It's the season to eat your heart out!
12 Adorable Restaurants To Go In Vancouver With Your BFFs This Fall

Hello October! The leaves are changing, Halloween is coming and it is officially fall (even though I'm still in denial). This beautiful season sure does bring some delicious food — and I'm not just talking about pumpkin spice flavoured everything. 

We may have to say goodbye to patio season (and I for one am definitely not ready to let go yet), but to make up for it, autumn brings rich, indulgent, downright delicious comfort food best served in a cozy restaurant or cafe. 

On the lookout for things to do as the weather gets colder? Grab your fave food buddies and embark on a fall food adventure through the city. Swimsuit season is long gone so what better time to eat your heart out?
