After having a pretty good experience at Wildebeest for Dine Out Vancouver, I decided to come back and try their brunch. I checked out their brunch menu online and I was pretty excited about it! I can brunch all day everyday.
Tuc Craft Kitchen was serving brunch on weekdays for the last few days of the year before New Year’s Eve so my co-workers and I went there for brunch. We were seated upstairs where it felt more cozy and private. This time I was here to try their chicken and waffles. Tuc Craft Kitchen’s chicken and waffles are mentioned often on various “best of brunch” lists and my friend had also recommended it as well. We trekked here through the wind and rain from our office (ok it was like a good 15min walk) so I hoped it would be worth it!
If you love brunch as much as I do, then you’ve probably heard of the ridiculous line ups at Jam Cafe. This is their second location and the first is in Victoria.
If you didn’t already know, I hate line ups. Or if you knew, you’re probably sick of me saying this all the time. Luckily for me, I enticed my boyfriend with photos and reviews of Jam Cafe and he lined up for me =’D I joined him about half way through so the total wait was over an hour but less than 1.5hrs. He’s lined up for other things before so he has more patience than me. There is room for more all day breakfast/brunch restaurants in Vancouver if you’re thinking of getting into the restaurant business! While we were waiting, a server came out with samples of their waffles which made the wait more bearable. The waffles were so good I considered ordering them but I had waffles the day before so I didn’t. Read more
The Breakfast Table is situated on Broadway and Granville, across from McDonald’s. They specialize in all day breakfast/brunch with an Asian twist.
The inside is painted a robin’s egg blue and there’s a moderate amount of seating. When I went in November, it wasn’t too busy yet around lunch time and there was just a short wait. They can call you or text you when your table is ready so we just went over to Chapters to browse around first.
The menu features various hashes (is this a word?) with different proteins such as fried chicken, beef bulgogi and smoked cosalmon along with more classic dishes like the classic benedict, waffles and French toast.
My friends and I gathered at Stormcrow Alehouse for brunch because we wanted to play board games. They are located on Broadway and Fir St., next to Earl’s.
We had passed by before and thought that we should return. It was really bumpin’ at night! This place looks cool inside and they put in a lot of effort to include fantasy themed decorations!
Sadly brunch was terrible and only one item was good.
I was looking for a brunch place that was reasonably priced and I came across Upstairs at Campagnolo. I read about them before but forgot about them. I really wanted to go to Jam Cafe but I didn’t really want to wait. But then again I never do… hahaha
You enter through this green door and go upstairs. They even have a helpful sign. Read more
Originally my friend and I were going to try Twisted Fork for brunch but we were quite turned off by the one hour wait so we headed towards Yaletown in search of another brunch option. We passed by The Flying Pig and surprisingly there was no line up! This was around 1pm. They have three locations now (Yaletown, Gastown, Mount Pleasant) so maybe their customer base is more dispersed now?
We were seated right away and served complimentary Banana Bread which was a nice surprise. The banana bread was sliced thinly and each piece was moist and full of banana flavour. Read more
