If you haven't discovered Ladner, what are you waiting for?
Historic Ladner Village is a great spot to spend the day meandering locally owned shops, many with old-fashioned storefronts reminiscent of old towns. The Village is often used as a film set for this very reason! This itinerary gives you an afternoon in Ladner, shopping, and eating - what a great combo!
When you first turn onto 48th Avenue and enter historic Ladner Village, you'll be hard-pressed to miss Stir Coffee House, proudly pouring 49th Parallel Coffee. Fuel up with a specialty coffee or steeped tea. Their baristas are top-notch, so feel free to macchiato, almond milk it up. Fun fact - the owner, Robert, is the son of Johnny Lowe, who operated Ladner Grocery in this very spot decades ago.
Head down 48th Street towards a boulevard of picturesque storefronts home to locally owned & managed shops. Hygge Bath will help you curate a cozy lifestyle with their bath bombs, organic skincare, and zen-inspired household items and a growing session at Vinca's Kitchen will inspire cooks of all levels, from toast burners to culinary creators, with their colorful tableware, cookbooks, linens, and kitchen gadgets.
Turn on to Delta Street and continue to Angela's for a West Coast vibe catering to our casual style, featuring BC brands like Herschel and Corkcicle, as well as surf favs Billabong and Body Glove. Get your summer staples or snowbird vacation gear here with board shorts, suits, flip flops & more.
Time for a break? This strip has it all. From local brews to baristas. If coffee is required, Localz Urban Cafe features hot speciality beverages and seasonal festive treats to warm up your shopping spree. Or head across the street to Ladner's Ale Trail destination, Britannia Brewing, for a pint and fish & chips. Il Posto, a casual Italian Eatery with a Main street vibe is also steps away featuring stone-oven pizzas, pasta, and wines galore. So, what’s it going to be?
Before you wrap your shopping day in Ladner, around the corner is one of the most unique shops - Dragonfly Antique & Salvage. If you're a lover of vintage goods and spectacular finds, allow browsing time for this gem of a store chock-full of collectibles and pieces. And finally, around the corner yet is West Coast Seeds flagship store. For green thumb gardeners, it's pure magic.
