancouver began—as the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
A Revamped Gastown Diner
Mark Brand revamped this 55-year-old institution while keeping it a place that longtime Gastown residents could still recognize and enjoy. The classic menu at this part butcher shop, part retro diner includes burgers, fried chicken, and sundaes.
