…along with the red poppy, I almost pass for a Canadian, eh?
We slept NINE glorious hours (thank you Daylight Savings!) and groggily stumbled into Yaletown, looking for a place to eat…
…then these Cinnamon Buns caught my eye!
We couldn’t have come at a more perfect time – at 11:30 am we had our pick of seats…
…by noon the restaurant was packed, with a waiting list (they don’t take reservations)
While we perused the short menu, one of those buns from the window made it onto our table
Split immediately and devoured
Sad to say, they were not as epic as I’d hoped they’d be
Also slightly disappointing was the Wild Mushroom, Asparagus Chèvre Frittata, served with a side of greens
Not that either was bad, it’s just that they didn’t quite live up to their stunning presentations.
But both Abe and I agreed that this Brioche French toast…
…with its Maple Blueberry Compote and freshly whipped cream…
…was probably the best we’ve ever eaten
Buttery fried perfection!!!
Now this is what I call brunch.
Stellar service too!!! Definitely recommended.
A short stroll through Davie Village back to our hotel
Vancouver, I love you! Nothing is impossible here…
…even black squirrels!!!
Gotta digest and rest up before the festival screening of Surrogate Valentine tonight! And remember, even if you aren’t in town, you can watch the movie from the comfort of your own home right now – it’s on virtually every cable pay-per-view channel and iTunes/Amazon!
