Communal Tables

If you are afraid of eating solo when out in a restaurant, or looking to meet some other like minded folk, I have compiled this list for you. Here is a comprehensive list of Communal Tables at restaurants and cafes around the Vancouver area. If you are on your own, or with a friend and you want to either eavesdrop on conversations or you want to join in the conversation!
