Good breakfast places in downtown?

Anyone have any recommendations for a good place to have breakfast in downtown? And please don't say Dennys!

this was mid 2000 and I'm not sure if it is still there but the Homer cafe had a great breakfast. If De Dutch is downtown that's always a great place for breakfast.

If you have a thick skin, and don't mind being insulted by the wait staff, the Elbow Room on Davie & Seymour is a must.

Cafe Medina on Beatty and Dunsmuir is not a bad choice.

Medinas is good but its not your typical "breakfast" in my opinion. But if your looking for something different then go there. Lavender Latte + Waffles w/ Dark Chocolate are the best. Getting sick of the place though lol.

Bellagio (Hornby & Smithe) is somewhat your typical breakfast. The portion is amazing especially for the price you pay.

Subeez (Homer & Smithe) great breakfast there as well.

In the summer I like to have breakfast at Milestones, but the one at Denman and Davie. More for the view then the food lol.

just glanced at the menu online, and holy crap that place is expensive.
burgers average 15 bucks and beer is 6.75? thats more than most nice restaurants. must be damn good or something.

Bump.

Guys I need help.
My colleague from HK this summer just came to Van and asked me to take him and his family out to Breakfast this Sat and Im totally stumped cause I never go out to have breakfast... I've read the suggestions above, but was thinking if there's anything else?
Anywhere in vancouver/DT. Are there any places by the water with a nice view and decent food? I mean it's breakfast, so doesn't have to be too fancy.

TIA.

Try The Dockside Restaurant at the Granville Island Hotel. Kill two birds with one stone since it's a tourist attraction.

There's also Marmalade Kitchen & Bar on the other side of the water under the Burrard Bridge. Call ahead in advance to make sure breakfast/brunch is served.

I don't like Medina, but that's cuz I went there expecting the most epic waffles I've ever had. It wasn't. It was small, stale, and not what reviews would lead you to believe. Brunch was decent, but their mediocre (to me) food combined with the hour-long queue are enough to keep me from going back.

I'd prefer milestones, personally. Breakfast/Brunch buffets at the hotels are REALLY good, but pricey. If you have time, there's a really good breakfast joint on Lonsdale just a few blocks north of esplanade. It's not downtown, but there isn't much 'walking' involved to get there if you're already downtown.

There's a japanese place around bute and robson called konbinya. Awesome little place to get some unique crepes from. Also they have those little california hand cones for lunch. this place has a pretty large selection of japanese junk food. It's not that cheap but it's got the variety.
