After walking from Vancouver to Granville Island we where ready for a great meal and Pie A La Mode in the Public Markets didn't disappoint! I ordered the clam chowder and it was delicious. The pastry top makes the dish even more filling. The chowder itself was heaven, not your usual stodgy type but light and filling at the same... More

這天來到Granville Island,又不是太肚餓,便簡單order一個酥皮湯. 酥皮湯的酥皮很香,很厚,湯內裏的料子又多,只可惜湯有點淡,如濃一點的cream就會perfect. 一邊品著酥皮湯,一邊望著Granville Island的遊艇碼頭景色,真的超美.

In the Granville Public Markets is this shop. Try the pots pies and you will enjoy a great meal. We tried the Clam Chowder and Mushroom Pit Pies and would repeat the experience again. Seating a little hard to find, so share a table as this is normal.

Everything on the menu at A La Mode is terrific but my favorite was the beef shepherd's pie! My husband like the french onion. Terrific place for lunch!

Though the shortage of seating space is an issue I really love the food here. It's the ideal lunch - good wholesome, handmade pies. Delicious.

We had the salmon chowder. It was so amazing. Too bad they didn't fill it to the brim but it was so delicious with big chunks of salmon. Just right for a chilly day. We brought ours outside and ate it while people watching.

This is a small eatery inside the market building, facing the Aqua Bus , Granville Island. Pleasant ladies behind the counter. If it were possible to take some pies back to the states I would have done it! Absolutely the best pot pie we ever had.

They offer a variety of pot pies freshly baked which are satisfying and irresistible! I had chicken pot pie and my husband had clam chowder pot pie. They place a flaky crust on top with delicious filling underneath! It was so yummy! They also have a nice variety of deserts!

Awesome!! I've been to the pier in Boston, and that's the best I've ever had in terms of straight up chowder. BUT...A la mode's is better because of the pastry on top. It's a must have in Vancouver. Go. Just. Go.

I love going to A La Mode for French Onion soup every time I go to Granville Island. The pastry is light and flavourful and the soup is perfect. I go to A La Mode multiple times on each trip to Vancouver.

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.
