Eat/Shop: Holts Café

The perfect pairing!   It’s all about convenience at…holts3

I mean really; what could be better than shopping and eating? And gone are the days of grabbing some french fries with gravy at a department store counter when you felt a bit faint or overwhelmed by too many buying decisions. Has anyone else ever done this before?


But when the shopping gets to be too much Vancouverites can tough it out at the new Holts Café located conveniently inside our elegant Holt Renfrew department store.  Vancouver now joins the Toronto Bloor Street location and Yorkdale Mall, Edmonton and Montreal stores in offering an ideal setting for everything from a business lunch to a mid-afternoon shopping break.

We have a shopping concierge too – to point you in the right direction (as if you need to be told where to go).

The café offers friendly service and menus filled with culinary delights.  They also have a fine brunch and High Tea (always a favourite).  Catering services are also available at all locations.  I think pretty much they have it all.  One-stop shopping…and eating.holts1holts2
