Granville Island Restaurants


There are many restaurants and food stands on Granville Island. This list will help guide you to the best of the best!


Quick Gourmet Lunches


Business owners and island workers often visit The Stock Market for a wholesome bowl of soup.  The soups are made daily, with ingredients from the market, and are always served with a slice of fresh bread.


La Baguette et L'Echalote is a romantic bakery offering a selection of quiches and sandwiches, prepared each morning.  Freshly baked croissants or baguettes stuffed with French cheese and fine meats make for a satisfying lunch.  If you like sweets, les petites pain au chocolat (chocolate filled croissants) are also well worth trying.


Those seeking a hearty, home-style lunch will find what they are looking for at Laurelle's Fine Foods.  Laurelle offers homemade classics like shepherd's pie and lasagna at refreshingly reasonable prices.  For dessert, choose from a beautiful assortment of cookies and squares.


The ambitious among us might also consider a five minute walk west (away from downtown) along the seawall to Go Fish!  This busy stand offers amazing scallop sandwiches, fish tacos and fish & chips.  Located across from the fishermen's wharf, they buy their seafood directly from the boats and cook it on the spot.




Even if the food wasn't so delicious, Vancouverites would be tempted by Bridges Restaurant because it has the city's best patio.  Dine on gourmet salads, meat and seafood dishes while watching the boats go by.


The Sandbar Seafood Restaurant is known for its cocktails, wines and seafood.  This is excellent choice for perfectly prepared spot prawns, Qualicum Bay scallops and sablefish.  Check their fresh list to see what's in season.  Sandbar is also a popular choice for the cocktail crowd due to its lively atmosphere, water views, heated patio and tasty drinks.


The Inside Story


So much goes on behind the scenes in the Public Market.  From secret romances to life-saving organ donations, the merchants have shared their best stories in the Granville Island Book.  These stories are personal enough to make locals cry; and we guarantee you'll enjoy your visit if you read it before you go!
