When it comes to staying fuelled throughout a long day of shopping, there’s no place better equipped than West Van’s Park Royal
The old adage goes “shop ‘til you drop” but Metro Vancouver’s premiere shopping centre has gone to great lengths to keep that from happening. With seemingly endless culinary options—ranging from charming cafes to full sit down menus—Park Royal promises to keep you energized throughout even the most strenuous shopping days.
When it comes to keeping caffeinated, you really can’t go wrong. Enjoy a European cappuccino at Faubourg, a quiet break at Eve Café in Simons, or grab a latte from the Starbucks, Caffé Artigiano, Second Cup and Delany’s locations that speckle the indoor/outdoor complex.
Park Royal’s food court is called PICNIC—and fittingly so. A range of healthy options (think: freshii, Rocky Mountain Flatbread and Booster Juice) will keep you well nourished all day long, or go ahead and indulge at your favourite fast food spot.
If you’re in need of a mental break and a bit of fresh air, fill a to-go box at Whole Foods Market and wander down to Ambleside Beach. Just a ten-minute walk away on the Spirit Trail, this spectacular view is sure to help you reset—and with Loblaws City Market arriving later this year, your takeout options are growing.
Whether you’re catching up with friends, meeting someone special, or rewarding yourself for accomplishing a long shopping list, Park Royal’s restaurants are an obvious choice. Enjoy the newly renovated Milestones, The Village Taphouse or Cactus Club in the Village or try White Spot, Nando’s or Trattoria/Italian Kitchen in the new East Village where a brand-new Keg location will open by late 2016. And the best part is, they all have patios!Stop by on Saturday, July 9 for Taste of Park Royal, where a dozen or more food vendors will be offering delicious free samples in Park Royal South. Virgin Radio will be broadcasting live on site as Park Royal transforms into a genuine food tour.
