Not wanting too much for breakfast we walked the half block from the Met to the Hotel Georgia at Howe and Georgia and found seats in the petite Bel Cafe by David Hawksworth. Sausage and egg sandwiches with a latte for Lauren and Americano for me were the start of a pleasant half hour on a holiday Monday. Sandwiches were yummy and the coffee superb amid the reserved bustle of the readers and tablet users in the cafe. No pressure to move on - a great spot to remember.

This is the cafe experience for guests at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. Upscale- reasonable prices and some innovative items ie the toasts with spreads. Tends to be a bit maws cultured ie the asian style salads with some tang and tastes but moderated by British lenses.
I prefer mine straight up as it were BUT- prefer this over a take out elsewhere.

This is an upscale site for a light meal or just a coffee or glass of wine. Much more user friendly and stylish than other offerings in the area,

This little nice cafe is at the Georgia Hotel, downtown Vancouver. Love the chic look of the cafe. It has server services or you can take away. Moca is rich and tasty (even with soy). The shrimp croissant was delicious. The Bel toast is a good snack option for afternoon tea. It is at the expensive end but you are eating downtown Vancouver, can't complain. The service was excellent. The servers are detailed and personal. We mentioned we will share the croissant when we ordered, it came into half in two plates. 5 stars service. The servers are also cute and well groomed. You will enjoy your coffee/tea time here.
