About Bel Café
Situated in the hub of Vancouver’s business and shopping district, David Hawksworth’s Bel Café combines expertly prepared food and beverages with intelligent and friendly service in an inviting, elegant and chic setting. Full table service is provided alongside a selection of ‘ready to go’ items featuring fresh baked pastries, gourmet sandwiches, nourishing soups, delicate tarts and exquisite jewel-toned macarons. Specialty coffees are custom roasted locally by 49th Parallel and served by a team of highly trained baristas. Artisan teas, fresh juices, house cocktails and select wines are also featured.
The Beverage Program
Bel Café has partnered with 49th Parallel Roasters – not only one of the most respected roasters in the world, but a local fixture – to offer delicious and aromatic custom!blends.
The staple of 49th Parallel’s offering at Bel Cafe will be the Hawksworth Epic Espresso. Focusing on seasonality, the blend will change subtly throughout the year – fresh coffees bring new nuances, but the focus is to maintain a balance of acidity and a delicate sweetness.
SPOT Tea is a Vancouver-based company that embraces the contemporary lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest. By offering a modern take on traditional tea and tisanes, SPOT Tea is a perfect addition to the Bel Café family. SPOT Tea’s line at Bel Café is a well-edited collection to include something for everyone, with each blend being named to reflect its individual personality.
At Bel Café, guests can enjoy the ambiance of a casual and chic European café; rich dark wood paneling; zinc service counters and table tops; honed black granite floors and classic leather upholstery play off of sleek menu boards suspended from the ceiling and a shiny high tech Mirage espresso machine by Kees van der Westen. A range of gourmet delights can be temptingly viewed through climate controlled glass display cases.
Fashioned from chromed ribbons of aluminum, reminiscent of spun sugar, Bel’s one-of-a-kind chandelier complements custom wallpaper in a palette of muted tones that reflect the soothing elegance and whimsy aesthetic of Bel. With careful attention to detail and use of quality materials, locally lauded Evoke International Design have created a gift-wrapped fanciful room that seamlessly blends its heritage roots with the vibrancy of its downtown setting and contemporary exceptional offerings.
