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 […]

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 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 […]

Slickity Jim’s Chat N’ Chew

There are times you go to a popular restaurant and it disappoints. This is not one of those times. Slickity Jim’s Chat N’ Chew is every bit as good as I was told it would be. I was breaking in a new Brunch Buddy on an early Saturday morning and thankful for it. It’s hard […]

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 […]
