The Flying Pig-Brunch

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

The Fish Shack-Brunch

EDIT: Ok never mind I went again the fries are still HORRIBLE and everything else is really average so it’s not exactly a brunch place.

I was looking for a brunch place to go to before watching the Avengers and the Fish Shack was relatively close so we decided to try it. The Fish Shack is owned by the Glowbal Group and it used to be some Mediterranean place that I also tried but it closed down.

It was interesting how they used pallets to decorate one side of their wall and they had a fishing theme going on which was pretty cool. There are also some TV’s for watching sports games.
