Dockside Restaurant – Breakfast
First off, let me just say that I really like Dockside Restaurant in Granville Island. The food’s usually great and the service is super. Just take a look at my last few posts here: Dockside Restaurant, Dockside Restaurant Revisit – Mussels and Lamb.
Well, we haven’t been back for a number of months so we figured we’d drop by for an early lunch and then wander a bit around Granville Island. In the past, we’ve been to Dockside before 11:30am and didn’t have a problem ordering lunch. Our other usual Granville Island favourite (The Sandbar) doesn’t open until 11:30.
On our most recent visit, we came by around 11am and were given their breakfast menu. Don’t get me wrong, I like breakfast… it’s just not what I was in the mood for this morning. We asked when the lunch menu started and our waitress said 11:30. I could have sworn we’ve had lunch here before 11:30am in the past.
Anyhoo, we decided to make the best out of the situation and ordered some small elevenses items including the Bagel and Lox and Fresh Fruit Cup. I enjoyed the classic saltiness of the capers contrasted to the sharp red onions and the smooth and creamy cream cheese.
The fruit cup came with raspberries, apple pieces, melon chunks, and pineapple. They had some other interesting breakfast items like their omlettes and Huevos Rancheros but we didn’t want anything too heavy since we decided that after our small repast, we would head over to The Sandbar for the lunch that we were looking for.
Food: 4 / 5
Service: 3.5 / 5 (service was fine but it would have been better if we were able to have lunch instead of breakfast)
