Another hidden local in Marpole is Friend’s Cafe by Fraser River Park.

Look, it’s not a culinary, Chef’s table experience but it is a cute little place to take your family and friends after a day in the park. Think of it as street food but inside a cafe. The comfort food has delivered – I love chicken tenders and fries and the price tag here is good too. The burgers are also good for its price. Heck, I’m mostly here for that homemade lemonade depicted. Whenever I feel like a lazy day where I don’t want to cook nor break the bank, I go here.
