Seasons in the Park Vancouver is a beautiful restaurant located within Queen Elizabeth Park. Literally, you can watch the seasons change from their amazing patio. It is breathtaking to enjoy and call this place home – mountains, trees and ocean. This restaurant is great of romantic date nights! Seasons in the Park restaurant is part of the Sequoia Company group of restaurants like Cardero’s, The Sandbar, and The Teahouse.
The menu at Seasons in the Park is West Coast focused. The restaurant is kid friendly and tourist and locals oriented. I like their weekend brunch program filled with Egg Benedicts, soups, salad, burgers and pizzas.
Smoked Salmon Benedict 15: Oceanwise Seafood red onion, arugula, capers, creme fraiche, served on a potato cake. I nicely poached egg and fresh smoked salmon.
Usually there is always a daily special benny on rotation. Today’s was crab meat benny.
Steak & Eggs 23: 5oz Prime New York Striploin, chive scrambled eggs, roasted potatoes. I probably would not recommend this dish was the steak was tough and underwhelming. And everything else, I could have done without.
Caesar Salad 10: Classic Caesar with parmesan and capers. We added marinated grill chicken +6. We shared this plate of greens to make ourselves feel healthy.
We recommend parking valet for $6 instead of paying for parking in the parking lot just around the bend. Service can be slow if you are going with a large party.

L’Abattoir Vancouver is an endearing modern French restaurant in Gastown. It is located on Carrall Street, with the back of the building as part of Blood Alley. L’Abattoir meaning slaughterhouse, comes from a colorful past. The restaurant was built in the 19th century as the site of…
Au Comptior in Kitsilano seems to be all the craze lately. Brunch avec Paree style is a must. Choose to start with a cafe au lait and a pain au chocolate to slowly start your day like there’s nothing on the agenda.
Whether Au Comptior is the ‘real deal’ of an authentic Parisian cafe is debatable. Depending the time of day you may find the garcon de cafe to be either warm, friendly and attentive or borderline rude. You ask for hot sauce and you may hear ‘this is a French restaurant, we don’t have hot sauce’!
The interior is Instagram worthy with the deepest blue leather seats, long bar seats, distressed tiles and a rotating glass display nudging you with exquisite desserts. But little round tables are crowded and slightly uncomfortable especially when you have a party of four trying to share plates.
But let’s talk food. Le Brunch in particular. Food here is well portioned and rich. “How do French women stay skinny?” comes to mind. I remember reading, if you are thinking of order dessert after a full meal with wine. Your dessert should just be your glass of wine.
Anyways, we ordered and shared the following.
MANCHONS DE CANARD FRITS 10: half-dozen crispy fried duck wings. Lightly breaded duck confit wings are tender and fall off the bones.
ASSIETTE DE CHARCUTERIE 18: house and artisan cured meats and pate served with bread and gerkhins
ASSIETTE DE FROMAGES 7: three cheeses with a variety of creamy blue, brie and a sharp cheddar aged from France.
CONFIT DE CANARD EN SALADE ET SON OEUF POCHÉ 16: Shredded duck confit, potato, asparagus, frisée, poached eggs, hazelnut vinaigrette.
BURGER MAISON FRITES 16: house ground beef, onion jam, raclette. We were asked with we wanted to add foie gras for $6. We weren’t sure where the foie was added. Perhaps mixed in the patty or spread a top. Nonetheless, the burger had a juicy patty and pretty tasty.
ASSIETTE AU COMPTOIR 16: eggs cocotte, house-made sausage, bacon, country bread, potato rösti. This was perhaps our least favorite dish of the afternoon. There was nothing special to the eggs or the salty sausage.
I’m excited that Au Comptoir now opened in the Kitsilano neighborhood. West 4th isn’t saturated with French bistros and after a heavy brunch you can go shopping and walk it off.
Au Comptoir is opened by Maxime Bettili and Julien Aubin. The two had previoused cafes and brasseries in France. In Vancouver they had worked at some Vancouver favorite restaurants like Les Faux Bourgeois, Bistro Pastis, Jules Bistro, and The Acorn.

I already voted Westward for Best Date Night Restaurant because of their fabulous patio seating. I love the extra mile they take to make fresh wood-oven bagels from scratch. I love their Foraged wild mushroom frittata, Fried Pacific oyster roll with fried pickles and remoulade sauce, and Smoked manila clam dip. Their menu is Northwest seafood focused with Greek Mediterranean flavor profiles.
Stylish eatery with New American plates, craft cocktails and pretty marble bar. This place has you putting on the cutest outfit for brunch without trying too hard! The sleek dining room is also filled with seasonal menu from Chef Walter Edward making gluten free Red Quinoa & House Smoked Salmon Bowl with Poached Egg and Avocado, Meyer Lemon and Ricotta Pancake, and Herb and Goat Cheese Omelette. Bonus? Stumptown Coffee.
Lola has the best donuts shaken with cinnamon sugar and served with seasonal rhubarb jam and vanilla mascarpone. These donuts are bit sized squares and are enough for your weekend brunch. They also have a lot of great Mediterranean focused dishes. If you are hungry, I suggest Tom’s big breakfast filled with Mediterranean octopus, winter squash, leeks, fresno chili, bacon, sage, garlic yogurt, vadouvan, poached egg, toast.
The menu is sustainability and fresh focused. Everything is locally sourced within a 360 mile radius. The restaurant is cozy and has a nice atmosphere. There are also private booths for two. Order the fried chicken and waffles with crispy batter. The PB&J bon bons is also a must!
How can brunch be complete with classic egg’s benedict? Ask you server for daily benedict special. We liked the fresh Dungeness crab with spinach and hollandaise sauce. They have sinful French toasts and Dutch baby – fluffy pancakes cooked in a hot cast iron pan with your choice of sweet (fruits) or savory (bacon and cheddar) ingredients.
If you are looking for a Southern deep dish breakfast, than this hip Cajun / Creole fare is your go to place. Toulouse Seafood Gumbo, powdered sugar beignets with chicory café anglaise, oyster and bacon benedict made with two caged free eggs and creole crawfish, shrimp and andouille sausage classic breakfast. Don’t forget the Buttermilk biscuits and creole sausage gravy! Toulouse Petit also has happy hour and fixed-price menus.
Argodolce is one of Chef Maria Hine’s three restaurants that uses local and organic ingredients. Vegan and gluten free options available. I love the soft scrambled eggs with pancetta, radicchio, and basil. Seasonal fruit waffles such as toasted pumpkin seeds, candied ginger and Chantilly cream. Also, bottomless mimosas during brunch.
RockCreek | 4300 Fremont Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103, United States | +1 206-557-7532 | http://www.rockcreekseattle.com/
Solid weekend scrambles with beet hash, perfectly fried oyster benedict on a nice brioche, bacon, and creamy hollandaise sauce. Chef Eric Donnelly left Toulouse Petit to RockCreek that features global and sustainable seafood. For dessert, order a suger dusted caramelized apple and ricotta beignets with vanilla bean anglaise.
Bastille Cafe is a charming restaurant with great ambiance and seasonal menu. The décor is vintage and they have a rooftop produce and herb garden. They are consistent and have great French menu complete with moules frites, steak tartare served with truffled potato chips, croquet madame, chanterelle omelette and more.
Having a relaxing Sunday meal at Forage Vancouver was a treat itself. Despite what you all may thing, I don’t go out everyday or eat extravagant gourmet meals. Most days it consists of low carb salads, wonder soup diets and plenty of leftover food. Between work, wedding planning and…
Heirloom Vancouver Brunch time is a fairly special treat. The clean crisp white space is intriguing and cozy at the same time. I would suggest you request a seat by the fireplace or by the window to absorb the natural light. Heirloom Vegetarian offers contemporary dining…
Burdock & Co Vancouver Brunch Affair is most stimulated by a great cup of coffee. Elysian Coffee Roasters shows no mercy. With Joe by my side, we were ready to dive into Burdock & Co brunch menu. Burdock is on Main Street near Thyme to Indulge. Burdock & Co serves a casual fare. Meals made from organic ingredients by Chef Andrea Carlson. Andrea Carlson was formerly Executive Chef at Bishop’s restaurant. Dishes at Burdock are vegetable focused.
Spicy Almond Sauce, Braised Burdock, Greens with Alkaline Noodles 13 + Crispy Beef Brisket 3: Much like a bowl of Sichuan Dan Dan noodles 擔擔麵, Burdock and Co won’t burn you and leave your face numb from fiercely spicy sauce. This dry ramen noodle bowl is mild. It has a lot of textures, flavors and substances for a good bite. Add some shredded beef brisket to compliment the pickled braised burdock root. This was perhaps the best of all the dishes we ordered. Flavors good and portions fair.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Sweet Onion, Biscuit 14: This was a light dish in the sense of size. The chicken nuggets were battered with a nice crunch. Though we would have preferred a better tender chicken meat to flour ratio. The pickled balsamic onion had a tangy note but was surprised us as being served cold. This was not a welcoming contrast. In the end this dish left us incomplete.
Grilled Maple Fennel Bacon 6: The soft tender bacon pieces were thickly cut and liberally glazed. It not the thin crispy strips you are served over Eggs Benedict. Hangry* would be an understatement if Dave didn’t order this extra side to go with his lean buttermilk chicken.
*Hangry – Hungry to the point of being angry.
