Vancouver Mother’s Day Brunch 2017

Your mama–she’s special! I mean, not only did she give you life, but she took care of you; and probably still does. Do something nice for your mom this Sunday, May 14, Mother’s Day. For most folks, that means brunch! Mother’s Day Brunch in Vancouver can be tricky. We’re a city that loves brunch, so […]

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 […]

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 […]

Storm Crow Tavern

The Storm Crow Tavern is the first and original Storm Crow concept and not to be confused with the Storm Crow Alehouse, which the Brunch Blog Boss has already blogged about. While the Alehouse is what every beer- and burger-loving nerd would love for a rec room, the Tavern is where you feel you should […]

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 […]

Elbow Room Cafe

Attending Elbow Room Cafe: The Musical made me realize that it has been too long since I’ve enjoyed brunch at the actual Elbow Room Cafe. It was a film festival weekend and that meant spending most of my time at the Vancity Theatre. It made perfect sense to take the time to walk down the […]

Cheap and Cheerful: Bon’s Off Broadway

This is the second post in our series about the cheapest breakfasts in the city. The goal here is to source out all the joints where you can get away with coffee and breakfast for under $10. Bon’s Off Broadway is number one in the category, and has been…. pretty much since I can remember. […]

Elbow Room Cafe: The Musical

While some of us write about food, Elbow Room Cafe: The Musical, playing at the Cultch, sings about it with more sass and flamboyance than should be legally allowed. This isn’t a musical you sit back and assess. It’s one you hurtle yourself into, cheer with great gusto, clap along with the music and maybe […]
