Eat the Suburbs: The Best Places to Eat in Langley, B.C.

Whether you're passing through or doing some destination dining, these Langley restaurants prove the city has its own impressive culinary scene.

Want to get to know Langley’s food scene? Let Angela Ruscheinski be your guide. She’s the creative director and co-founder behind sister restaurants Haven Kitchen and Bar and Steven’s Cocktail Corner Bar and Kitchen, and she knows her way around the city like maybe no one else. Her restaurants couldn’t be more different—Haven is chic and vibe-y, Steven’s is cheekily dive-y—but together, they fulfill one goal: “We wanted to bring a piece of downtown to Langley.” Here, we’ve mapped out Ruscheinski’s fave spots in town.

Decadent cioppino at Sabà Bistro

Date Night Delight

Get the decadent cioppino (MP) at Mediterranean-chic Sabà Bistro. 9220 Glover Rd.

Tourist cocktail from Haven

It’s a Vibe

Crispy tempura cauliflower ($16) is best paired with a spinach-infused Tourist cocktail ($12.50) at the buzzy Haven. (Hot tip: the patio is open year ‘round.) 105-19664 64 Ave. 

Steven’s Orange Julius

The Perfect Nightcap

The signature drink at Steven’s is the Orange Julius ($13)—a boozy version of the ’90s mall staple. 20526 Fraser Hwy.  

Camp Beer Co. interior

Happy Hour Haunt

Camp Beer Co. is an oasis for craft beer lovers in the thick of the strip-mall zone. The Anorak IPA ($8) is hoppy perfection. 19664 64 Ave. 

Barley Merchant's beer cheese dip

Comfort Club

If you’re not getting the beer cheese dip ($17) at the Barley Merchant, have you even truly lived? 20090 91A Ave. 

Tacoholic's authentic carnitas Mexican tacos

Cheap and Cheerful

The family-run Tacoholic is a hidden gem: authentic carnitas Mexican tacos for around $3 a pop. 20631 Fraser Hwy.

Oxford Ice Cream cones

What a Scoop

Sorry, Marble Slab, but Oxford Ice Cream is king here—get a scoop of brown butter cheesecake ($6). 20581 Fraser Hwy. 

Blacksmith Bakery

Coffee Break

Get your latte to go from Blacksmith Bakery, or  stay with a croque madame ($18). A100-20018 83A Ave. 



What to do Between Meals in Langley

1. Find the small-town charm

Fort Langley is like a Lower Mainland Stars Hollow: heritage buildings house bookstores, florists, antique shops and galleries.

2. Roll the dice

Obviously this is a list of things to do if you’re not hungry, but surely you have room for a beer and a round of Anomia at the Raving Gamer Bistro?

3. Stock your cellar

There’s a jaw-dropping amount of bottles (many specialty or premium) at Everything Wine; catch tastings and meet-the-maker events, too. If you’d rather buy right from the source, Langley has a handful of wineries to tour as well: Backyard Vineyards and Township 7 among them. 

4. Lace up your sneakers

The Houston Trail is a scenic four-kilometre lop—perfect for burning off the beer cheese you had earlier. Be wary of horses sharing the path, though: you’re in the country now, after all.
