I think for cafe Crepe they would prefer the parklet, for two reason, the first being that the cafe crepe location is the narrowest point of the sidewalk (the building juts quite far out), and second they are an eatery.
Such parklets would probably do little to help a fashion retailer, or other such businesses.
That being said, I like these little parklets but their locations should be targeted in front of eateries.
Oh, and on another Robson note, once again walking downtown all of the garbage cans were overflowing onto the side walk and making a mess, again memo to Vancouver, a pleasant pedestrian experience is one where you are not constantly walking over garbage
Also saw a bunch of graffiti tagged on tree trunks near the Burrard street bridge / beach area, very nice, thank you assholes.
