Ready to add some flavour to your regular route? Mask up, grab your #BusPass and hop aboard route 15 Downtown/UNBC for a taste of the city’s finest! Whether you seek out new haunts or return to long-held favourites, there’s so much to eat—and see—in Prince George!

Start your trip with a relaxing lunch at Nancy O’s, a downtown staple. This cool, eclectic establishment boasts a great atmosphere, delicious menu and the most amazing truffle parm fries.

After taking in the “good life”, fuel up for your adventure two blocks down at Zoe’s Java House. From specialty coffees and smoothies to Italian sodas, this community treasure has been handcrafting treats for over two decades!

Next on the list? Food for your soul at Two Rivers Gallery, the city’s centre for contemporary Canadian art and creativity. Explore current exhibitions, take a guided tour or sign up for a program. Looking for a more hands-on experience? Check out the gallery’s MakerLab 2RG where you can experiment with animation, silversmithing, 3D printing and more.

Inspired to learn after your artistic experience? Dive into a little research at the Prince George Public Library, or take it to the next level with your exclusive, card-holder access to free online courses!

Before heading home, stock up on provisions made with “traditional techniques and bold modern flavours” at one of downtown’s newest foodie hot spots, Birch & Boar. Besides keeping it artisan, the shop sources local for its farm-fresh meat and goods. From from tried-and-true favourites like charcuterie and savoury pies to the exotic—hello, truffle pâté—Birch & Boar is a go-to for every palate!
