Shopping on Granville Island has its privileges, such as the abundance of eateries available to hungry shoppers in need of a little sustenance. Kaisereck is a food court stand in Granville Island’s Public market that serves freshly made deli sandwiches and sausages — taunting passerbys with the enticing smell emanating from their grill.

Case ordered the European weiner — a thin, smoky sausage with a crispy snap when you bite into it. Every order comes with complimentary grilled onions and sauerkraut, with an assortment of condiments and toppings of your choice on the side of the deli.

I had the Bratwurst, a beautifully seasoned sausage that was unfortunately handicapped from overgrilling. Parts of the sausage were paper dry and brittle, while the rest was nicely flavoured.
Two dogs and a bottled water came to $15 — which felt pricey, but we expected to pay a little more when we hit the Island. The sausages were decent, nothing outstanding, but any meal tastes better on the dock, basking in the sun while the wind gently brushes against your face.
