Peach Thyme Bellini

If there’s one thing we love here at Brunchouver, it’s a proper Brunch bevvie. The rules are simple; it needs to have some fruit juice, and it needs to have sparkling wine. Bonus points if it’s served in a champagne flute! This Bellini has it all; sweet peaches, a touch of savory thyme, and, of […]

Gone to Brunch…

We’ll be off taking a bit of a wee break for the next couple of weeks, but we’ll be back in September with new brunch recommendations. Until then, may your coffee always be hot and may you never see the bottom of your cup. ~Bex & Michelle

The Wallflower

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again; Vancouver is experiencing an explosion of really great vegetarian and vegan restaurant options. This is important for several reasons. First off, there are more and more people adopting a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, and it seems unfair to them that the only thing they might be […]

The Gumboot Cafe–Robert’s Creek

It’s summer! You may find yourself traveling over the next month or so, and you may find yourself, if you’re lucky, on the Sunshine Coast. I live in a fantastic place. Just a short, 45 minute ferry ride away takes me to Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast, where a much slower pace of life, gorgeous […]

Tableau Bar Bistro

I count myself incredibly lucky to live right in Downtown Vancouver. I love being in the middle of the action. Here, there are a plethora of dining choices just steps from my front door. Despite it being steps from my front door, until recently, I’d never brunched at Tableau Bar Bistro. I’d stayed at the […]

Sunday Market Brunch at Oceans 999

Brunch. Buffet. Maybe the two sweetest words in the world when you string the two of them together. Unlimited brunch! If you’ve not heard of Oceans 999, it’s because it’s very new. It’s a recent rebrand and refresh (formerly Cafe Pacifica) of the restaurant at the Pan Pacific Hotel on the waterfront. The theme is […]


There’s a new restaurant in Vancouver’s West End that is operating under a unique concept: there is no tipping. Wait, what? Tipping is standard practice at any restaurant that involves table service, and even some that do not. It’s standard to expect to tip anywhere between 10-20% on top of your bill every time you […]

The Portly Chef

It’s hidden gem time. Vancouver is a city that celebrates its best restaraunts and its best chefs. But there are others, off the beaten track, that are crushing it, and just aren’t as well known. The Portly Chef is one of those. I’m going to admit to you straight up: I’d never even heard of […]

Mother’s Day Brunch

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and you’ll want to show your mom how much you appreciate her by doing something nice for her. Whether it’s taking her out for a traditional Mother’s Day brunch (get your reservations now!) or cooking one for her, we’ve got you covered. Going out Mother’s Day Brunches and Buffets (via […]

Celebrunch: Elizabeth Bowen

Elizabeth Bowen is like what I imagined my ideal best friend would be when I was a kid. A halo of blonde ringlets, bright blue eyes, and skin of the porcelain variety. But she’s more than that–smart and funny, this up-and-coming local actor, while she might look all cherubic, also has an edge. We meet […]
