    What? Nothing on Commercial Drive?

  • notapennydown123

    I would say you got a few right

  • Linda Wark

    You are missing some REALLY good brunch places. In some cases I think you are hitting the “trendy” spots but the brunches are meh. We are lucky in this City to have some really good chefs who cook REAL potatoes. Agree with you on Chewies tho, those boys know what they’re doing. The District tho?? Hashbrowns from a bag??? You need to get out more 😉 wink wink

  • vanfoodster

    There are many great places for brunch on the drive, this list represents places that I had brunch in 2013, Watch for a bunch of restaurants I visit on the drive in 2014.

  • vanfoodster

    Thank you 🙂

  • vanfoodster

    It is true, you are right, there are so many more great brunch places around our city. Many of the places that I visited in 2013 which are on this list, were ones that I took celebrities too for interviews over brunch. Watch for more brunch places in 2014.

  • BCTBC

    Sadly brunch buffets are all but gone. Just The Pan Pacific, The Fairmont Pacific Rim, and The Top of Vancouver left.

  • Linda Wark

    In that case be sure to hit The Oakwood in Kits and Crave on Main St. and if you can find a decent brunch place on the North Shore I’d love to hear about it.

  • Yve Kosugi

    Thanks! Looking forward to it and Happy Brunching!

  • vanfoodster

    The Oakwood is on this brunch list post, great place, you can find it under Kitsilano. Crave on Main Street went out of business a couple of months ago.

  • Linda Wark

    Sad face 🙁 on Main St. at least there is ‘Time to Indulge’ down by the DQ!
