Celebrating New Westminster's 2012 A-List

— image credit:

Welcome to the NewsLeader’s A-List. This summer, we put the call out to readers, in the form of a survey, asking residents to name some of their favourite things in the city. The list includes restaurants - with everything from best place for brunch, best wine list and best place for late night eats - to where to get a great haircut, a deal on a used car, or vintage clothes.

It may not be a precise, scientific survey, but it’s a great way to get a good sense of some of the great businesses that are worth visiting in New Westminster, and some of the great attractions this city has to offer, such as Queen’s Park and the new Westminster Pier Park. If anything, the A-List will help you appreciate the amazing offerings in this city.

Congratulations to all who made this year’s A-List.
