Which establishment in downtown Vancouver has the best patio? Well, I first have to admit that there are so many good ones out there that it is definitely a matter of opinion. It also depends on the weather, the time of day and the company that you are with. So here are a few of our favorites and why we like them…

Cactus Club
Chili Chicken, Mini Burgers, Wines by the Glasses, People Watching
(Located at the corner of Burrard and Dunsmuir)

Marmalade
All day breakfast, Great False Creek view, Bike right up, Patio bar-seats
(Located on the Seawalk almost under the Burrard Bridge)

English Bay Boathouse
Great English Bay view and people watching, Boathouse Bellini Royale, Sweet Chili Chicken, Covered & heated in spring/fall
(Located at the corner of Denman and Beach)

The Mill
Floatplane watching, Hawaiian Pizza and shared Nachos, Raspberry Lemonade Brain Freeze,
(Down the stairs from the foot of Bute and Cordova)

Inlets
People watching on Robson, Great breakfast
(Robson Street between Bute and Thurlow at the Blue Horizon Hotel)

The Lift
Great view, Cocktail list – specifically the ‘Lola’, Fish and Chips
(On the Seawalk beside the Westin Bayshore tower)

This list is in no way complete and as we keep trying new places I am sure we will have more favorites by the end of the summer.
