Taka’s SushiIn spite of being one of White Rock’s most renowned Sushi joints, Taka’s is priced quite reasonably while serving delicious food.

Tabletop Crêpes and GamesOne of the most fun places to eat in White Rock, Tabletop Crepes not only offers excellent food at a good price, but also provides board games for customers! While it may sound like its limited to coffee house snack food, customers can pick up flat breads, sandwiches and wraps as well as crêpes! Nearly all of the sweet crêpes are under $10.00, and a wide selection of savouries are as well! Our favourites are the Game of S’mores (chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers for $6.95) and the Crêpe Gatsby Crêpe (served with chicken, feta, and mushrooms for $9.95).
