I guess most tourists to Vancouver visit Granville Island and the market, and we were no exception. We went on a Sunday lunchtime, and ended up spending the whole afternoon there. The market was a great collection of food and craft stalls, and it would be hard not to find something to everyone's taste. There was also a mixture of... More

So much to see and experience! Some gift waiting for you! Experience fresh vegetables, flowers, jewellery made, brewery pubs, fishing and pleasure vessels, restaurants of quality food and views. Safe but very limited parking, some pay others only 3 hrs. will tow! hard to find parking and some one should be there at entrance advising people where if any parking... More

We were told to go here by one of the market stall holders - we had breakfast and the Beltch sandwich is the best ever! Basically a BLT with egg and cheese - not at all stodgy, but a great way to start the day and it kept us going for the whole whale watching trip. Coffee was a bit... More

My wife and I started our day at Granville Island here. We had a very good breakfast croissant and an egg breakfast. It is not a fancy place, but the people were very friendly and kitchen was very clean. Seating is limited if it is raining. So grab a table if you see it.

My cousin, Louise, born and raised in Vancouver, knows where to go for the best food! So, off to the Market Grill we went....it is in the large public market building on Granville Island, on the north side (water side) of the building, in the corner. Order up a salmon burger and prepare for the best of your whole trip.... More

We did not get to see enough because of the time and the size. There are many ways to get there from the ferry, bicycle, or car. A good day to spend an afternoon.

Based on a recommendation from 2 False Creek ferry "Captains" we chose the Market Grill for lunch, this is not a fancy sit down kind of place, it's look at the board, order your burger or hot dog and wait for your number to be called. Juicy, grilled bun and tasty from the first to the last bite When we... More

If you go to Granville Island Vancouver, which I do recommend you, especially the food and market corner called "public Market", you have to stop by the Market Grill for a salmon burger.. I hear that they do other great stuff, but the Pacific Code Burger is my favourite.. with a caesar salad! You will have to look for the... More

If you're suffering from a hangover, and you need a greasy breakfast to cure what ales you then head here. They're open earlier than the rest of the market, so you can start your day by chowing down. Otherwise, the food is okay at best.

A basic breakfast choice but done very well, this Grill is located in the Granville Island market which is well worth a visit in its own right. Friendly service and very affordable, the coffee here was among the best I had in BC.
