If you’re planning on taking in the sights of the seaside peninsula of White Rock over the next few weeks, make sure you come on an empty stomach, especially if you’re in the mood for eclectic and affordable dining options.

In addition to amazing local cuisine there will also be French, Greek, and Vietnamese options available to those wanting a true ethnic experience.
And then there are the absolutely amazing desserts… Bittersweet chocolate cake, salted caramel cheese cake jar, and it just keeps getting better.
