Lunch time doesn't have to be boring or fast dull food anymore thanks to the Cactus Club Cafe.  When walking into the restaurant, be sure to take notice of the art deco and paintings on the walls. Paired up with the black leather and rich red accents, the restaurant is classy all the way around. The Cactus Club has a very well stocked wine list so be sure to try one of the great selections from British Columbia like NK'Mip Cellars. Of course if alcohol isn't your thing, they also have a good selection of non alcoholic beverages. I recommend the Virgin Caesar. It's spicy, tangy and is adorned with boccocini, olive, hot pepper and caramelized onion on a skewer.

Appetizers are always a great way to kick off your dining experience. I recommend the Rob's Goat Cheese and Feta Flatbread. This is bruchetta taken to the max. With peppery arugula, pesto, grape tomatoes, caramelized onions with a balsamic glaze and maldon sea salt; it is sure to be a hit everyone.

Their main courses are as diverse as the citizens of British Columbia. From steaks, to gluten and vegetarian and from chicken to seafood.  For the chicken lovers, I recommend the Blackened Creole Chicken. A beautiful presentation with a butter flied chicken breast topped over seasonal vegetables mashed potatoes and a dollop of spicy Creole butter. Spicy, juicy and filling. For the real adventurers in dining, the BBQ Duck Clubhouse is right up your bungee cord! Luscious duck cooked to perfection is paired with pan seared chicken, prosciutto and toasted pecan fruit bread. Served with your choice of fries, Caesar salad or yam fries, it's a delicacy that screams 'order again.

Once you have finished your incredible meals, and you have managed to save some room for dessert. I suggest going all the way and trying their Key Lime Pie. Not only is it refreshing but the tart and sweet flavours marry into a slice of southern heaven. The wait staff is attentive, friendly and very welcoming. It can be a little loud towards the bar area and they do have 3 TV screens to catch your favourite game while enjoying a drink.

With 12 locations in British Columbia and 2 in Alberta, the Cactus Club is waiting for your visit. Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
