So you're probably reading this article because 1) you appreciate tasty food accompanied by tasteful restaurant decor, 2) You and your girls are stuck deciding where to go for lunch on the weekend because you're all super indecisive, and/or 3) you're an Instagram enthusiast always on the hunt for cute places to snap photos of your girlfriend candidly sippin' her cocktail or munchin' while she's brunchin'.

Whichever category you fall under, I got you covered, girl. Here are 16 of Vancouver's cutest restaurants.

1. Medina Cafe // 780 Richards St.

One of the best, and busiest, brunch spots in downtown Vancouver, the Mediterranean-inspired Cafe Medina will have you going back for more convinced that the 45 minute wait is completely justifiable.

2. The Foundation // 2301 Main St.

Their super-sized Utopia Nachos and super cheap sangria served in mason jars! This hipster vegan and vegetarian restaurant takes comfort food to a whole other level. Oh, and did I mention they play trap music like every night?

I don't know a single person who doesn't appreciate a good taco. Along with the chic, modern design of the restaurant, I promise you'll get some like-worthy taco photos for your IG.

5. Suika // 1626 West Broadway St.

The Japanese fusion izakayas and unique cocktails, combined with its urban atmosphere makes Suika Snack Bar a neighbourhood favourite.

6. Chewies // 2201 West 1st Ave.

Happy hour drinks. Buck-a-Shuck oysters. A chill, rustic, nautical vibe. Need I say more?

7. Roof Garten // 670 Smithe St.

A roof-top garden dining and cocktail lounge hidden in the middle of the city. I don't know what's cuter, the fact that it's roof top, or that it's a garden.
