Glenburn Soda Fountain & Confectionary


I love finding great eateries in lesser known areas. Lucky for me who rides the bus to school everyday, I've come to find quite a few special places along Hastings street, Glenburn Soda Fountain included. This place screams vintage from the classic bar to the bottled pop they serve. Even their soda fountain is real and dates back to the 30s! It's a family run business which features the cutest cashier ever. She's the owner's 10 year old daughter who works the cashier like a pro.  Anyways, let's get on with the food.

We got the special of the day: the Golden Glow- hot fudge and butterscotch sauces on vanilla ice cream with whipped cream, walnuts, and butterscotch drizzle. If that doesn't make you drool, I don't know what will. It's the perfect combination of hot and cold, creamy and crunchy, sweet and sweeter with a cherry on top. I don't think I've ever had a better and more unique sundae before. Their menus changes often but by the looks of it, everything they serve here is consistently good.

My friend and I actually visited on the day that CTV Vancouver was filming a scoop at the store so guess what, yepp, my friend and I are hidden in this news snippet! They even filmed our sundae and us along with it but I guess I was way too shy when they filmed to have my close up broadcasted :$


Service: 10/10 (Friendly people everywhere. The owners and their daughter are ever so sweet and they always make sure you like what you're ordering.)

Atmosphere: 9.5/10 (Great decor. Everything flows with the vintage theme, even their outfits match!)

Price/affordability: 8/10 (Not a steal but I feel like the price justifies the quality of the food.)

Would I go back/recommend this place?: YES. If you haven't been to Glenburn, you need to get your butt there now! :D
