We love weekends. Our favourite part? Breakfast cooked by someone else and cocktails before noon, mimosa, anyone? If you’re new to the West Side, we’ve rounded up the very best brunch spots in Kitsilano so stop unpacking those moving boxes in your brand-new Vancouver dream home and treat yourself to a leisurely morning.
The Local Public Eatery right off Kits Beach is the perfect locale for hearty brunch portions and the classic brunch cocktail, Caesars served in a boot with a pepperoni stick for garnish. Local features a patio near the West Side’s seawall and most popular beach, along with a see-and-be-seen vibe with the game (whatever it may be) on at all times. Though pub-ish, kids are welcome! 2210 Cornwall Ave.
No one does comfort food like Burgoo. Their seasonal menu of “Eye Openers” (drinks) and “Belly Fillers” (food) is chock full of country-style favourites. Just like mom used to make; but better. From biscuits and pulled meat sandwiches to Caramel Apple French Toast, their weekend feasts aren’t to be missed. 2272 W. 4th Ave.
Oakwood Canadian Bistro features such brunch delicacies as smoked ham hock benedict and banana bread french toast in West Coast style. Oakwood is also community conscious, featuring an Ocean Wise menu with locally sourced ingredients that are chosen for their organic certifications, as well as participating in Mealshare. Call 604.558.1965 for reservations.
On the edge of Kitsilano and Dunbar lies a delicious destination. Featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, Jethro’s Fine Grub is certainly that: oh-so-fine. Known for their generous pancake servings (think plate-sized and stacked) featuring flavours like “Hog Tied” aka bacon filled, Jethro’s has a tasty menu that’s worth the certain wait on weekends. This gem is first come, first serve. 3420 Dunbar St and is most certainly one of the best brunch spots in Kitsilano!
