The Donnelly Group: Brunch at the The New Oxford

We All have a list of brunch spots we’d like to try in town. I’m going to strongly suggest you add the Donnelly Group pubs, and The Tavern at the New Oxford in particular, to that list… pronto! I was recently invited to a tasting of the new brunch menu and I have to say, […]

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 […]

Blue Moon Flying Swan Cafe

No restaurant has operated in Kitsilano longer than the Blue Moon Flying Swan Cafe. This family run restaurant has been in operation since 1962. They like to say they keep banker’s hours so if you want an all-day breakfast in Kits then this is the place to go. The Blue Moon Flying Swan Cafe is, […]

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 […]

Locus Restaurant and Lounge

Locus Restaurant is one of those places that Vancouver does well; funky decor with approachable food and committed to local suppliers and seasonal ingredients. I was breaking in a new Brunch Buddy this week day. Yes, a weekday meal does sound more like breakfast but we did meet later in the morning so I tend […]

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 […]

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 […]
