Elbow Room Cafe

Attending Elbow Room Cafe: The Musical made me realize that it has been too long since I’ve enjoyed brunch at the actual Elbow Room Cafe. It was a film festival weekend and that meant spending most of my time at the Vancity Theatre. It made perfect sense to take the time to walk down the […]

Cheap and Cheerful: Bon’s Off Broadway

This is the second post in our series about the cheapest breakfasts in the city. The goal here is to source out all the joints where you can get away with coffee and breakfast for under $10. Bon’s Off Broadway is number one in the category, and has been…. pretty much since I can remember. […]

Elbow Room Cafe: The Musical

While some of us write about food, Elbow Room Cafe: The Musical, playing at the Cultch, sings about it with more sass and flamboyance than should be legally allowed. This isn’t a musical you sit back and assess. It’s one you hurtle yourself into, cheer with great gusto, clap along with the music and maybe […]

Big Smoke Alehouse

A few years ago, I visited New Orleans for the first time. One of the prevalent smells in NOLA is that of barbecue and smoke. That particular smell of smoking wood that is both delicious and incredibly anticipatory. That same smell is the aroma that greets you when you walk in the front door of […]

Acme Cafe

Acme Cafe was the perfect location for my last Celebrunch interview with the fabulous Johannah Newmarch. Acme is a Gastown cafe that focuses on local ingredients crafted with a creative eye to the limitations of the restaurant. You see, they don’t have a grill. The cafe can be found in the historic Paris Block on […]

Library Square Public House

The location feels a bit odd. Library Square, a “proper English pub,” is located in… well, Library Square, on the corner of Georgia and Richards. It seems like the last place where you’d find a proper pub, but its exterior is deceptive. Once inside, there is a lot of space, dark wood, cozy booths upholstered […]

Celebrunch: Johannah Newmarch

Johannah Newmarch is someone who is exactly as you would expect her to be; principled, honest, and passionate about her craft. You’ve seen her on shows like Supernatural, Smallville and Minority Report, but most recently you might recognize her from Netflix’s Project MC2, and Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart. She’s so busy that finding time […]

Breakfast Table

One of our jobs here at Brunchcouver is to keep out ahead of the pack; to be on the cutting edge with eggs, so to speak. We like to check out the newest that the city has to offer and report back to y’all so that you can also be in the know. I failed […]

Greenhorn Espresso Bar

Every neighbourhood has a haunt that they wish the rest of the city never found out about. My apologies to the West End but I’m about to blow the roof off your closely guarded secret; the Greenhorn Espresso Bar is destination-worthy for those outside the city core. I discovered Greenhorn through a friend a couple […]

Fable Diner

I wanted to make my first brunch back to be something special, a breakfast that would inspire a year’s worth of blogs, and I found that inspiration at Fable Diner. If you enjoy Fable Kitchen on 4th Avenue then I know you’ll enjoy their sister restaurant located at Broadway and Main in the Lee Building, […]
