OEB Breakfast Co.-New Brunch Spot

OEB hails from Calgary and they have opened their first BC location in Yaletown next to Provence Marinaside. I was invited for a media preview by my Instagram friend @guacarons courtesy of @nativmediaco. All food and drinks were complimentary but opinions are my own.

Brunch at Market By Jean-Georges

My friend works in the tourism industry and every year they have a tourism challenge where you try to collect stamps from different tourist attractions and then you can get in for free for the whole year. Sounds like a great perk to me! As part of the tourism challenge, some restaurants (mainly hotel restaurants) also have special offers. Market By Jean-Georges was offering a buy 1 get 1 free breakfast/brunch (up to $25) so we decided to check it out. Market is located inside the Shangri-La Hotel.

Brunch at Mamie Taylor’s

My friend and I were going to watch Captain Marvel in the afternoon but first we had to have brunch! We decided on Mamie Taylor’s because I saw on Instagram they had a new brunch menu. They are located in Chinatown across from Phnom Penh on Georgia Street. I know it’s not where you think a brunch spot would be, especially not in the middle of a block of Chinese grocery stores and Chinese herbal medicine shops. The signage isn’t exactly obvious so it’s easy to miss if you’re not looking for it.

Water St. Cafe-Brunch

I didn’t really peg Water St. Cafe as a brunch destination but turns out I was wrong. We were having brunch here to start off a Bachelorette party and they let us have their private room upstairs for “free” since no one else had booked it. Usually they would have to enforce a set menu on us if we wanted to book the room.

Chicken and Waffles-Tuc Craft Kitchen

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!

Sent Boyfriend to Line Up at Jam Cafe

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.

Jam Cafe

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.   Continue reading →

The Breakfast Table

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 Breakfast Table

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.

Stormcrow Alehouse-Impressive Ambiance, Sub-par Brunch

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.

Stormcrow AlehouseWe 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!

Stormcrow Alehouse

Sadly brunch was terrible and only one item was good.

Hipster Brunch: Upstairs at Campagnolo

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

Upstairs at Campagnolo

You enter through this green door and go upstairs. They even have a helpful sign.  Continue reading →
