While there are always new and exciting meaty brunches to try in Vancouver, there are also some solid vegetarian spots that consistently put out stellar mid-morning meals.
Here are 4 vegetarian bucket list brunches to try in Vancouver.
This Main Street restaurant should be at the top of your list for game-changing brunches. It’s a combo of amazing atmosphere, quality beverages like the Punch Drunk Brunch and the Acorn Mimosa, and some unforgettable vegetarian brunch dishes.
Two of our favourites are the kale salad made with kale salad, tempeh, smoked paprika croutons, crispy capers, Kootenay nostrala cheese, black olives, and Caesar dressing, and the frittata made from Rehoboth Farm eggs.
The best dish of all time from here (in our opinion) has got to be the southern fried artichokes, house waffle, pickled shallots, bourbon maple syrup, and mushroom red-eye gravy. Add a poached egg on top of this bad boy and you’ll be the happiest bruncher in town.
Address: 3995 Main Street, Vancouver
Brunch hours: Weekends from 10 am to 2: 30 pm
Considering it’s one of Vancouver’s favourite vegetarian joints, it’s no surprise this South Granville spot is a destination for delicious veg-centric brunch food.
The legendary Ninja Bowl is always a good choice. It’s a combo of wok-fried vegetables, brown rice, Thai chili, ginger sauce, spicy sriracha, green onion, and sesame seeds. You can also add a poached egg or tofu if you’re aiming for a vegan meal.
For sweet stuff we recommend the banana French toast, it’s banana-infused almond milk batter, topped with cashew cream, seasonal compote, and fresh banana slices.
This eatery boasts one of the best vegetarian Caesar salads in the city (and their alcoholic Caesars ain’t bad either). Made with kale, romaine, cornbread croutons, topped with crispy capers, cashew parmesan, and beet chips, add a poached egg on top and it’s an ideal brunch side.
Pro tip: If you have room, get the KFC (Korean fried cauliflower), because you will not regret it.
Address: 1509 W 12th Avenue, Vancouver
Brunch hours: Monday to Friday from 9 am to 2 pm; weekends from 9 am to 4 pm
While there are three locations of this authentic Lebanese eatery in Vancouver, only the 11th Avenue restaurant offers brunch service.
This menu offers a Middle Eastern benny of two poached eggs, falafel biscuit, deep fried eggplant, and Zaatar hollandaise, along with eats like the Batata Harra Skillet (charred avocado, green pepper, cilantro, feta cheese, salsa harra, toum), a Lebanese omelette, and Halloumi cheese.
