City Square is a fairly exclusive mall situated in the center of Vancouver. It has a variety of shops and is a nice place to stop in for a coffee and dessert.
They offer free wireless Internet:
WiFi SSID = "CITYSQUARE"
What to buy: It has a special significance for me because the mall now sits where I went to Kindergarten. And rather than just knocking down the original greystone building, they incorporated many of the original walls, inserting a glass roof and many windows.
If you want a coffee try the "Milieu Cafe Moderne" upstairs. They offer really good coffee and great seating that provides a good view of the mall.
