VANCOUVER, BC — They say you can’t keep a good Mary down. Just in time for Pride, Mary’s on Davie—the evolution of an iconic Vancouver restaurant—opened today at 1202 Davie Street.

After an extensive renovation, a bold new design concept, and a totally reinvented menu, Mary’s on Davie is primed to become a fabulous food and drink destination for locals and visitors alike. Part upscale neighbourhood diner, part sassy brunch spot, and 100% part of the community, Mary’s on Davie is a place where everyone’s a little bit Mary.

“Mary’s is back in a big way,” explained marketing director, co-owner, and Mary-in-Chief Astrid O. Lalonde. “We’re absolutely thrilled to introduce this new restaurant to our neighbourhood, showcase our fantastic new menu, and give back to our communities. There’s so much history to share, and countless new memories to create—we hope you’ll pop in and discover your inner Mary.”

Menu items like burgers, eggs benny, Mary’s perogies, and croque madame offer a classic diner experience with a twist. Whether brunching with friends, or winding up after the club — Mary’s is here for you.

The restaurant’s new brand was designed by BSTRO, a Vancouver and San Francisco-based marketing agency specializing in LGBTQ2+ projects and brand identities like the West End Business Improvement Association. The restaurant’s decor was brought to life by Raw Interior Design with the Davie Village in mind—from the interior colour palette that pays homage to Jim Deva Plaza, to the transgender-inclusive washroom facilities, to the bright, bold retro bar stools perfectly designed for conversation and sharing a moment.

Mary’s on Davie opened today at 11am.
