Prospect Point Cafe & Grill

Burgers in Downtown & West End

Recently acquired by new owners and already being elevated with renovations and a revamped menu (including smoke pulled pork poutine), the coffee shop, ice-cream station and sit-down grill here all rest on one unassailable draw: the vistas of the dense Stanley Park forest and the twinkling shoreline unfurling below. If you have time, take the steps down the cliffside for even better views.

Area racoons have also noticed the surfeit of dining opportunities here; don't feed them or they'll likely follow you back to your hotel, board your plane with you and expect to be fed in your kitchen for the rest of their lives.
