If you have been to Granville Island you probably have seen this spot. Deep in the corner of the Granville Island market sits this kiosk/cafe with the name A LA MODE. I have eaten here many times, I used to order the beef stew or the seafood chowder but I usually leave a little hungry, the one pie doesn't fill my skinny body.

I ordered the turkey mushroom pot pie ($7.95)with a small salad with vinegrette dressing. I broke open the pie and filling inside was basically soup. It was too thin and not hearty enough to label itself a pot pie. Here I was eating a sad meal with my granville Island Tea Company tea and looking at my normal eating spot, the Market Grill. Dam I wish I got a burger. However, I can attest to their sweet pies, the boston cream and the lemon meringue pie are both really good.

In Granville Island, I really only eat at two places. Go Fish down on the warf or the Market Grill for a burger. There are some other fish and chips joint but they are a little pricey and that Keg could use an update.

try the schnitzel at the german sandwhich/smokies shop. fresh around 11 am. ask for the veggies with the saurkraut. pretty decent if you get the right sandwhich artist.

The puff on the pastry looks incredible but I guess it's hard to judge a pot pie by it's cover. Have been intending to go there to see if it's any good. Love Go Fish. Nice oyster tacones and incredible fries.
