Commercial Drive is traditionally the city's Little Italy but now it is the place to be for the hip and hipsters alike. The Italian influence remains, although you can also find an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, and of course coffee. This part of the city has the lowest proportion of chains and big names I have seen.
Take the Skytrain Expo or Millennium lines to Commercial-Broadway and walk north along Commercial Drive.
