Teahouse in Stanley Park

Northwestern US in Downtown & West End

Occupying a gabled 1930s park building, this lovely spot serves contemporary West Coast classics such as roasted BC sablefish and Fraser Valley duck, along with jaw-dropping sunset patio views over Burrard Inlet. It's a good place for weekend brunch – shrimp and scallion omelet recommended. The park's Third Beach is a few steps away: ideal for an evening stroll after dinner.

The wine list has some good BC bottles; here's your chance to dive into a tipple or two from popular regional wineries such as Blasted Church and Quail's Gate.
