Hastings Street, Burnaby from Alpha Avenue to Boundary Road

  Subjects:  The food, people and architecture of this unique multicultural area of Burnaby


Spend about two hours walking up and down Hastings Street and see some of the very interesting sites. There are many places to eat or nosh and peruse the offerings on the street. Be sure to stop at Coggs Vintage Antiques, 4353 E. Hastings Street where we have been invited inside to photograph many treasures. Your browser may not support display of this image.

A great half way point is the Dolce 67 Coffee Shop, 3790 E. Hasting Street, one block east of Boundary Road. If you have a sweet tooth, (like Lou), try their delicious gelato.

When you have completed your photographic journey, we will meet at 4:00pm at Vita Bella Ristorante, 4544 Hastings Street, one-half block east of Willingdon Avenue where Valarie and Leo Moschetti will allow us to photograph their restaurant and their preparation of the delicious food. For those who care to stay for an early dinner or snack, they will prepare one or more of their pasta dishes, (the exact choices to be determined). May I suggest the Linguine Chef Leonardo with roasted chicken breast, oven roasted tomatoes, kalamata olives, goat cheese and extra virgin olive oil.
