Jam Cafe in Vancouver, British Columbia

Jam Cafe

If there’s one brunch spot in Vancouver you absolutely must visit, it’s Jam Cafe.

They’re known for their inventive selection of sweet and savoury brunch dishes, with incredible options like their Pork Belly Benny and Cherry & Ricotta French Toast.

They’ve also got an extensive drink menu if you’re looking to have a boozy brunch, with cocktails like their Lychee Mimosa and Spiked Iced Jam Coffee!

They have one location in downtown Vancouver and one in Kitsilano, and they also have a restaurant in Victoria!

Pro-tip: visit their Kitsilano location rather than the downtown one if you’re able to.

Their downtown location has lineups daily even before the restaurant opens (we waited almost 2 hours once), but their Kitsilano location has a lot more seating and isn’t as busy!

Cafe Medina in Vancouver, British Columbia

Café Medina

Café Medina is hands-down one of my favourite brunch spots in all of Vancouver, and you can find them right in the heart of downtown.

Enjoy a variety of European and Mediterranean-inspired brunch dishes like their Saumon Fumé and their Tagine.

Medina’s known for their fantastic Belgian waffles, which come with powdered sugar and a sauce of your choice.

They’ve got a variety of unique sauce offerings for the waffles, including their Milk Chocolate Lavender, Raspberry Caramel, and Fig Orange Marmalade!

The waffles are pretty tiny, so they’re perfect to order on the side.

LOCATION: 780 Richards St, Vancouver, BC

Chambar Belgian Restaurant in Vancouver, British Columbia

Chambar Belgian Restaurant

Chambar is owned by the same people behind Café Medina, and it’s another one of my favourite brunch restaurants in Vancouver.

Their weekend brunch menu includes a variety of delicious European-inspired dishes, like their Paella (my fave) and Ratatouille!

They also serve up the same waffles and sauces as they do as Café Medina!

They even have a super cute patio as well if you’re visiting during the summer months (or on a non-rainy day).

LOCATION: 568 Beatty St, Vancouver, BC

Twisted Fork

This warm, brick-laden spot serves up creative French bistro dishes in Vancouver’s historic Gastown neighbourhood.

Brunch is available every single day of the week, with options like their banana-stuffed brioche French Toast and their Croque Monsieur.

They’ve also got an extensive cocktail list for brunch, including some mocktail options!

Brunch at Breakfast Table in Vancouver, British Columbia

Breakfast Table

Asian-inspired brunch dishes are what you’ll find at this family-owned restaurant in South Granville.

Enjoy fusion dishes like their Chicken Karaage Hash, Sweet Garlic Miso Sockeye Salmon Benedict, or Coffee Crusted Pork Belly Benedict (which is heavenly).

They also serve up locally-roasted coffee, unique drinks, and breakfast cocktails to pair with your brunch.

Their space is also super fun and cute!

LOCATION: 3014 Granville St, Vancouver, BC

Fable Kitchen

Farm-to-table brunch fare is what you’ll find at this cozy Kitsilano spot.

Go for their Pulled Pork Johnny Cakes served on cornmeal pancakes with tomato jam or enjoy their Loaded French Toast on their house-made challah bread!

They source their ingredients locally, so their menu changes up every so often depending on the seasons.

Fable Kitchen even received a Bib Gourmand award on the 2022 Vancouver Michelin Guide, which is really cool!

LOCATION: 1944 W 4th Ave, Vancouver, BC


This stunning Vancouver restaurant is located in The Listel Hotel, and they offer up farm-to-table dishes using locally-sourced ingredients.

Most hotel restaurants tend to be pretty meh, but Forage is actually amazing.

Go for their Bison Hash with house-cured bison and IPA mustard hollandaise or their French Toast with salted duck yolk custard, house-made Nutella, and black plum compote.

They’ve also got delicious brunch cocktails, including their Forty Creek Cream Coffee made with locally-roasted Mogiana coffee.

You can find Forage in Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood!

LOCATION: 1300 Robson St, Vancouver, BC

Brunch at Their There in Vancouver, British Columbia

Their There is a casual coffee shop and all-day brunch spot with a very Instagrammable interior.

You’ll find interesting breakfast and brunch dishes like their Cereal Milk Panna Cotta, Focaccia & Hummus, and Chicken & Waffles on a cornbread waffle.

Their breakfast sandwiches are also a must-try, and you can choose between the Egg & Tomato Jam, Bacon, or Sausage Breakfast Sandwich.

They also offer up a wide selection of doughnuts and pastries, all baked fresh each morning!

Their duck fat-fried herb potatoes in their poutines are *chef’s kiss*.
