With back to school season in full swing, Point Grey Village is the perfect spot for locals, students, and teachers to grab a bite to eat—even on a budget. Conveniently located just a stone’s throw away from UBC, the area along West 10th—between Tolmie and Discovery Street— is home to a number of good quality and affordable restaurants. So when you feel like you can’t face one more Kraft Dinner, there is a place in Point Grey Village to satisfy every taste.
If you’re a fan of Japanese food then it’s definitely worth checking out a couple of the local sushi restaurants. Sun Sushi (4512 West 10th Avenue) offers a 10 percent student discount or Everyday Sushi (4572 West 10th Avenue) does a 22-piece special student combo for $7.95, which can be enjoyed with one of the many flavours of bubble tea for $4.75 each.
For those looking for a truly unique experience, The Diner (4556 West 10th Avenue) is well worth a visit. Serving authentically British classics like Shepherd’s Pie, you can indulge in grub that’s fit for royalty. Even better, you don’t have to have the Queen’s bank balance since a student discount is offered Monday through Thursday.
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day—not to mention our favourite—so the newly-opened Danoo Café (4462 West 10th Avenue) is the answer to all our prayers! Who says croissants are just for breakfast? Satisfying our all-day cravings for the best morning munchies like waffles, omelettes, and bennys, this café is a must-stop.
And for the times you’re looking for something a little extra special, then Enigma (4397 West 10th Avenue) is the place for you. Serving the very best that the West Coast has to offer, Enigma’s chefs are passionate about creating dishes that are innovative, locally-sourced, and delicious. This cool, casual restaurant also offers group catering, perfect if you’re a professor looking to host a meeting over a great meal. While Enigma is open seven days it offers a great brunch complete with $5 Caesars on Saturday and Sunday. The restaurant has also recently just hired eight UBC students, so you may even see your friends while you dine!
