First Taste of Brunch Vancouver

This newly opened all day brunch spot is owned by Canadian born husband Chef Ian Turnbull and his Mexican born wife Clementina Oliveras.

They have both put together a wonderful menu encompassing breakfast and lunch Mexican and Canadian favorites.

You will find quite an array of dishes from Eggs Benedicts to Pancakes to French Toast and Crepes with a variety of different toppings to provide you with many choices as well as many reasons to return for future visits. They even have Mimosas and other cocktails to add a spin to your day.

I have tried several dishes here including the Monte Cristo Sandwich which I loved, French toast with Swiss cheese & turkey. Served with potatoes and maple syrup; also loved the other Canadian dish, Crepe with apple pecan topping.

On the Mexican side, my favourite was the Enchiladas Suizas with corn tortillas stuffed with shredded chicken and bathed in green salsa and topped with Swiss cheese; followed by the Molletes – a Mexican version of a grilled cheese and refried beans on ciabatta roll with pico de gallo.

I also tried a refreshing Agua Fresca -Watermelon and Agua de Jamaica (hibiscus); some of their Oatmeal with banana walnut topping, their Mixed Berry Cakes and a Nespresso Espresso.

Brunch Vancouver is open daily 9am – 3pm and is located at 1147 Granville Street in downtown Vancouver. You can follow them on instagram @brunchvancouver
