Having first opened its doors in Victoria in 2002, this family-owned restaurant quickly rose in popularity and has since expanded with two more locations in Vancouver.

Cafe Medina

If you’re looking for the best Belgian waffles in town, look no further than Cafe Medina’s. These fresh, fluffy waffles are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Paired with their 8 famous in-house toppings, like their White Chocolate Pistachio Rosewater and Fig Orange Marmalade, this elevated breakfast staple isn’t like any waffle you had when you were a kid.



Don’t be intimidated by the long line around the block. Once you taste the food, you’ll understand why. After all, you can’t have the name Yolks without having mastered the dish, and it’s safe to say they’ve done just that. They also serve freshly squeezed orange juice, which is delicious on its own or as an upgrade to a mimosa!

Trafiq Cafe and Bakery

We know brunch is all about the food, but when talking about Trafiq it’s impossible to not also mention how friendly and personable their team is. Double that with their fresh take on meals, their famous desserts and the butteriest croissants you’ve ever tasted, we won’t be surprised if you end up here a couple times a week.

Heirloom Vegetarian Restaurant

This plant-based restaurant has carnivores and vegans alike lining up down the block to get in for their weekend brunch menu. Everything from their vegetarian take on the Traditional Breakfast to their to-die-for Truffle Mushroom Benny, there is something for every appetite. Pair your meal with one of their fresh pressed juices (the Kale Refresher is our top choice!) or a morning cocktail.
