Gallery Café information
The mezzanine level of the Vancouver Art Gallery is home to a chatty indoor dining area complemented by what is possibly downtown's best and biggest patio. The food is generally of the salad and sandwiches variety, but it's well worth stopping in for a drink, especially if you take your coffee (or bottled beer) out to the parasol-forested outdoor area to watch the Robson St clamor.
