The Best Fort Langley Patios

Beatniks Bistro

Beatniks Bistro in Fort Langley has been a staple in the heart of the Fort for almost 100 years. What started out as the Moorhouse residence in 1933, Beatniks is one of the oldest buildings in Fort Langley.

The Choquette family transformed the little house into a neighbourhood gathering center, where good food, excellent service, and live music and events brought the house into a home, welcoming visitors and locals to experience Fort Langley. 

What I love the most about this patio is the location right on the main street of Fort Langley, sun-drenched and perfect for watching the visitors go by, the location and the food make this the perfect patio to visit in Fort Langley on a nice day! Click here for details.

Google review: “Great outdoor patio, in a picturesque little town. Had the French toast which was excellent and our server was super friendly and efficient. Great summer patio spot.” – Terry M.

Mangia e Scappa

When the question was posed in a local Facebook group, “What is the best patio in Langley?” a lot of local residents were quick to recommend Mangia e Scappa. The Trattoria (restaurant) is touted as “Small Village Italian Food.” Regulars love the authentic Italian experience while dining on high-quality Italian meals made with Chefs from Venice, Bologna, and Roma. 

Their patio and piazza (outdoor courtyard) are southern facing, inviting guests to come and experience lunch, dinner, Italian cocktails, as well as my favourite, weekend brunch! 

This small, locally owned and operated business is a great place to experience authentic cuisine, sip on a cup of Sicillian Coffe, or visit the Mercato to stock up on some ingredients for your own kitchen. Click here for details.

Google review: “Delicious! We visited this restaurant a couple of times. Each time we had a different dish. Each time was a blessing! Absolutely coming back whenever we are in the mood for high-quality meals.” – Yanina V.

Trading Post Brewing, Fort Langley Eatery

If you haven’t heard of the Fried Chicken Sandwich at Trading Post, let me warn you that this is a legendary meal that has a reputation all on its own. “Crispy buttermilk marinated rossdown chicken, crunchy slaw, chipotle mayo, b&b pickles, tomato, on a brioche bun.” this is one of the amazing meals you can experience on the patio of the Trading Post (open year-round, not to worry!).

Opened in May 2016, the 100-seat Eatery is the perfect place to visit in the heart of Fort Langley. They have a heated patio which has been newly upgraded with turf, allowing it to be opened year-round. What I love the most about the trading post is that they source as many ingredients as possible from local farmers, which means their menu changes seasonally with what is being harvested by local farms. Click here for details.

Google review: “Come here every week!! Spicy fried chicken sandwich is my all-time favourite + staff is super friendly. Always a go-to.” – Izzy S.

Maria’s Gelato

When I used to have an office in Fort Langley one of my favourite things to do was sneak over to the patio at Maria’s gelato on a hot afternoon and enjoy a sweet treat while sitting on the shaded streetside. As far as gelato comes, Maria’s is the best, inviting you to make the difficult decision of choosing between 30 flavours. 

What I love the most is that they believe, “our gelato is only as good as the ingredients we use” and they make hand-crafted gelatos and sorbets, made fresh in-house, daily! If you’re looking for a little patio to indulge in a sweet treat in Fort Langley, Maria’s Gelato is the place! Click here for details.

Google review: “Absolutely delicious vegan and dairy Gelato! Super creamy and every flavour we tried was 10/10. None of us had a drop left in our cups when we were done and that’s not typical for us! Worth the wait you won’t be disappointed!!!” – Ania K.

Rail and River Bistro

One of the unique offerings they have is live music on Tuesday nights from 7 pm – 9 pm, and for true foodies, they have a special offering called the Voyager Club. “We would like to take you on a gastronome adventure into unknown places, right here along the river.” This is a monthly themed and upscale event where your tastebuds are the star of the show.

Seasoned travellers will tell you that no matter where in the world you go, to always source out where locals eat for the best food, and Saba is Fort Langley’s example of this. I can honestly say I’ve never been to Saba without seeing someone I know! 

The good food, the quaint vibe, and the village location invite both locals and visitors to come to dine. I’ve enjoyed their gluten-free muffin in the courtyard (pictured above) as well as met with friends for meals (their pasta is a friend’s favourite!).

And Saba now has two locations in Fort Langley so be sure to check them both out! Click here for details.

Google review: “So freakin good! Baked goods are delicious and taste homemade. The coffee is incredible and the restaurant is fantastic!!! Staff is super great!! Dietary restrictions: GF options offered at restaurant…very cool!” – Stargurl

Want some soul food, dig into a grilled cheese that is absolutely amazing.

Google review: “Well worth the visit. We recently discovered RAW! The patio is so private and we got such a warm welcome. We both tried flights – whisky for me and gin for me wife. We had charcuterie cups which were much more generous than we expected. Such a fun experience and incredible flavours matched only by Fiona’s excellent service. We’ll be back!” – Jonathan C. 

Walnut Grove Patios

Down 2 Earth Plant Parlour

If you’re looking for me on a patio, chances are this is the best place to look. I know I shouldn’t have favourites but Down 2 Earth is really special to me as they offer you to come and try vegan food in a whole new way. Gone are the days of rabbit food salads and in is vegan comfort food, upscale cocktails, and a vibe that you’d expect to see in upscale San Fransisco. The owner Alyssa is relentlessly dedicated to her community, her excellence in food, and ethical business leadership, from sourcing locally to providing exemplary customer service. 

In other words, if you’ve never tried vegan comfort food, D2E is the go-to place waiting for you! Click here for details.

Google review: “I’ve already shared my review in Yelp but google deserves one as well. Honestly, my go to vegan restaurant locally for pastas, burgers and brunch if I don’t wanna spend 40 minutes driving to downtown. The food are delicious and most of the pastas will have you leave the restaurant full. Their hot/cold horchata is the best there. Staff and service are just very kind and A+.” – Kris S.

The Barley Merchant

The Barley Merchant is a staple in the Walnut Grove community, welcoming guests to experience high-quality, fresh ingredients, in an eatery that boasts decor that is as modern and tasteful as its menu. “From our scratch kitchen, we proudly offer dishes that are crafted, not cranked out”. Barley Merchant. “All dressings sauces, stocks, soups, and dips are made fresh in-house, along with our sourdough, gnocchi, and desserts. 

What I love the MOST about the Barley Merchant is that they have a Gluten Free menu (yes, this is the first I have ever heard of a restaurant offering an exclusive GF menu!). This means I can go and choose from multiple items, not just one or two and feel safe knowing that my meals will be delicious and free from Gluten. THANK YOU, Barley Merchant!
