Located upstairs inside the Vancouver Art Gallery this café offers a wonderful selection of salads, daily features, sandwiches, desserts and beverages. It is large and spacious and there are tables for sharing inside as well as outside on the large umbrella covered patio. On a sunny day this is the best garden patio in the city, and they have live music some evenings during the summer.

The food is delicious and the people watching is lots of fun, if you are eating alone then join one of the community tables. Enjoy a coffee or tea or an iced smoothie, or a beer or even a glass of wine. They offer a bucked of Grolsch beer for $12. The desserts selection is ever so changing and most of the desserts are $3.95 a piece.

Why not visit the Vancouver Art Gallery before or after a meal.
