Visiting the market, we headed to the Grill for breakfast. It's tucked back in a corner, with a common shared table area, with other food vendors. Simple breakfast fare; eggs, sausage taters and toast. Reasonably priced, this is a good spot when in the market.

Saw other reviews about their breakfast sandwiches and thought I'd try them out. Ordered the Island Breakfast sandwich, which was 2 scrambled eggs with parmesan cheese on a croissant, which seemed pretty basic (about 7.95 Canadian). Seemed like it took a long time to get it, but then when it was ready it seemed like they had just baked the... More

We tried this place twice, in July and October. We liked it just as much both times, so I decided to sit down and write a review. This time around we tried the Hawaiian burger and the Black and Blue, both with fries. The fries are real potatoes, with skins, and really nicely done. The burgers were juicy and quite... More

It's a grill. They make typical breakfasts -- eggs and stuff -- but not that special. The setting is -- fun to eat breakfast on Granville Island, but we'd try some other, more inventive places.

For the past 7 years we have always made a point to eat here and it never disappoints. The burgers are also very good.

Went to Granville island early to beat the crowds which worked well with a first stop at the market grill for breakfast which was a great choice. Had the omelettes ( with choice of fill) - ample helpings and plenty of toast. No frills but really good food and pretty good value. Thoroughly enjoyed it

The beef is purchased daily in the market, the buns are home made and the mayo is made on the right there! This is the only place I'll eat a veggie burger...the best!

Neighbourhood 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.
