Classic 1950’s diners are super fun. They are like taking a step back in time. In Vancouver, BC, there’s a fantastic diner called Frenchie’s. Just like the name implies, they serve up traditional French-Canadian fare including delicious poutine!
Inside there is the traditional black and white tile floors, red vinyl booths, a jukebox, and fun vintage signage and art. The tables even have cute ketchup and mustard bottles, just like you’d expect to have in the by-gone era.
The eats are fantastic! Frenchie’s stays true to traditional French-Canadian recipes. The classic poutine is made with a rich brown gravy, fresh squeaky cheese curds and fries that are wet, not crisp. It’s an experience not to be missed. There are also other variations including vegetarian, steak, hot dog and pepperoni.
There are tons of other traditional favourite dishes including Montreal smoked meat and ragout boulette.
Frenchie’s is open daily and is located near Richards and Dunsmuir in downtown Vancouver.
