Vancouver’s Hangover-Friendly Holiday Brunches, Mapped

Stepping out for brunch after the joy / madness of Christmas with the family is kind of a no-brainer, so we’ve checked around with our best brunch spots and verified this list of nine tasty options for December 26th (Boxing Day) and/or New Years Day.

BELGARD KITCHEN

Head to the historic Settlement Building for a special New Year’s Day brunch service. From healthy bowls and veggie brunch burgers to steak and eggs and their tried-and-true Railtown Breakfast Wrap, these guys cover the whole spectrum. Bonus: loads of Postmark beers and wines on tap to help us ease into 2019.

January 1st, 2019 | 11am – 3pm

Belgard Kitchen  55 Dunlevy Ave. MAP

BELLS & WHISTLES

The brunch menu may be short but the All Day Breakfast Burger is STACKED and the beer menu is always loaded with solid and exceptional brews.

January 1st, 2019 | 11:30am – 2pm

Bells and Whistles 3296 Fraser St. MAP

FABLE DINER

This casual, super-consistent diner is open for brunch-only on New Year’s Day. Suck in one of their out-of-this-world, totally meal-worthy milkshakes and tuck into some duck pancakes with kimchi!

January 1st, 2019 | 9am – 2pm (brunch only)

Fable Diner 151 E. Broadway MAP

CHAMBAR

They’re closed for Boxing Day but will be up and at ’em for New Year’s Day. Our perennial favourite indulgence here is the fricassee of braised short ribs with applewood smoked cheddar, potatoes and fried eggs, but the menu rolls deep and delicious. Bonus: plenty of exotic beer.

January 1st, 2019 | Service starts at 8am.

Chambar 568 Beatty St. MAP

HOMER STREET CAFE & BAR

Head to Yaletown for a classy brunch in this bright and beautiful space. The menu is divided into two categories, “Eggs” and “Not Eggs”, and although you may initially scoff at the latter suggestion, be prepared to be swayed…
January 1st, 2019 | 10:30am – 2:30pm

Homer Street Cafe & Bar 898 Homer St. MAP

HUNNYBEE BRUNCHEONETTE

With their wholesome menu, endearing branding and excellent location, this new spot has quickly established itself as a neighbourhood gathering place. Hunnybee is open for both post-holiday services, and we’re excited to fork their jam and crumble-topped ricotta pancakes.

December 26th, 2018 (Boxing Day) & January 1st, 2019 | 9am – 3pm

Hunnybee Bruncheonette 789 Gore Ave. MAP

JUKE FRIED CHICKEN

Whether you’re anti-resolution or resolved to approach 2019 with a new attitude, you’ll want to go out of your way to attend Juke’s 3rd annual ‘Cluck Your Resolutions’ brunch, which goes down just once a year. Ditch a day of guilt and keep the good times rolling with a Caesar and some once-a-year chicken fried steak (pictured at top)!

January 1st, 2019 | Noon – 3pm

Juke Fried Chicken 182 Keefer St. MAP

RED WAGON

If you’re counting on feeling a bit rough and wanna keep your brunch more low-key, then roll into this East Van institution for a no-nonsense Trucker breakfast or a stack of pulled pork pancakes.

December 26th, 2018 (Boxing Day) & January 1st, 2019 | 9am – 3pm

Red Wagon 2296 E. Hastings St. MAP

YOLKS

These guys are devoted to morning meals and have developed a devoted following. Don’t sweat the line-ups as the table turnover is quick, and it’s worth the wait for one of their Bennies and some of those truffle-lemon hashbrowns.

December 26th, 2018 (Boxing Day) | 9am – 3pm, both locations | January 1st, 2019 | 10am – 4pm, both locations
