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.
