Location: 4090 Hastings Street, Burnaby
There’s plenty of ice-cream shops that have popped up in Vancouver this year. But this place is not your typical ice-cream shop. In fact, it’s not just an ice-cream shop. Glenburn has been a long standing store known for soda fountains and other things sweet.
Decor in here gives it a dated atmosphere. It feels like you’re almost travelling back in time to the old days. There’s love in this place as you browse around. You can pick from sodas, cones, milkshakes, floats, malts, egg cream, and the list goes on!!
My fiancée and I came on a rather chilly afternoon. For some reason, yes, we like to eat ice-cream on rainy and cold days for some reason. The good thing about that is it’s not over-crowded. Since we finished lunch not too long ago, we decided to get a small sundae to share. It’s topped with whipped cream, walnuts, hot fudge (but you get to pick from a selection), and a cherry on top. Looking at first, I thought this was going to be a sweet bomb but it turned out to be a balanced sweetness to it. Whipped cream was freshly whipped, not sweet at all. The hot fudge was warm to the mouth. Overall, loved it!
Will definitely be back to try more things from the menu.
