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 […]

The Gray Olive Cafeteria

It’s rare to find a new breakfast spot before everyone else. When I asked how long The Gray Olive Cafeteria had been open, the answer was roughly a month and a half. You wouldn’t have known that as the place filled up with an early lunch crowd. The secret was clearly out. I had a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bao Down Gastropub and Raw Bar

Bao Down isn’t just another weekend brunch sandwiched in a city filled with great weekend brunches. This one is original and familiar, comforting and exotic; the kind of place you can’t wait to share the pictures you’ve taken on your phone. Oh, wait, that might just be me. We chose to make this one a […]

Havana

I recently met up with a girlfriend for brunch at Havana, and before I went, I had to go back through the Brunchcouver archives. I just assumed that this staple of the Brunchcouver community had already been covered here. Turns out, no. I was pretty surprised, and was excited have the opportunity to right the […]

Tuc Craft Kitchen

Tuc Craft Kitchen is one of those places that has been on our list for months. We’ve heard a ton of buzz about it… but it was only recently that we had the opportunity to check it out for ourselves. Normally, we here at Brunchcouver like to travel in packs–the more people you take with […]

Yolk’s Breakfast

You may be familiar with the baby-blue Yolk’s food truck you’ll often see around the city (they favour the Stadium Skytrain Station and the corner of Pender and Burrard), but Yolk’s also has a more permanent location. You may remember The Brave Bull on the corner of Commercial and Hastings. No? That’s okay. It was only […]
