So many people stole the traditional heavy glass mugs in the U.S., you can hardly find the heavy glass frosted mugs there. They have a plastic version. This place had the mugs I remember while growing up. I had just come from lunch, so I was not ready for anything else, but while there, I was reading their signs about... More

We ate at the A&W in the Pacific Centre. It was around $15 (CAD) for two drinks and two egg and bacon English muffins. It was inexpensive and good quality for the price. If you want a no frills cheap breakfast then this place is good.

The food was just average though hot and filling. Enjoyed the root beer. The downtown location is convenient to Waterfront Station. Americans - they do take US dollars but make change in Canadian. This location was not very clean, the bathrooms are down a long hallway and the dirtiest, smelliest I've have the misfortune to encounter in quite a while.... More

I always find their food 'salty'... and I know the nutritionists will shun the place. If you're in a hurry, they are cheap and fast.

You might think this is a funny reason to write a review. I stopped in for a burger with kids while walking through town the day before we left for an Alaska cruise. The burger was good. The kids really liked it. But the thing we all noticed was that the ice water tased better than any have had at... More

If you're coming from the states and looking to have a root beer float from A&W, you might be in for a surprise. Root beer float is NOT on the menu and they only offer it in one size in a plastic cup. I had to ask the guy behind the counter and his reply was "of course, but it's... More

Close to Vancouver Conv. Ctr. Was 1 of only a handful of places that was open late. Good inexpensive burgers with tasty fries. Love the root beer in big frosty mugs.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
