White Lunch


White Lunch | Restaurant | Unlike White Spot, another local restaurant, the white in White Lunch connotes colour of skin. They only served and hired white people, which is to say that it’s another chapter in Vancouver’s redneck past. The first location was at 124 W. Hastings, where Style Garage is currently located.
