Since 2010, Vancouver’s Burrard Hotel has been restored to much of its original late-1950’s glory; mixing retro influences with sleek, modern design touches throughout its 72 rooms and central courtyard oasis. Affordable, accessible and fun, The Burrard’s many guest amenities include free internet, HDTVs, in-room Nespresso CitiZ espresso machines, free cruiser bike rentals, complimentary passes to the Steve Nash Fitness Centre and more.
The Burrard is proud to now offer guests and Vancouverites the best amenity of all; “Betty” is a stylish café right next to the lobby – a charming place for breakfast, lunch, drinks, snacks and more.
Think of Betty as your local friend in the know, a hip downtown girl sharing all of her favourite BC indulgences. Whether you’re swinging by for something to fuel your morning, meeting a friend for lunch, or looking for a quick treat on the way home –Betty has plenty of Vancouver’s much-loved local fare on offer, such as:
– Authentic Belgian waffles from Kitsilano’s legendary Patisserie Lebeau.
– Fresh and flaky pies from The Pie Hole, like Steak & Guinness, Strawberry Rhubarb and more.
– Pastries, croissants, cookies and muffins from the ladies at Gastown’s Cadeaux Bakery.
– ‘Fresh’ by Savoury Chef salads, soups and sandwiches made with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients.
While there are plenty of non-alcoholic options, from Happy Planet juices to espresso drinks available, Betty is also known to enjoy the occasional tipple as well. Whether it’s the Okanagan’s most popular, award-winning wines from JoieFarm Winery, Red Rooster and Road 13 Vineyards, or local craft beer from much-lauded breweries likeStanley Park, Driftwood Brewing and East Van’s own R & B Brewing, Betty has a little something for everyone!
