Welcome to another "Fresh Sheet" update featuring take out and delivery options from restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and more across Metro Vancouver.
Particularly exciting today is the inclusion of some spots that had been temporarily closed, like Trafiq (makers of some incredible cakes) and Trans-Am (an award-winning bar known for their wicked burgers), as well as the ressurection of Blind Sparrow, a West End restaurant that shuttered in Tk. And of course, much more from several places.
There's some damn awesome stuff happening with Vancouver's incredible restaurants right now, and if you can, please support them. They won't all survive.
I've been working to keep you updated on what different restaurants and food businesses are doing at this time. You can read more about some options here:
- Vancouver restaurants clear fridges for shut down, donate food and money
- Metro Vancouver restaurants, food businesses find creative solutions to stay afloat, help people during COVID-19 crisis
- How to support your local brewery during the COVID-19 outbreak

Additionally, please use the excellent website Breaking Bread to connect directly to restaurants and order food, as well as purchase gift certificates and merchandise.
As emails and DMs come in from restaurants and food businesses, or as I am able to track them via social media, I am rounding them up here regularly to keep you informed.
Bear in mind that due to the COVID-19 crisis, things may change rapidly. Please connect directly with the restaurant via phone, email, website, or social media, before making plans that depend upon their offerings being available.
Fresh sheet for Thursday, April 2, 2020
East Van's Aleph Eatery has re-opened their kitchen, and shifted to a fully vegan menu of Middle Eastern eats. They're doing pick-up and delivery of meal combos, sides, and drinks, with online ordering.
The West End's Blind Sparrow closed up on Denman in the fall of 2018, but they've ressurrected themselves as The Blind Sparrow Fried Chicken Co., offering fried chicken, fries, sandwiches, burgers, and other comfort eats, plus booze, for take-out (pick up at their sibling restaurant Hook in English Bay) or delivery.
One of Vancouver's favourite bakeshops is now taking orders for 6" cakes. And their cake is super delish. Pre-order online for pick-up at scheduled times.
The small bar known for their drinks and big burgers has fired up a fresh menu for pick-up. Order burger and booze combos for yourself or a date night by calling or emailing via "reservations" on their site.
