Vancouver is known for it’s delicious food but if you’re looking for a great brunch spot, I have my fan favourites below. Keep reading for the best brunch places in Vancouver that I keep going back to time and time again.
Oeb Breakfast Co.
Oeb Breakfast Co. has 4 lower mainland Vancouver locations, including Yaletown, North Vancouver, West Vancouver and Burnaby. They have an extensive menu that will have you coming back every day of the week. If you’re a traditional brunch enthusiast, try one of the 6 eggs Benedict options. For something a little different, give one of the 8 different breakfast poutine bowls a try. Either way, it’s the perfect place to go to pair your brunch with breakfast classics like a Bloody Mary or Caesar.
One of the city’s best brunch restaurants is Chambar, located downtown Vancouver on Beatty Street. If you’re looking for a special occasion weekend brunch, this is one of the best restaurants. I highly recommend their Belgian waffles. They come with unique toppings like Milk Chocolate Lavender and Salted Caramel.
You’ll likely see a line up for this popular spot, but once inside you’ll quickly understand why Cafe Medina is among Vancouver’s legendary brunch spots. The Les Boulettes with poached egg and spicy Moroccan lamb meatballs or the Fricassée with eggs and braised short rib are just two of the top picks.
Fable Diner on east main street is one of the best brunch spots in the neighbourhood. If you are looking for a savoury brunch dish, try the huevos rancheros, it’s delicious. Both the weekday brunch menu and the a la carte brunch menu have vegetarian and vegan options.
Heading to Whistler soon and looking for the best coffee shops? Read about them HERE.
Jam Cafe has two Vancouver locations (and one in Victoria). If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to try one of the many options available. Hello Cinnamon Bun Pancakes! There are also 32 side dishes available so even the pickiest eater will enjoy their all-day breakfast here!
Fairmont Pacific Rim
The Botanist dining room at Fairmont Pacific Rim is as stunning as the food is delicious. If you want to indulge, the brioche french toast with buffalo ricotta crumb, crème angles and berry compote will make your tastebuds sing. This is one of the best places for smashed avocado toast so give it a try if you want something lighter. Pro tip: the Botanist bartenders have won numerous international awards and you’ll want to start happy hour early when you see their brunch cocktail menu.
Known for comfort classics, Red Wagon smokes and cures their own meat in-house so you know their pulled pork pancakes with maple syrup and BBQ brisket with fried egg will be delicious. But this is also a great place for a classic Croque Madame or Breakfast Banh Mi so be sure to give them a try.
When you roll out of bed on Sunday morning and are looking for the best spots for brunch, give one of these places a try. If you have menu highlights that I’ve missed, let me know in the comments below!
