There's a little coffee shop just inside the convention centre. We stopped one morning and had coffee and scones, which were excellent.

This is located opposite Canada Place and right at the waterfront. The glass on this building actually reflects the image of Canads Place. There are restaurants and cafes here. Also a good place to catch the setting sun.
