When the new Cactus Club Café opened its doors in Station Square in 2019, it included a few menu items you couldn’t find at any other Cactus Club. It also came with an elegant new look that topped any other CCC I had been too before.
That’s two reasons why I’m so excited a new Cactus Club will be opening in spring 2020 in North Burnaby.
The Amazing Brentwood will be adding a brand-spanking Cactus Club that will take the mall to another level. I grew up just blocks from the old Brentwood and it was a food desert.
Things are shaping up to put the “amazing” in Amazing Brentwood.
The Amazing Brentwood is still under construction, but many new shops are coming online every month, including Sporting Life. It appears the Cactus Club will face into a new courtyard that is being built that will add a walkability factor to the mall.
It’s unclear what is going to happen to the other Cactus Club that’s located just west of the mall on Lougheed Highway, although the older CC outlet on Kingsway hasn’t closed yet despite the opening of the Station Square location across the street. It all depends on the leasing arrangements.
I love independent restaurants, but Cactus Club is still an occasional go-to eatery for certain cravings. I still think they have the best poke bowl and their steaks are far superior to many other restaurants.
