With Father’s Day going down this Sunday, now might be the time to think about what you’re going to do for your dad. If you’re panicking, then we’ve got a few ideas that might help you make your decision.

Here’s how you can treat your dad this Father’s Day.

Breakfast- OEB Yaletown

This newcomer to Vancouver’s breakfast scene has got something that we think most dads can enjoy- breakfast poutine. Treat them to some potatoes, bacon, poached eggs, cheese curds and hollandaise. Are they on a diet? Half arugula instead!

Gift- Geranium Leaf Body Scrub from Aesop


There’s like 3 different Aesop flagships in Vancouver now, which should be a good indicator of their success. Anyway, dads (at least ours) aren’t really into skincare, but this body scrub feels fantastic and only has to be used once a week. Plus, it’s only $47! That’s a screaming deal.

Lunch- Au Comptoir

This French spot in Kitsilano is perfect for a quick lunch that is still going to impress your pops. Why? Because they do an incredible steak and fries that every dad in the city needs to try at least once. No foolin’.

Activity- Golfing

Golfing is practically a requirement for dads. Fortunately for you, the University Golf Club at UBC has got a great course that is perfect for an extended Father’s Day gift. Just find a family friend and his dad, and you’re cruising. Or bring your mom and sibling, whatever works!

Dinner- Pepino’s


Late dinners (7:45 onwards) are still available at this nostalgic spaghetti house. What’s better than a big ol’ bowl of spaghetti after a day on the links? Absolutely nothing, that’s what. Treat your dad to a great Italian meal.

And there you have it, Vancouver. Our guide to a memorable Father’s Day. Of course, if your dad is more ‘stay at home and watch movies all day’, then that’s no problem! It’s his day, after all.
