Well incase you haven’t noticed…it’s finally arrived, patio season that is. The masses spend three quarters of the year waiting to sit outside and enjoy a meal while appreciating the gorgeous summer weather that BC has to offer. I wanted to share some of my favourite patio’s around the Fraser Valley. I’ve got options for beer lovers, burger lovers, appreciators of good tapas and the ones who are in it for the scenery – I suggest popping by all five!
Sandpiper – Clubhouse
The Sandpiper golf course is the home of the clubhouse restaurant, which has been named “the perfect patio”. This little gem is located on the edge of the Harrison River with a beautiful view. They also have the best VQA wine pairings.

Match has a few great locations in the Fraser Valley area but our favorite is the Langley location. It has a beautiful outdoor space with an outdoor bar, lounge patio and regular dining tables. It’s an upbeat environment with great cocktails! If you make it here you have to try the “wok this way lettuce wraps” the name is great, and so are they!
20393 Fraser Hwy, Langley, BC V3A, Canada
Fieldhouse Brewing Co.
While this isn’t a conventional patio, it sure is cute! This abbotsford brewing company has a really clean picturesque interior and a beautiful grassy outdoors space with lounge chairs and picnic benches. Grab a beer, sit under the twinkle lights and enjoy the scenery. PS. the beer is great!
2281 W Railway St, Abbotsford, BC V2S 2E3, Canada
If you find yourself in Maple Ridge, and want a gorgeous view of the Fraser River, I’ve found your perfect spot. The Kingfishers pub sits on the water’s edge overlooking on of BC’s most beautiful bodies of water. They often have great live bands so it can get pretty busy, but it’s worth it! If you have a chance to swing by, be sure to try their scotch egg.
23840 River Rd. Maple Ridge, BC, Canada
Wendel’s Bookstore & Cafe
This cute little spot is exactly how it sounds, a quaint little bookstore with a great cafe. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in a relaxed setting with great people watching. Stop by, have a mellow lunch outside and head in to grab a new book! Wendel’s is a great one stop-shop!
9233 Glover Rd, Langley, BC V1M 2S5
