Weekends are about one thing and one thing only: brunch. It's the only thing that gets me out of bed on a Saturday. In a city flooded with some of the best eats on the West Coast, where should you go? We found a ton of tasty things to do this weekend in Vancouver if you live to eat.
Let's face it — unless you're a gourmet chef most people would rather eat out than eat at home. Even if you're trying to cut back on your spending or save money here or there, you eventually will need to treat yourself to a meal someone else made.
Listen here, because that day has come. There are too many transcendentally delicious brunch spots in the city for you to be eating boxed cereal day after day.
After all, it's socially acceptable to have a mojito or an Aperol spritz at 11 a.m. as long as you're downing it with a stack of pancakes.
Whether you're looking for a little pick-me-up or a full meal that will leave you stuffed all day long, there's a place on this list you'll want to check out on a Sunday morning.
