Aphrodites Organic Cafe and Pie Shop

Pie for breakfast at Aphrodites Mmm… pie. Is pie the most perfect food ever? Ask my friend Sean. He regularly requests it every year in the place of cake for his birthday. Yup, pie is pretty damn fine (see what I did there?). One of the absolute top purveyors of that flaky, delicious treat is Aphrodites in […]

Roland’s on Fourth

Do you remember Hell’s Kitchen? A few years back, I went there for brunch with a bunch of girlfriends, and while the food, I think, was okay, the decor… well, it was called Hell’s Kitchen, right? Yeah, it wasn’t very fancy. Definitely on the divey side. Well, a couple weeks ago, I walked into what […]

Edible Canada

One of the greatest things about having a blog is being able to give some really public kudos to the places I love the most in this city. We are blessed to live in such an amazing foodie town. There are so many great options–I love it. And I love being able to tell people […]

Bistro Pastis

Bistro Brunch at its Best When the Brunch Blog Boss texts you and invites you to brunch at Bistro Pastis, there’s only one answer, a resounding YES. Bistro Pastis is a long-standing stand-out classic French restaurant in Kitsilano. For fifteen years restauranteur John Blakely has been serving classic, elegant French food in a room that […]

Oakwood Canadian Bistro

The Oakwood Canadian Bistro has a big following in Kitsilano for Brunch. The line-ups prove it. What makes the Oakwood a must-try is their unique take on classics and their exceptional plating. The jury is still out for me on the food, though. No detail is left to chance at the Oakwood. It’s a restaurant […]

Deacon’s Corner

A Traditional Diner in the Heart of Kitsilano Kitsilano has a lot of great brunch spots, but a traditional Diner has been the one thing missing from the plethora of options. Sure, you can get a great Italian brunch, or a fantastic upscale Benny, but what about the basics? Where can you go to get […]

Fable Kitchen

I need to be upfront with you. Fable Kitchen is my favourite. If you asked me where I wanted to have my last brunch, Fable would be it. With a side of Chef Chris Whittaker’s (Forage) scones. In my opinion, Trevor Bird is doing it all right. He cooks seasonally. He’s growing stuff on the roof. […]

Local Public Eatery

Local Public Eatery: Easy Like Sunday Morning Local is one of my defaults. Across the street from Kits beach, Local has a kick-ass patio in the summer–in fact it’s difficult to get a seat out there, it’s so popular. If you can’t sit outside, they have huge garage doors that open up to the beach, […]

Nook Restaurant

Flavour Crammed in Every NOOK And Cranny It’s no secret I love Nook. Heck, it’s even in my biography. But why I love Nook changes every time I visit the restaurant. It even changes with every meal. What was to love about my latest visit to this quickly established mainstay in the Kitsilano brunch scene? Clean, bold […]

Waffle Gone Wild

Originally published on Vancity Buzz.  It started with an adventure. David and his fiancé, Nicole, had just graduated from University, and like many young people, decided to do some travelling before settling down. They booked a trip for Europe, and part of their trip included Brussels. Their first morning in Brussels, they discovered a small […]
