September is treating us to more summery weather, so take a trip up to Burnaby Heights for some nostalgic treats. Glenburn Soda Fountain has old school charm and fresh local ingredients going into their classic creations. As one of the 10 best ice cream spots in Vancouver, Glenburn is like no other.
Ron and Roberta LaQuaglia’s vision was to recreate the kind of place you’d find on a main street in a small town, circa the 1940’s. It’s safe to say they nailed it. The shop is a joyful throwback to the old days of Burnaby Heights, which was home to the namesake Glenburn Dairy back then.
Sodas, malts, floats, egg creams and sundaes are made-to-order and crafted from Birchwood Dairy ice cream, local fruit and sauces made in-house. They’ll even scoop ice cream that’s vegan and gluten free.
Whether you think you were born in the wrong decade or you simply appreciate a sundae done right, Glenburn Soda Fountain is a pleasant place for all ages and all eras.
