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 Vancouver.
If hunger strikes in the morning and you’re in either of two of Vancouver’s southern ‘burbs, Delta and Surrey, don’t worry, you’ve got options. True, you can pull in at the nearest fast food joint or big chain (and there are plenty here) but there are also some independent spots serving up breakfast.
Here are 8 great breakfast spots in Delta and Surrey.
