OK, so I can’t help but mention the absolute closest restaurant to Capilano Suspension Bridge – but this isn’t just for lazy guests made weak by the Vancouver summer heat.

This terraced restaurant (with a view of the raging Capilano river below) specializes in West Coast classics and it’s a great place to try Oceanwise local seafood, Vancouver craft beer, and a great house burger.

If you’ve listened to me and scheduled the best time of day to visit Capilano Suspension Bridge, you can also take advantage of a tasty brunch menu as well.

If you’re wary of meat-heavy brunch menus and looking for a great vegetarian/vegan restaurant look no further than Kokomo, Vancouver’s best kept secret (their words, not mine but I almost agree!).

Just a 2 minute drive from Capilano Suspension Bridge you can load up on nourishing plant-based bowls, smoothies, and salads – though my favourite is the golden laska noodles with saffron coconut broth.

The hemp caesar salad is another winner here, a testament to their healthy creativity.

I’m a sucker for a Neapolitan-style pizza pie and this fantastic pizzeria, one of only three restaurants in the city with VPN certification (Vera Pizza Napolitana), never fails to deliver.

Every time I come here I’m taken back to the time I lived in Italy for a year: whether it’s via their deliciously simple pizza diavola with calabrese salami or any of their pasta dishes, especially their spaghetti carbonara.

Their happy hour menu with $8 spritzes and $14 margherita pizzas is the way to wait out the bridge traffic on the way back to downtown Vancouver.

Nevermind being close to Capilano Suspension Bridge, this is one of the best restaurants in Vancouver overall.

If you’re looking for a laid-back spot that you can have a few beers then this is the best restaurant near Capilano Suspension Bridge.

In all, the pub-style menu made with locally sourced ingredients is a great spot for nachos, roast beef, and ribs. If I’m visiting as part of a Vancouver itinerary I’m getting the sockeye salmon burger.

If you’re booking your Capilano Suspension Bridge tickets (it’s mandatory to select a slot) for a Thursday you can even take advantage of their live music sessions.

Readers with a sweet tooth I haven’t forgotten about you! If you’ve ever wanted to eat at the cafe of a master chocolatier then look no further than Thomas Haas.

Especially if you’re going for an early visit, stopping in here for a coffee and double baked almond croissant is as decadent a start to the day as humanly possible – in fact this is one of the best breakfast restaurants in Vancouver.

They’ve also got all sorts of coffee-accompanying cakes like matcha yuzu, tiramisu, and vanilla creme brulee.

Buying Tickets Before the Restaurants

Whether you’re stopping at Capilano Bridge restaurants or not, you should be booking in advance online – especially in Vancouver in summer.

As you can see above, showing up without tickets means you could be showing up when tickets are already sold out.

In this case, as entrances are limited to create less wear and not overload the bridge, you could be asked to come back to a later time slot – or another day altogether.

Always book in advance to lock in your spots.
