Acme Cafe

Acme Cafe was the perfect location for my last Celebrunch interview with the fabulous Johannah Newmarch. Acme is a Gastown cafe that focuses on local ingredients crafted with a creative eye to the limitations of the restaurant. You see, they don’t have a grill. The cafe can be found in the historic Paris Block on […]

Library Square Public House

The location feels a bit odd. Library Square, a “proper English pub,” is located in… well, Library Square, on the corner of Georgia and Richards. It seems like the last place where you’d find a proper pub, but its exterior is deceptive. Once inside, there is a lot of space, dark wood, cozy booths upholstered […]

Celebrunch: Johannah Newmarch

Johannah Newmarch is someone who is exactly as you would expect her to be; principled, honest, and passionate about her craft. You’ve seen her on shows like Supernatural, Smallville and Minority Report, but most recently you might recognize her from Netflix’s Project MC2, and Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart. She’s so busy that finding time […]

Breakfast Table

One of our jobs here at Brunchcouver is to keep out ahead of the pack; to be on the cutting edge with eggs, so to speak. We like to check out the newest that the city has to offer and report back to y’all so that you can also be in the know. I failed […]

Greenhorn Espresso Bar

Every neighbourhood has a haunt that they wish the rest of the city never found out about. My apologies to the West End but I’m about to blow the roof off your closely guarded secret; the Greenhorn Espresso Bar is destination-worthy for those outside the city core. I discovered Greenhorn through a friend a couple […]

Fable Diner

I wanted to make my first brunch back to be something special, a breakfast that would inspire a year’s worth of blogs, and I found that inspiration at Fable Diner. If you enjoy Fable Kitchen on 4th Avenue then I know you’ll enjoy their sister restaurant located at Broadway and Main in the Lee Building, […]

Cheap & Cheerful: The Regal Beagle

We have a new series here at Brunchcouver, it’s called Cheap and Cheerful. The idea is to highlight breakfast and brunch in Vancity for under $10. Where can you get it? Whose is worthy and whose is just a greasy hangover cure? We are setting out to answer all the questions. Our first stop? The […]

The Templeton Restaurant

The Templeton is that diner you wish you had in your neighbourhood; a place with a love for nostalgia and a commitment to fresh, organic and local. It’s diner food made healthy, and it’s a delicious slice of a bygone era on the Granville Entertainment Strip. I was meeting a Brunch Buddy who was visiting […]

Corduroy Restaurant

Kitsilano is blessed with a number of neighbourhood public houses but few are as embedded in the culture of the area as Corduroy Restaurant.  It’s a neighbourhood watering hole, local talent promoter, and all around easy-going hangout. Oh, yeah, and it has a great deal on for weekend brunch. This weekend brunch is unique. It’s […]

La Brasserie

La Brasserie is one of those places you walk past on Davie St and always see a crowd inside. There’s a reason for that, and it starts with the food. The menu is Franco-German inspired, with an emphasis on the Franco. The ingredients are locally sourced with a focus on organic and quality.  This is […]
