The best brunch spots in Vancouver’s Kerrisdale Village

Have your (pan)cake and eat it too! From traditional French croissants to homemade eggs benedict, Vancouver’s Kerrisdale Village is a historic and quiet neighbourhood offering many culinary surprises on a weekend morning.

Bean Brother's Cafe

1
2179 41St Ave W, Vancouver, BC V6M 1Z6

Warm lighting and happy chatter enliven this expansive bistro, where, for nearly 20 years, locals have lined up for delicious coffees, baked goods, and plenty of comfort foods. Choose between egg dishes, made any way you like, or grab a friend and split the French toast and famous “Kerrisdale hash” for the best of both worlds. Can’t get enough coffee? Never fear; the cafe’s trademark beans-to-go are ideal for afternoon enjoyment.

Faubourg Bakery

2156 W 41st, Vancouver, BC V6M 1Z6

Prepare to be transported to le belle Paris, because dining at Fauborg is truly an immersive experience. The traditional French Patisserie offers a classic Parisian-style continental breakfast that satiates while leaving you feeling light as a feather – just the way the French like it. This petite yet punchy meal – served in an ornate dining area – consists of coffee or tea, and your choice of the following: mini baguette, plain or chocolate croissant, brioche, omelette, fruit salad, or all of the above. Each comes with plenty of jam and butter, of course.

Stock Up Café & Catering

3
6019 West Boulevard, Vancouver, BC V6M 3X2

Run by celebrated local chef Cameron Greaves – who cut his teeth at top establishments before launching Stock Up – this cafe’s contemporary aesthetic balance nicely with its very traditional (and very delectable) brunch menu. Time-honoured dishes include a breakfast bagel, bacon-and-egg wrap, and black forest ham omelette, all made with the finest ingredients. And once you’ve had your fill, why not browse Greaves’ impressive selection of prepared meals, where dishes of shrimp risotto or curried chicken may come in handy during a busy workweek.

Jethro's

4
3420 Dunbar St, Vancouver, BC V6S 2C2

Be sure to arrive at Jethro’s on an empty stomach; scrumptious brunches are served on what must be the largest plates in the neighbourhood. Popular among locals and visitors alike, arrive early, too, as you may need to queue for your corned beef hash, or chicken fried steak. For those with a sweet tooth, the apple-cobbler French toast and buttermilk pancakes are perfect, as is The Gold Rush, pancakes stuffed with caramel, pecans and streusel. Complimenting such Southern-style dishes is the eatery’s funky decor and homey atmosphere, which attract patrons (and cowboys) of all walks of life.

Dylan's

5
561 57th Ave W, Vancouver, BC V6P 1R8

This unassuming diner’s $5.50 breakfast includes a whopping serving of bacon, eggs any style, toast, and hash browns – which, despite a simple presentation, are arguably some of the best around. Spend just a few more dollars and you’ll also choose from buttermilk pancakes, eggs Benedict, omelettes stuffed with vegetables, and more deliciously straightforward plates. And the best part? Dylan’s’ affordable all-day brunch service ensures you won’t need to rise early to get your eggs and bacon.

Finest At Sea Seafood Boutique

6
4675 Arbutus St, Vancouver, BC V6J 4A3

Seafood may not be top of mind on a Saturday morning, but perhaps a steaming bowl of clam chowder and fresh bread, or battered halibut with piping hot chips, are just what weekend warriors need to start the afternoon right. Most don’t know that the fish shop doubles as an intimate cafe, where locals enjoy fresh seafood prepared in a variety of ways by talented cooks. Sitting opposite Prince of Wales Park, you can combine your meal with a nature walk – the perfect cure for a raucous night out.

Secret Garden Tea Company

7
2138 40th Ave W, Vancouver, BC V6M 1W5

Served until 11am each day, breakfast at Secret Tea Garden is truly one of Kerrisdale’s best-kept secrets. Most don’t know the famous teahouse offers a substantial breakfast menu, which includes cutesy dishes like the heart-shaped breakfast sandwich, and more unique items such as the French toast croissant (caramelized apples, maple, cream cheese, and cinnamon tucked into a grilled croissant) and banana bread oatmeal. For those desiring brunch fit for a queen, High Tea occurs three times per day, and includes tea, sandwiches and tiny sweet treats.
