Ace your first dates in Burnaby

Burnaby is a city full of great date ideas. For a first date, opt for somewhere cozy and low-key where you can get to know your online match in person. Going for coffee is a great option here, especially if you pick somewhere like Cafe Divano. With an inviting ambience, tasty food (the chocolate brownie!) and some of B.C.'s best coffee, Cafe Divano is the perfect place to set first date nerves at ease and to let you both relax into each other's company.

If a second date is on the cards, dinner is the classic option. Burnaby has lots of lovely restaurants that can help you dial up the romance but one of the best has to be the divine Pear Tree Restaurant. Their beautiful food, served with creativity and flair is the sort of thing that will keep you talking long after your plates are cleared, while the comfortably elegant setting is the ideal background for a dreamy Burnaby date.

Experience Burnaby's beauty

If you and your date appreciate B.C.'s natural beauty, then make a beeline for Burnaby Mountain. As well as offering spectacular views out over Metro Vancouver, the Mountain is home to some truly stunning gardens and artworks. In summer, visit the Centennial Rose Garden: the beautiful blooms set the scene for heady romance. Art lovers should head for the Kamui Mintara/ Playground of the Gods - this set of sculptures truly comes alive at sunset. 

Another lovely option is Deer Lake Park. The park's winding trails and blue lake are the ideal places to reconnect with nature without leaving the city, while the activities around the park give you lots of options for a fun date. Music lovers should check the schedule for the Festival Lawn, those looking for a little culture should try the Burnaby Art Gallery, and foodies will find heaven at Hart House Restaurant.

Explore Greater Vancouver

If you're dating in Burnaby, you're ideally placed for exploring Greater Vancouver. Adventure lovers should try heading up past North Vancouver to Grouse Mountain for an exhilarating day of skiing (or summer hiking), while the Capilano Suspension Bridge is an amazing place to enjoy some thrilling tree top and river views. Beautiful at any time of year, the bridge and canyon are especially charming on winter nights when they're ablaze with festive lights.

If you don't feel like the drive, then try exploring Vancouver with the help of our SkyTrain date map. We've picked a great date idea with walking distance of every SkyTrain stop: stay in Burnaby and head to Royal Oak for tea at Camellia, go south to Scott Road and try Surrey dating ideas (like a beer at Central City Brewers), or ride into Vancouver, to Stadium-Chinatown for Revel Room cocktails and great live music.
