Buzzing patios in Burnaby Vancouver

Where can you linger outside over dinner with a mountain view and dream of a vacation in Paris, or see the sunset reflected in a nearby lake beside a warming fire? On one of Burnaby’s many gorgeous patios, of course.

Personas Patio + Restaurant + Lounge

1
4331 Dominion St, Burnaby, BC V5G 1C7

The layout of this patio directs your eye upwards to the sky, ensuring that you enjoy to the fullest the sunset light cast on clouds. That makes it all the better for savouring a stein of beer, glass of wine or signature cocktail. There’s table seating if you’re sampling the gourmet-twist local fare or one of the sharing dishes, plus you can lounge on one of the ample sofas. Miniature fires dotted around the patio keep you warm when the sun sinks.

Horizons Restaurant

2
100 Centennial Way, Burnaby, BC V5A 2X9

Need reminding of what a beautiful part of the world you reside? Book a patio table at Horizons Restaurant atop Burnaby Mountain. The 180-degree view takes in the mesmerising mountain skyline, sprawling city and Burrard Inlet. Arrive before sunset and watch the vista transform into glittering lights and haunting mountain silhouettes. You might have to warm your hands in your pockets, but the food is good and the view is spectacular so it’s worth every cent.

Oui Paris Cafe

3
4092 Hastings St, Burnaby, BC V5C 2H9

It may be “petit” and only look out onto workaday Hastings, but this little patio is worth a mention for its “je ne sais quoi” factor alone. Indoors, you’ll think you’ve ambled into a brasserie-come-bakery in a corner of France, thanks to its heavy furniture, frou-frou umbrellas over tiny tables and Gallic goodies. This ambience spills out onto the patio with decorative chairs and tables set out Paris style for a whiff of quirky French sophistication in Burnaby.

Cactus Club Cafe

7320 Market Cross, Burnaby, BC V5J 0A2

Burnaby has three locations for this Vancouver born-and-bred operation, and one thing’s for sure – it’s always worth dropping by their patios. Comfort is the key word with seating that enables you to spend hours nursing a drink or two. Indulge in some of the fresh and sustainable food on offer, courtesy of The Cactus Club Executive Chef, Rob Feenie, Canada’s first Iron Chef America Champion.

Caffe Divano

5
4568 Hastings St, Burnaby, BC V5C 2K4

We know you’re coming here for the cappuccinos, lattes and butter tarts. If it’s not those things, it’s got to be the delectable sour cream coffee cake. It has nothing to do with the chic Italian boulevard-style seating out front at this cafe. Nor does it have anything to do with the fact you can sit with your paper, chill and people watch on Hastings Street while the sun beats down on the table umbrella above you.

The Hart House

6
6664 Deer Lake Ave, Burnaby, BC V5E 4H3

Don't be surprised if you feel as though you’re on a movie set while wining and dining on this patio. Its Tudoresque appearance and stunning views of Deer Lake have made The Hart House an ideal site for films on more than one occasion. The roomy patio with umbrella-covered seating looks out onto thick woods and romantic glimpses of silvery water, breathtaking from dawn to dusk. Brunch, lunch and dine here or enjoy a glass of wine or craft beer.

Riverway Clubhouse

7
9001 Bill Fox Way, Burnaby, BC V5J 5J3

Golf is such a relaxing sport and gazing out over a beautiful course is equally tranquil. The Riverway Clubhouse overlooking the Riverway Golf Course has got to be one of the most beautiful patios in Burnaby. The course undulates away to a tree-lined horizon dotted with shrubs and a pond that features an elegant fountain. There’s table seating for supping on the fusion grub and sofas if you want to enjoy a craft beer or cocktail.
