Kid Approved Eats in Surrey, Delta & White Rock


Starting the day with a nosh? Five Corners Café in White Rock offers diner style breakfasts with back-to-basic classics appealing to all ages. Just up the road, check out the Wooden Spoon Co, offering brunch and bistro options paired with carefully crafted cocktails. Sounding rather grown up? The littles will love the dedicated play area while parents brunch!


When midday hits, many kids love a good old fashioned grilled cheese. There are some amazing options for ooey-gooey melted cheese while also satiating an adult palate. Newmans Fine Foods at Tsawwassen Springs serves up a wide range of hearty home style sandwiches. Try The Carvery Sandwich Shop in Surrey for an internationally inspired menu with favourites from around the globe like the panini, French dip, Reuben and Cubano.

Check out the Healthy Monkey Café, with a cheap and cheerful menu full of clean eats, featuring smoothies, soups, salads and burgers. With five locations in Surrey and Langley, it’s the perfect place to grab a healthy lunch on the go.


As the dinner hour rolls around, indulge in a delicious chowder or fish & chips at one of the many beautiful beaches. Enjoy scenic waterfront views from Hooked Fish Bar in Crescent Beach; take it to-go and eat on the beach or lounge on the patio. The iconic Moby Dick on White Rock’s East Beach offers generous portions of fresh fish & chips in a charming space crammed with curios and collectibles.

Another great South Surrey option is the funky Roadhouse Grille, an homage to old school eateries in the style of Route 66 with home cooked comfort foods like bacon wrapped meatloaf, lasagna and prime rib with yorkshires. For a fun BBQ joint try The Dancing Pig in Ladner, with eclectic décor and a reasonably priced kids’ menu. The main highlight will undoubtedly be doing chalk art directly on the wipeable tabletops. Or pop into Italian inspired Mario’s Kitchen in Tsawwassen. Find a delightfully upscale and cozy space that welcomes families, with a kids’ menu full of healthy choices.
