Brunch you have to try in Vancouver, BC. - Uvanu International

If you’re living in Vancouver, or you’re going to visit the city soon, these are some of the brunch you have to try.

The word brunch is formed from the union of Breakfast and lunch. Breakfast + Lunch = Brunch

As its name suggests, it is a mixture between breakfast and lunch, and not only for the food that is eaten during this meal but also for the time of day in which it happens (between 11 am and 1 pm).

Depending on the restaurant you can find different types of food and dishes. The most popular are Eggs Benedict, however, we can also find Waffles, sausages, toasts, vegetables, meat, fish or pancakes.


If you decide to try their delicious and succulent dishes, be advised you will have to wait for a while, since the rule is “First come, first served” and they don’t take reservations.

Your customer service hours are from 8 am to 3 pm including holidays. The average waiting time to be attended is usually about 30 minutes. When a free table is left they will go to the next one in the row, and once inside they will attend you very kindly.

The favorites are the Eggs Benedict, but toasts, omelet, and the Pancakes are very popular as well. There’re also some vegetarian options and salads.

The payment methods accepted are Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Debit, and Cash.
