Cafe Deux Soleils

1
2096 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC V5N 4B2

At Cafe Deux Soleils, you can branch out with the Jemlette, which is an omelette that comes with the works or your choice of ingredients. You can also get scrambled eggs on a croissant or a breakfast sundae, both of which are totally healthy. Trust us.

Falconetti's East Side Gril

2
1812 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC V5N 4A5

Falconetti’s has what it takes to hijack your weekend brunch plans. Bacon and smoked salmon are made in house and served alongside free-range eggs. Or go for the renowned house-made sausages. They’re an ideal add-on to the eggs Benedict (the citrus-cilantro Hollandaise is to-die-for!).

The Reef Restaurant

1018 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC V5L 3W9

With a DJ scheduled almost every night of the week, the party never stops at The Reef. Take in the show and then stop in after a power nap to refuel at brunch. The jerk salmon Benny and Jamaica Me Crabby (a Benny with curried crab cakes instead of bacon) are wonderful fusions of English breakfast with Jamaican spices and tastes.

New Skylight Restaurant

4
1012 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC V5L 3W9

Chinese and Canadian food combined with a brunch menu makes Skylight a great place for your next Sunday breakfast. A popular independent in a world of big restaurant chains, this place has yet to shed its ‘70s era décor so don’t forget to wear your bellbottoms. With a full breakfast menu including pancakes and omelettes, your kids will love it too.

Scandilicious Foods Inc

5
25 Victoria Dr, Vancouver, BC V5L 4C1

Wake up to Viking Breath (roast garlic, brie and onion waffle) at the Commercial Drive branch of this Scandinavian waffle house. Do you like chocolate or seasonal fruit baked into your waffle? No problem. Gluten-free and vegan-friendly varieties are on the menu, too. Eat in or watch for the bright red food truck.

Havana

6
1212 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC V5L 3X4

Theatre, gallery and restaurant may seem like an odd combination, but at Havana, it works. After enjoying your free-run eggs done to order, browse the art exhibit or schedule a movie for later. Breakfast is available until 2 pm with plenty of veggie options. If the Belgian waffle Benedict doesn’t strike your fancy, then tapas, soft tacos, sandwiches and sustainably sourced mussels – all on the breakfast menu – surely will.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
