Prospect Point Cafe
Spending the day touring around Stanley Park is bound to work up appetites. Built on the historic park's lookout, this popular and long-standing cafe offers incredible views of the city, mountains and ocean. It also houses a gift shop and patio dining. Seafood is a highlight on the menu - enjoy salmon dishes (Bamboo Steamed Salmon Fillet) or try the Drunken Prawns sauteed with Brandy, Garlic, Cream and Chives. The brunch menu offers fresh fruit salads and light pasta dishes.
This is not the cafe, but self serve express/grill restaurant. We ordered veggie burgers , salmon burger and regular burgers. It was a disappointing experience. The only decent item was the salmon burger. It was actually a piece of salmon. I wanted a chicken burger, but it was fried and breaded not grilled so two of us decided on the veggie burger. It was the only veggie burger I have ever had that I could not eat. The burgers also were not well received. The fries were good and a generous portion, but thumbs down on the food at the grill. The prices are hefty for fast food and for the price decent food is the expectation. I would not eat there again.
Prospect Point an oasis in Stanley Park with something for everyone
By A Yahoo Contributor, 2/9/06
I recently visited the Prospect Point Lookout in Stanely Park with my wife Cherie and our lab. We hiked the trails up from the seawall which were the most challenging in the park - a terrific workout. After that, we needed to rest, and discovered that the Prospect Point Cafe also opened up a new Lions Gate Bar perched on the cliff overlooking the Lions Gate Bridge. We had a few appies, drinks and then the Wild Salmon Sampler with 5 different salmons strips (Pesto, Ginger/Garlic, simply grilled, teriyaki and maple glazed) and it was divine. Turned out to be the highlight of our park visit. As if that wasn't enough, we then discovered the new Fudge Factory that they recently opened. We sampled many but ended up buying a 1/2 pound of pralines & cream, both our favourites. We shopped a bit in the beautiful store and trading post, bought some ice wine tea, which we ended up drinking that evening (and it was delicious)... and needless to say our walk was over. We got on a double decker bus and rode out of the park, but had a lovely time at Prospect Point. Highly recommended.
Prospect Point the perfect Stanley Park destination for the family

The Cafe situated at the world famous Prospect Point Lookout is the perfect place to dine while visiting Stanley Park. The only casual dining place in Stanley Park, the cafe offers terrific westcoast cuisine and very reasonable prices, and a magnificent new Lions Gate Bar and Grill overlooking the Lions Gate Bridge, the North Shore Mountains and the Burrard Inlet. There's a beautiful Trading Post where you can find almost anything including indian carvings, gifts and souvenirs, unique Canadiana gemstones and jewelry, clothing and many other unique artifacts. There is also a carving demonstration where renowned first nations artists carve cedar totem poles, live music and, of course, Prospect Point's World Famous Ice Cream. This place is fantastic and a must-visit for all coming to Vancouver and Stanley Park.
