Where to Brunch in Vancouver
Italian baked eggs, spam fried rice, bloody marys, and pastrami-spiced beets. Here are five beloved brunch spots to check off your list in Vancouver.
Dim Sum & Then Some
Cold Tea serves all-day dim sum with a strong emphasis on family-style sharing. Weekend brunch, available from noon to 3 p.m., features Hong Kong French toast, char siu breakfast sandos, bacon & spam fried rice, plus an array of dumplings. Pair with a Midori spritz on tap—or get a punch bowl for the table.
Live Music Brunch
In the mood for some soulful Italian food? Carlino gets its inspiration from the Friuli region of Italy and the bounty of British Columbia. At brunch, you’ll see dishes like Italian baked eggs with smashed potatoes, housemade gnocchi alla carbonara, and chicken cacciatora waffles. To go with it? Get a bottle of lambrusco for something light and bubbly. Bonus points for the live music and overall leisurely ambiance.
This ultra-charming café, bistro, and specialty grocer pays homage to the French expression, savoir-vivre, which acts as a reminder to live elegantly and celebrate the everyday indulgences. At Marché Mon Pitou, that might look like treating yourself to an espresso tonic, a classic croque, or soft scrambled eggs spooned over a piece of fresh sourdough. Simple, delicious, and done right.
Calling all Vegans
The Acorn specializes in modern, creative, vegetable-forward cuisine, natural wine, and craft cocktails. While you’re going to find predominantly vegan dishes, this is a restaurant for anyone and everyone who appreciates thoughtfully-composed dishes and drinks. We highly recommend opting for the customized tasting menu experience (yes, even for brunch), highlighting seasonal ingredients at their peak.
Brunch at a Beerhall
This craft brewery and beerhall is equipped with large communal tables, arcade games, and ping pong. In other words, it’s the perfect spot for Sunday Funday. Enjoy hot breakfast sammies or a classic breakfast of eggs, sausages, challah toast, and hash browns. There’s also plenty of all-day pub fare, including smashburgers and famous fried pickles, served with creamy dill dip. Order a beer flight so you can try limited release and signature series brews.
