If you don’t like brunch food, then I don’t know why you’re even here! Haha, just kidding. But on a real note, brunch food is probably one of the best meals ever. The combination of breakfast and lunch food? How much better can a meal get? Oh wait…you can also have a glass of alcohol and no one will judge! I think it’s pretty obvious why brunch is the best meal. Now go and try all these awesome restaurants!

How does maple pork belly sound for lunch? Make way Denny’s, it’s time to try a new and unique taste of brunch food! The Oakwood Canadian Bistro has such a different menu than other restaurants, but it’s nice to see something new. They only offer brunch on weekends, so plan a day off and try out this delicious place.

The Red Wagon serves the typical breakfast food you know, but they also give you the option of adding a little twist on to it. Pancakes can sometimes sound boring, but imagine it with pulled pork, and Jack Daniel’s maple syrup! The sweet and salty taste combined just perfects the entire eating experience.

Looking for a more elegant and sophisticated brunch spot? You have to go and check out Yew! Their prices may be more expensive than other restaurants, but everything on the menu is delicious!! I mean, who wouldn’t want to try a lobster benedict? Plus, if you go on a Sunday their wine bottles are half priced. Getting a nice buzz, plus good food.. what more can you ask for?

The Twisted Fork:

Twisted fork serves simple, yet deliciously mouthwatering french food! Lucky for us, they are open seven days a week. If you’re craving for some seafood in your brunch food, then you have to try this spot. Their two top dishes are  fresh mussels and smoked salon eggs benedict. Incorporating seafood into your brunch may sound odd, but it’s definitely not! Their food is just too delicious!

Secret Location:

Secret Location may only be opened on weekends and holiday, but their brunch hours are much longer than other restaurants (10 am – 5 pm). Plus, they offer a wide variety of food! There’s bacon and eggs, crepes, short ribs, smoked salon, lobster hash, and the list goes on. They also make fresh croissants, and provide organic greens. How much better can this place get?

Jethro’s Fine Grub:

You know a restaurant is good when it gets featured in the popular show “Diners, Drive-In’s, and Drives! Their best known for their pancakes, which might I add are huge! I would suggest trying their egg benny, and getting the pancakes on the side (if you cant finish it, just pack it home and eat it later!). Their food is just too good, you have to try as much of it as possible.

Catch 122:

Catch 122 serves up casual, rustic, French-inspired comfort food. They have such a relaxed atmosphere that it enhances your overall experience. If you want to try a different take on brunch food, you have to try it French style, Catch 122 truly embodies the French culture into their food. I mean, where else can you get a duck prosciutto eggs benedict?

Their truffle-lemon hashbrowns is an ABSOLUTE must try!!!!! I’ve tried a lot of hashbrowns in my life, but this is by far the best ones. The wait for this place may take a while, but it is definitely worth it. Plus, if you’re looking to eat some good chicken and waffles, then this is the spot to go. Again, trust me on the hashbrowns… you just have to try it!

Cafe Medina:

Cafe media is known for both their brunch and dessert! There’s a reason why I saved this place for last, it is the best breakfast, brunch, and lunch restaurant in Vancouver. They serve up French food, and the integration of this is just perfect! I would personally recommend the Fricassee to you – it has 2 fried eggs, braised short rib, roasted potatoes, caramelized onions, and applewood smoked cheddar with grilled focaccia.  This might all sound confusing, but once you try it you’ll know why I recommended it. After your main course, you have to get their waffles. The overall meal is just completed after you try their waffles.
