Several exceptional oceanfront restaurants along with pubs and casual eateries make Pender Island an excellent culinary stop in the Gulf Islands.
Factor in a first-rate grocery store for homecooked and picnic supplies, and it's wise to pack an appetite here.
Hand's on best-of-view title goes to the Hope Bay Café, perched above the water dockside facing Navy Channel and Mayne Island. Try the risotto cakes to start, then the curried mussels and prawns or specials based on the local catch of the day. Hardwood floors and nothing but window seats indoors plus a waterfront patio when the weather's fine.
Aurora at Poets Cove Resort & Spa is Pender's one high-end dining option. This excellent white tablecloth restaurant offers Bedwell Harbour views, a smashing wine list, and a luxe menu featuring meat and seafood dishes. Breakfast and lunch here is casual and relatively inexpensive. Downstairs from Aurora is Syrens Bistro with its upscale pub atmosphere.
