We had breakfast here (I highly recommend the croissant breakfast sandwich with a side of hash browns). But bring cash, they take no credit cards! There are a lot of places to eat in the market, this place came highly recommended and they didn't disappoint. Food was delicious and prices were reasonable.

Everything looked great, but I just couldn't wait to enjoy some Poutine, since it's nearly impossible to find it here in The States. Yum! I ate al fresco on the steps overlooking the creek on a beautiful summer day. Hit the spot!

Standard eggs, sausage and toast but kind of small portion sizes. The hash browns are the pre-done kind you can buy yourself and put in the toaster, that was very disappointing. If you can make salsa from scratch (which my wife said was awesome) can't you shred some potatoes and cook them so that everything is fresh made? My wife... More

Very nice Waffle with Bacon. Took a few minutes to get ready but they told me that and it meant the waffle was fresh and hot. The potato cakes were also very good. Seating is crowded and not the clean but its the market area at Granville Island so not unexpected. Share a table with someone if you need to.

The market at Granville Island is fabulous. It is quite large and there is usually parking to be found. There are so many varied shops here it's hard to describe: lots of good food, great artisan shops, galleries, spots to sit and watch the boats go by, street entertainers, etc. This is a spot that you must visit if you...

In the Public Market along with numerous other places and vendors. I ordered a California Burger and fries and it was great. You place your order find a seat and they yell out your number when it is ready. Hit the spot.

Neighborhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
