610 Pipeline Road, Stanley Park, Vancouver
Advice: Takes reservations, walkins welcome. Open daily, seasonal hours.
Located in the middle of Stanley Park, next to the Stanley Park Pavilion, this is a great spot for lunch or dinner when visiting the park. I sat on their outside patio which is large with 200 seats, and this is the place you are going to want to sit in the summer.
The lunch menu is far more extensive than the dinner menu, I started off with the Crispy Chicken Tenders ($14) free-run chicken, Next Jen gluten-free breaded to order and honey mustard; next was the Stanley Park Poutine ($13) with miso mushroom gravy, cheese curds, and scallion. I loved the Summer Tomato Soup ($9) with Grilled Cheese ($5) on the side, charred BC Hothouse Tomatoes, fresh herbs and olive oil; as well the Salmon Clubhouse ($19) was filled with fresh local salmon, bacon, avocado, bbq sauce, and coleslaw, served with onion rings on the side.
The menu is filled with starters, big salads, signature mains, soups, handhelds along with a menu for the kids as well as a Golden Age menu for guests 65 + at attractive prices.
