The Pear Tree 1 After more than 20 years, the Pear Tree is still regularly named the best restaurant in Burnaby and attracts both locals and foodies from farther afield. Award-winning chef Scott Jaeger focuses on local, organic and sustainable ingredients, and o ers both familiar favourites and more adventurous options, from 30-hour-braised beef cheek with potato roulade to panroasted Lois Lake steelhead trout with pommes dauphine and butternut squash. Chez Christophe 2 For those with a sweeter tooth, award-winning Swiss-trained pastry chef and chocolatier Christophe Bonzon—also the former executive pastry chef at CinCin—brings his exquisite creations to Burnaby Heights, treating locals to double-baked croissants with pecan maple syrup, elegant tru les, tarte au citron and more.
Glenburn Soda Fountain and Confectionery 3 Ice cream lovers can step back in time at the Glenburn Soda Fountain, which opened in 2013, but the vibe feels like more like 1953. Ice cream cones, sundaes, milkshakes and malts are all made with local ice cream from Birchwood Dairy in Abbotsford, while nostalgic toys, treats and decor round out the vintage experience.
