Cheap breakfast spots in Vancouver

It’s true that there are a ton of great breakfast options in Vancouver, but some of them will cost you an arm and a leg. How often do you want to spend that much before Noon? Here’s a list of some lesser-known gems that pride themselves on serving affordable breakfast dishes, all for less than $10.

Cafe Zen On Yew

1631 Yew St, Vancouver, BC V6K 3E6

This staple West Side breakfast joint discounts their breakfast menu if you arrive before 10 a.m. So if you’re up early enough you can score a plate full of bacon, eggs, toast and hash browns for just $5. Plus this cozy little gem is just up the street from Kits Beach, the perfect destination for a post-breakfast stroll.

NSCS Discovery Café

1515 Discovery St, Vancouver, BC V6R 4K5

NSCS Discovery Café is run by students from the North Shore Culinary School’s tuition-free program and located at the Jericho Beach HI Hostel. Order the classic breakfast and you’ll get eggs, bacon, hash browns, and a homemade biscuit for just $5. Cheap eats paired with beautiful views make this lovely little spot hard to beat when it comes to breakfast.

Bon's Off Broadway

2451 Nanaimo St, Vancouver, BC V5N 5E5

Bon’s is infamous in Vancouver for their $2.99 all-day breakfast. And you really do get a bang for your buck here with their heaping portion size. This breakfast fills up your whole plate and your belly with two slices of toast, two eggs, a load of delicious pan-fried potatoes, and three pieces of quality bacon, sausage, or ham.

Regal Beagle

The Regal Beagle in Kitsilano has a lengthy menu with varied prices, but the cheapest option is the Beagle Breakfast that gets you eggs, bacon, house potatoes and toast for $4.99. Avocado or chorizo can be added to your order for only a few extra bucks, which you can definitely afford to treat yourself to at this price.

Nice Cafe

154 8th Ave E, Vancouver, BC V5T 1R7

The Nice Café on East 8th Avenue has a large and inexpensive breakfast menu on which you won’t find anything over $9. While everything on the menu is affordable, the thriftiest option is the all-day breakfast deal of two eggs, hash browns, toast, and your choice of ham, bacon, sausage, or tomato, all for less than $5.

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.
