|This neighbourhood shopping district is centered around
41st Avenue along West Boulevard, but extends from 37th to 45th, and from Balsam
to Maple. It has the feel of a small town main street, catering to the residents
of this quaint neighbourhood. The sidewalks are often full of locals browsing
the many shops.
Kerrisdale has the feel of an old fashioned, if upscale, village. Many of the
shops have been around for a long time, and the best of them exude secure
self-confidence; they are well established and sure of themselves.
Kerrisdale Village has been a thriving business community since its inception in
the early 20th Century. Today it offers a cornucopia of shops, eateries and
services that would rival those of any bustling metropolis. But where Kerrisdale
has kept up with its tony downtown neighbours, it has not lost its quaint
village charm and welcoming spirit that’s as warm as a Norman Rockwell postcard.
Anyone who has been to the village of Kerrisdale is immediately transported to
another time. The shops and businesses are “with it” and trendy but the ambience
of the area is one of refined elegance sporting one on the city’s best
Kerrisdale’s vast array of sushi restaurants is but one of the eclectic taste
treats awaiting shoppers. Tasteful terra cotta coloured pots burst forth with
seasonal displays while lamp standards in our classic blue colours exhibit
creatively designed banners, lights and swags depending on the season. Newspaper
box surrounds, benches and bus shelters all are part of a design standard
Some of Vancouver’s best shops give Kerrisdale as their address and no matter

Village. From the best couture for baby to an oasis for your urban puppy, every
age and taste can be accommodated in our more than 200 shops, all perfectly
intermingled with coffee houses, eateries and galleries offering plenty of comfy

Kerrisdale’s smart patrons haven’t had to trek to the downtown core in years
(but of course they do as these are some of the hippest clientele in the city)
for shoes, leather goods, duvets, beds and bedding and some of the most
exclusive furniture in town. The best in kitchenware, home design, lighting and
kitchen products located cheek to jowl with quaint independent book shops and
stationery stores, all are found along the brick-paved sidewalks of Kerrisdale
Village. And where else can the entire family meet for lunch after having found

more cozy. In Kerrisdale Village you’ll discover stores that make staying home

best in landscape paintings to fresh floral masterpieces for the table.
Kerrisdale Village has a wealth of dining out opportunities and all in the
moderate to more than affordable price ranges. Coffee cafes with quick-fix
cuisines abound and table service eateries are discovered on all streets and
avenues. And if it’s ethnic your seeking, look no further than Kerrisdale where
sushi is our middle name but by no means the only culturally flavoured food

stove steaming all day long!
