Long time ago, Capers was replaced by Whole Foods. Somewhat the same but many details are different. The upstairs diningroom is long gone.

This is now Whole Foods. The bakery and deli are good - some prices are a little cringe worthy though. Staff is super helpful. Produce is hit and miss.

The Salad bar is fresh and inviting always consistent. I have no idea who manages the kitchen and over sees the cooking and selection for the Hot Food part but they need to find another job. The food selection is so weird. Mostly Indian, and other ethnic food which is sometimes ok but there should be more variety and it... More

As a grocery - this place is everything you'd expect of the high-brow-for-no-good-reason scene. Then again, smack "Organic" on anything, and people here will pay dearly for it. The deli/to-go food is solid. A little higher priced for deli, but it's actually made there and not boil-in-bag (at least, if it is, they do a good show of making it... More

Ah, Capers. What would we do without your delicious pastry bar, fabulous soups and amazing salad? But, oh, the pain of not having you here with us in Ontario. We miss you. We send warm embraces to the unknown genius who made us our vegan Thankgiving dinner to take away to Whistler last October. It fed us for two nights... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
