Good public space in a city is essential to building community.
Located at the corner of Blanshard and Fort, a beautifully restored courtyard is the perfect place to grab a quick bite or stop for a chat with friends.
Open from May to September, access to the courtyard is down an alley between Be Love Restaurant and Starbucks, and a secondary entrance on Broughton, next to Discovery Coffee.
Backing out onto the square are a number of spots (Yalla, Chorizo & Co, Fishhook, Belove & Discovery) to grab lunch while you enjoy the patio. There is ample seating and umbrellas for shade.
The spot is tucked away and peaceful yet still right in the heart of the city.
