Burnaby is a bustling metropolis located directly east of Vancouver, in the geographical centre of the Lower Mainland. The city’s unique location makes it an incredible cultural and multicultural crossroads in many ways – including its rich and diverse culinary offerings.
A walk through any Burnaby neighbourhood reveals a cornucopia of aromas and tastes. From elegant Pacific Northwest cuisine with lakeside dining to authentic Asian and South Asian fare – you’ll find it all (and more) in Burnaby. When you consider more than 100 languages are spoken here, Burnaby’s array of delicious culinary options should come as little surprise.
For an exceptional dining experience, visit the Heights – a nostalgic, century-old community boasting quaint shops and cozy restaurants. Pop into Chez Christophe for a perfect pain au chocolat prepared by award-winning, Swiss-trained chocolatier Christophe Bonzon. For lunch or dinner, try Anton’s – an old-school Italian joint oozing with ambiance and flavour. Or step back in time to the 1940s at Glenburn Soda Fountain & Confectionery, an old-fashioned soda shoppe with cool retro treats (think Florida Cows, egg creams and raspberry-lime Rickeys) along with modern favourites.
