Nighthawks at the Diner

Today I had lunch at a little diner called Frenchie's on Dunsmuir Street, across the street from the church in this picture. If you're looking for something quintessentially Canadian (although not at all West Coast) I do recommend their poutine, tourtiere, and Montreal-style smoked meat sandwiches. I neglected to bring my good camera with me, so my iPhone and Hipstamatic came to my rescue again. Today starts a long weekend in Canada; we celebrate Victoria Day in honour of, of course, Queen Victoria. I have nothing special planned, just a lazy weekend - except of course some wandering around and taking photos!
