Edible Canada at the Market

Ingredients matter. Edible Canada at the Market, the newest addition to the Granville Island restaurant scene, is a modern casual bistro focusing on BC and Canadian-sourced products. Even more than locality, I believe what makes food special is the love that goes into its creation. My breakfast tasted as though those who created it actually love food.

My Spiced Ricotta Belgian Waffles were divine. Scented with cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with a warm apple compote, it was the perfect Fall dish. My guy had the Island Breakfast including scrambled eggs, duck fat fried hash browns, and Sloping Hills pork sausage and pork belly – the pork was outstanding. Also amazing was his side of toast and jam, an elevated version with artisan bread and locally-produced jam.

If you love food, try it out, just be mindful of what time you arrive, as there are two distinct menus and brunch is served only after 11:00 a.m.

Breakfast menu: 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday/Sunday

I just had coffee there last night with a friend, French press, soooo good, and a reasonable price too. It was tempting to try something off the menu, maybe next time!
