The Tap and Barrel (Olympic Village) Surprisingly, the Tap and Barrel is a great place to take your kids for an early supper or brunch. They have a lending library that has a few good books for kids if you’re stuck and you can take it home if your little falls in love with it. Colouring pages are available for kids too. Great wine and beer are on tap too and check out the big screen for a hockey game. They have one of the biggest patios in town and the view is to die for.

They have so many varieties, gluten-free and vegan too that you could easily come here every week and try something new. Great for take out too or if you just want a quick bite with the kids.
