Wakey, Wakey! It's Time to Check Out Vancouver's Best Brunch

Brunch. It's that perfect in-between-meal that beckons you from your warm bed on a weekend morning (or afternoon–there's no judgement here) and it is the best way to start your day off from the grind. Throughout Vancouver, you'll find plenty of places to kick back and tuck into a tasty brunch–these should start you off on the right foot.

No visit to Vancouver would be complete without a trip to Medina Cafe for a lavender latte and a Belgian waffle topped with one of their gorgeous accompaniments like white chocolate pistachio rosewater or peach and bourbon butterscotch. For a lighter breakfast, order La Santé. This satisfying number comes with one soft boiled egg, marinated tomato salad, olive tapenade, avocado and Oyama charcuterie with grilled ciabatta.

Over in Kitsilano, The Oakwood Canadian Bistro serves up comforting dishes where everything from the sauces, breads and butchery are all done in-house. While the dishes are a joy to devour, they're equally lovely to look at. The cozy cabin-like atmosphere is warm and inviting–you may never want to leave.

For something a little more fancy, head to YEW seafood + bar at the Four Seasons Vancouver for their three-course brunch menu. An added bonus? All bottles of wine are 50% off on Sundays. Did someone say bubbles and brunch?
