Best Kept Secret: Maple Ridge’s Hidden Restaurants

Share Article

Maple Ridge is known for its vast and extravagant nature scene but after exploring outside you will need to grab a bite to eat.

Amongst the many food neighbourhoods in Maple Ridge, there are more than a few hidden gem restaurants that you must try.

While we’ve previously written about the best coffee shops in Maple Ridge that are considered hidden gems, sometimes a cup of joe just doesn’t cut it, and you need something substantial. Whether you’re looking for a restaurant that will wow your friends, or just your next best comfort-food joint, here are some must try restaurants in Maple Ridge.

Sunflower Cafe

The delicious food, outdoor seating in the quiet countryside, and friendly staff make this a perfect destination for brunch. It will be a definite hit with the family, especially with the gazebo booth providing a touch of privacy. Well worth the trip!

Paliotti’s Westside

Hands down some of the best vegan food in Maple Ridge. Not only is this food incredible and will have you coming back for more but the staff is very welcoming and considerate. Don’t worry it isn’t just a vegan restaurant, they have options for everyone with a huge menu.

Taco Fan

Some of the most authentic Mexican food around. This place will not disappoint! The staff is very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The portions are perfect and the prices are very reasonable, but what makes this place really shine is the quality of the food. The fresh ingredients and perfect spice/seasoning are on point.

Me n Ed’s Pizza

Not your average pizza parlor! A lot of people tend to stick to chain pizza restaurants, I myself think Me n Ed’s is very different but in a good way! The pizza is incredible (especially the pierogi pizza). The pizzas are thin crispy crust loaded with toppings. The staff is always great and it is locally owned and ran!


One of the newest restaurants in Maple Ridge but definitely a must try. Especially if you like Chipotle or Mucho Burrito, it is kind of like that but better! It’s greta if you would just like to grab a quick bite to eat that is very filling!
