It’s Breakfast Week! We’re serving up a heaping plateful of delicious stories about the most important meal of the day–and where to get it in Burnaby.

Even though Vancouver has a plethora of fantastic brekkie spots, true breakfast connoisseurs wont be contained within city limits, and they’ll happily venture outside of YVR in order to try the best and biggest meals available first thing in the morning.

If you’re in search of a hearty brunch outside of the City of Vancouver, look no further than Burnaby, where breakfast is top-notch and selection is wide.

It’s clear that the Lower Mainland has a lot to offer breakfast lovers, so here are six must-try breakfast spots in Burnaby.

1. Chez Mémé Baguette Bistro

3. Fraser Park Restaurant

Fraser Park Restaurant has been serving all-day breakfast since opening in 1997. This spot has a lengthy menu and the prices are incredibly reasonable. The dishes offered for breakfast include a German Breakfast (along with a deluxe version of this meal complete with schnitzel and gravy). Fraser Park also offers five different kinds of omelettes including a chef special “mystery omelette”. This restaurant is big on meat, so a Sausage Sampler with three varieties and housemade horseradish is a house specialty, along with the Breakfast Roll, available in spicy, longanisa, or regular.

This retro diner serves classic all-day breakfast for both dine-in and take out guests. Get your traditional bacon, sausage, or steak with eggs, or opt for an omelette made just the way you like it. Park Crest also has French toast, pancakes, corn beef hash, and a bacon and cheddar hash brown stack. This spot is old school – meaning cash only – but you’ll get a solid brekkie for an awesome price.
