I had yogurt parfait and a latte. the parfait was excellent with a very good granola on top. It's a busy little cafe that seems to be enjoyed by hotel guests (Rosewood) or the general public.

So close to the Vancouver Art Gallery and upscale hotels, the Bel Cafe at first looks like yet another pretentious little purveyor of schmancy coffees. However, in addition to all kinds of coffee and pastries, it serves the best soup I had while in town. We ate there twice, and I tried both the roasted tomato with Thai chili and... More

Great place for a quick bite to eat or a coffee in the morning. Croissants are absolutely fantastic you must try them. Only down fall is you are "suppose" to wait for a table but employees are not really paying attention and other customers just cut in front of you and grab the only table available...

This cafe was just at the corner from our hotel. The egg and ham sandwich was very delicious and reasonably priced. We were super happy that Bel Cafe saved us from having to pay a ridiculous amount of money for breakfast room service at our hotel.

What a lovely atmosphere to sit & be served so nicely. The piping hot Chicken Noodle Soup with pieces of chicken, diced onion, orecchiette & herbs made for an extremely tasty soup. So delicious that a couple next to me followed my example & ordered it. The small serve Steelhead Salmon Sushi Salad was equally as good & again one... More

Bel Cafe is our favourite cafe in Vancouver. Fresh food, great coffee and of course a smell that you never forget. Located inside the double Forbes 5 star Rosewood Hotel Georgia, it's a place you must go. Grab the Yogurt!

Stopped in for a rapini arugula Asiago croissant and a pistachio kouign-amann and both were delicious. The texture of theses was excellent and they were delicious. The Valrhona chocolate mocha was good and wasn't excessively sweetened like many of the large coffee chain shops. The service was good and this was a nice break on our early morning walk through...

We were staying in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia and this is their casual cafe. During the week it is very busy with city workers getting T/A pastries and coffee. There are benches where you can eat and you line up to order your food. The coffee and blueberry scone i had were both very good. No fried or scrambled eggs... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
