Rocky Mountain Flatbread – Space Centre Guests save 15%!
Only a 15 minute walk from the Space Centre, Rocky Mountain Flatbread serves delicious house made dishes: handcrafted flatbread pizzas, daily pastas, seasonal salads and soups, desserts “to live for” and a wide selection of BC wines and local beers. And for all those pizza lovers who are wheat intolerant – extremely tasty gluten free pizzas!  The daily salads, soups and cheesecake are gluten free too!
There are many things to be proud of at Rocky Mountain Flatbread, including: they use lots of local and organic produce, free range organic meats and Ocean Wise seafood; open kitchens and artisan ovens; kid friendly play kitchens; and the fact that the “carbon footprint” of every meal = 0. 
Maybe this is why locals have voted Rocky Mountain Flatbread as the Best Pizza in Vancouver and the Best Kid Friendly Restaurant five years running.
