Preston’s

I really love my neighbourhood. It’s all about walkability in the West End; many people who live here don’t have cars, and don’t feel need to own one. Everything you need is within a relatively short walking distance–the seawall, Stanley Park, the Farmer’s Market, awesome shopping and restaurants. Preston’s in the Coast Hotel on Pender […]

Clough Club

When it comes to brunch, Gastown is lousy with choices, most of which I’m pretty familiar with. Which is why I was surprised that I’d never been to Clough Club before. It’s one of Gastown’s smaller, and more hidden restaurants, perhaps a bit overshadowed by its next-door neighbor, the much larger Lamplighter. This gal loves […]

Rocky Mountain Flatbread

Let’s be real. We’re fans of pizza for breakfast here at Brunchcouver. But what we are bigger fans of, is locally-sourced ingredients prepared with care. So, while this particular brunch blogger has long been a fan of the ethics and sourcing policies of Rocky Mountain Flatbread, it wasn’t until very recently that she even knew […]

Virtuous Pie

I’ve been a big fan of Virtuous Pie ever since they opened their doors about a year ago. Vancouver is home to lots of great plant-based restaurants. I am personally a fan of The Acorn, Heirloom, and for junk food, MeeT. We even had a plant-based ice cream shop for a while, but sadly Nice […]

The Bohemian, Kelowna

If there’s one getaway I really love, it’s to the Okanagan. A mere 4 hour drive outside of Vancouver takes you to the most magical land of sun, sparkling lakes, fresh, locally grown produce, and wine. The wine is my favorite part, but running a close second is all of the great restaurants that the […]

The Charles Bar

Located on the ground level of the Woodward’s Building, on the edge of Gastown, The Charles Bar has been a fixture for the past 6 years. The space is uniquely-shaped, as it’s located in the tip of the point of the building, so it’s triangular in nature. There are lots of big windows which provide […]

Vancouver Mother’s Day Brunch 2017

Your mama–she’s special! I mean, not only did she give you life, but she took care of you; and probably still does. Do something nice for your mom this Sunday, May 14, Mother’s Day. For most folks, that means brunch! Mother’s Day Brunch in Vancouver can be tricky. We’re a city that loves brunch, so […]

Virtuous Pie Launches Limited-Time Plant-Based Brunch

One of my fave new places to eat in the city is Virtuous Pie. This place is a 100% plant-based pizza joint, and boy howdy, do they serve up tasty, tasty pizzas. They do salads and vegan ice cream, as well. I was stoked to learn that they are doing brunch for a limited time […]

Calabash Bistro

So, here at Brunchcouver, we eat a lot of eggs. It’s kind of an occupational hazard. In the course of our brunch research, we eat a lot of eggs, a lot of toast, a lot of breakfast potatoes. So when we come across something different, like really different, for brunch, it’s always a breath of […]

St Regis: New Brunch Menu

I work at BCIT. I’ve been an instructor there for the last 6 years, and while I only work there part-time, I am there pretty much every Tuesday night. Conveniently located across the street from my work is the St Regis Bar & Grill. It’s big and dark, and it has this Malbec I like […]
