Hawksworth Restaurant – The English Breakfast
Hawksworth is a shiny restaurant located in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, sitting across from the Vancouver Art Gallery. And by “shiny” I mean the decor is filled with white marble tables, stainless steel, and coffered ceilings. At first, I thought I was a little underdressed for this place but then I noticed that a lot of the other patrons were wearing just shorts and t-shirts – probably guests in the hotel I suppose.
The English Breakfast ($22) at Hawksworth is a bit pricey… a little more than twice what “The British Breakfast” cost at The Diner. My breakfast came with sourdough toast wrapped in a blanket, just waiting to be smeared with jam and marmalade. I must admit that I much prefer this bread over the deep fried bread that I had at The Diner.
This is a very hearty way to start the day… two beautifully fried eggs with runny yolks (yet not oily), thick slices of bacon, a plump sausage, tomato, and mushrooms all served with crispy hash brown potatoes and a serving of baked beans. That rectangular thing on the plate is black sausage and a bit of an acquired taste – almost like a meaty cake.
Breakfast was good with quality ingredients and a solid execution. Service too was top notch. Was it worth the price? Well, I’d probably come back.
