Vancouver Eats: Downtown Brunch

If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love brunch. I love making brunch at home but I might love going out for brunch a little more. The perfect lazy mornings are for sleeping in until you wake and walking out of the house for brunch. I love savoury, fulfilling breakfasts while my husband loves super sweet breakfast dishes. I find that I rate brunch restaurants on their eggs benedict. I consider myself to be an eggs benny connoisseur, so it’s very important that I order it at least once at every restaurant.

Here are a few of my top recommendations for tasty brunch downtown!

Vancouver Eats: Ice Cold Treats

Happy Friday!

This past long weekend, my husband and I drove down to Washington and Oregon to enjoy some time together, and with family. We had a beautiful time filled with precious memories and tasty eats.

On our drive from Salem to Oregon Beach we stopped at the Tillamook Cheese Factory where we enjoyed copious amounts of cheese (including deep fried cheese curds) and Tillamook’s ice cream! We love cheese. And ice cream. In Portland we indulged in double scoop’s at Salt & Straw. And WOW do they ever do ice cream right. Maybe I’ll compile and share a “Portland Eats” list one day on this blog. 

My husband and I take ice cream pretty seriously. (This is where you laugh). I’m [really] thankful we have no food sensitivities, so nothing’s ever really avoided with us. Our friends laugh at the fact that we always have ice cream in our freezer. And it’s true. We always have at least three different ice cream flavours at the same time. Hey, I’m just trying to be accommodating.

I love summer, and what better way to celebrate summertime than with a sweet cold treat? Here’s my scoop on the best places for ice cream, frozen yogurt, frozen custard and gelato in the Metro Vancouver area.
