One of Vancouver’s favourite breakfast spots is adding another brick-and-mortar to their roster. Yolks is opening up at Broadway and Cambie in the space recently vacated by Sliders.
Yolks, who currently have the truck on Burrard and an East Hastings restaurant, will be moving into 546 West Broadway and doing a quick turnaround of the space.
The deal “kind of fell into my lap,” Yolks owner Steven Ewing told Vancity Buzz. A deal for a second location of the popular breakkie and brunch eatery had just fallen through and the Sliders space became available, and Yolks Breakfast Broadway was born in just a matter of days in October.
Ewing says the previous tenants had put a lot into the space, so the interior will be getting a basic paring back and re-arranging; the TVs will come off the walls and Yolks will have new tables and chairs, but they’ll be ready to open up as Yolks Breakfast Broadway on Tuesday, November 17.
Diners will find an expanded menu focused on their Egg “flowchart” and an exciting new Burrito “flowchart” for customized options. Additionally, the space will offer great coffee, and fresh juices (including their standard fresh-pressed apple and fresh-squeezed OJ) and smoothies.
An extra emphasis at Yolks Breakfast Broadway will be the takeout counter. Ewing says customers can place orders ahead via phone, e-mail, or the mintyfusion app, and simply grab and go from the restaurant.
Customers opting to stay and sit will find 50 indoor seats, and, come spring, an 18-seat patio, and Yolks Breakfast Broadway’s selection of cocktails, from their Mimosas or Manmosas (Beer + OJ), to bumped up coffee or hot chocolate made with their house-made Irish Cream, along with their sangria, caesar, and more.
Daily food and drink specials will also give Yolks fans something new and fun to come by and check out.
Packed up and shipped out of the address is Sliders, the build-your-own mini-burgers combo concept. They’ve been silent on social media since September, and have not made any public announcement about closing up shop after about a year in business.
Address: 546 West Broadway
Hours: Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
