What’s open near me Christmas Day (2017 edition)

December 22, 2017

Every Christmas Day I wonder where I might go on the Westside of Vancouver to get a hot coffee, a bite, a live plug-in and a strong Wi-Fi signal. This year I’m wondering with only three day to spare, which is just not enough time to make the hundreds of necessary phone calls.

At least I can confirm that a few restaurants and coffee houses will be open on December 25 in and around the Fairview neighbourhood (which is my personal concern).

Blenz Coffee (I confirmed this location in person)

McDonalds (these locations were confirmed by the franchisee John Marsh)

Starbucks (the location finder erroneously lists a lot as open. The following locations were confirmed by phone)

  • Broadway & Granville—2505 Granville St., Vancouver: 8:30 a.m-5:00 p.m.
  • Burrard1855 Burrard St., Vancouver: 8:30 a.m.5:00 p.m.
  • Granville & 2nd1500 W. 2nd Ave., Vancouver: 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
  • Oak & 12th—2787 Laurel Street, Vancouver:  6:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

Waves Coffee House (hours are from the store locator but I confirmed Hastings hours by phone. Most others I called will be closed)

  • Chinatown—495 Main Street, Vancouver, (604) 568-9283: 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
  • Hastings—492 W. Hastings St.,Vancouver, (604) 568-8568: 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

White Spot (I confirmed the following location by phone. See store locator for other locations)

  • Kingsway & Knight—1476 Kingsway, Vancouver, (604) 874-2825: 11 a.m.3 p.m.

I’m guessing that all locations of Denny’s, the 24-restaurant, will be open on Christmas Day, same as every other day.

While I would be happier to have many more locations on this list—particularly independent coffee houses and restaurants—the above bit of detective work was frankly enough to tucker me out. Next year I promise to start earlier.

    Can I buy a Christmas coffee, or a meal, or a drink or whatever? I love your posts. I dislike charity, but a friendly gesture should always have a place.
