It’s no secret that Vancouver is seriously into brunch.

Whether it’s a quick over the counter avo toast or a four-course mid-morning feast with glass upon glass of mimosas, this city has enough brunches to fill up your weekends this month about 100 times over.

Aleph Middle Eastern Eatery

This East Van spot makes an absolutely killer Middle East meets West Coast brunch, and they serve it five days a week. You’ll find a lot of savoury items on the menu like the delicious crispy potatoes, lentil rice, shakshuka, and Persian-style grilled cheese made from Grilled Halloumi and Fig Jam sandwich among some unreal sweet stuff too.

Some of those dishes include pancakes with apricot jam and the stellar Arabic Coffee.

Must-tries? Definitely the breakfast ramen, and the bao bennies – both fun combos of Eastern cuisine and classic Western breakfast dishes.

There will also be a tailored drink menu including offerings like the Komosa (kombucha mimosa) and the strawberry pistachio frozen cocktail, alongside this spot’s signature gyoza and ramen.

Juke Fried Chicken

Take everything you thought you knew about a hangover-curing brunch and throw it out the window – this one is the best ever.

There are no vegetarian options here (not that we’d expect that from Juke), just glorious fried chicken, sausage gravy, and honey-smoked ham.

Carbs are at the forefront of this spread. Juke’s fresh biscuits, waffles, and drool-worthy breakfast sandwich are all must-tries. If you’re super hungry get the chicken fried steak, and we’d also recommend getting a Caesar, likely one of the best ones you’ll have had in a while.

Address: 182 Keefer Street, Vancouver
Phone: 604-336-5853
Brunch hours: Weekends from 10 am to 3 pm
