We’re taking a tasty tour of Vancouver’s many brunches to create The Ultimate Vancouver Brunch Guide. This week we’re tucking into simple, honest, comfort food at Deacon’s Corner.
Dishing up classic North American brunch plates blended with Southern flavours is Gastown favourite, Deacon’s Corner.
Located on the border of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, this no fuss, no frills joint offers patrons the quintessential old-school diner experience, right down to the heaping portions and the soundtrack of classic 80s hits playing in the background.
Regardless of what day it is, those who stumble upon this unpretentious greasy spoon will find a whopping selection of breakfast/brunch-inspired dishes seven days a week.
Don’t expect fancy trappings, but rather look out for sturdy, homey eats. Alongside crowd pleasing Eggs Benedict renditions, Deacon’s Corner offers Chicken Fried Steak, Pulled Pork and Grits, Hash and Eggs, French toast, pancakes, and more.
Those looking for a frightfully big feed should consider tucking into the Big Carolina — two giant pancakes, accompanied by Carolina-style pulled pork and three eggs. A Little Carolina is also available, and does just a good of a job satisfying its diner as the super-sized version.
Diners nursing a hangover or just craving a bit of grease should dig into the Gastown Breakfast. This mighty dish is composed of two eggs (any style), crispy bacon, a house-made sausage patty, beef chili or beans, shredded potatoes, and corn bread.
More obscene yet ultra-satisfying plates include the Pulled Pork Monte Cristo. Patrons who request this breakkie option are guaranteed to struggle when trying to polish off the two thick slices of French toast, Swiss cheese, pulled pork, and two sunny side up eggs, it comes with.
With a laid-back vibe, faux leather booths, fair prices, solid food options, and plenty of coffee refills, Deacon’s Corner will meet all your needs when it comes to finding a casual place to enjoy a hearty late-morning meal. Just make sure you turn up hungry!
