The Vancouver Art Gallery‘s Gallery Cafe is one of the best kept secrets in downtown. Tucked away on the second floor, or up the steps off of Howe Street it’s a great place for lunch anytime. Its sprawling patio is a great place for a quiet lunch for one, two or a group outing. Potted plants frame the outdoor tables, sparrows beg for crumbs and the noise of the traffic one level below is drowned out by classical music.
The menu features rotating specials, quiches, soups, sandwiches, multiple salads and dessert choices. The cafeteria set up is casual, licensed and offers hot and cold espresso drinks. Check out their full menu here.
Live Jazz performances will be happening Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays 4:30pm-8:30pm until the end of September.
