Hula Grill (Hawaii 2017): Breakfast at the Beach

Breakfast and Hawaii are two of my favourite things… put them together and I’m a very happy camper. Hula Grill is located in the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, directly above their popular sister restaurant, Duke’s Waikiki.

Cinnamon’s at the ‘Ilikai (Hawaii 2017): Guava Chiffon Pancakes

When we were planning our trip to Hawaii, the one place that I really wanted to try was Cinnamon’s. You just have to take one look at their pancakes and you can’t help but start to salivate… and I’m not even a real fan of pancakes usually.

Breakfast Table: Coffee-Crusted Pork Belly Benedict

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I love breakfast. So when I heard about a place called “Breakfast Table”, I pretty much knew that I had to come and try it out (although I was partly worried that I’d wind up in a furniture store… that’s my kind of luck).

Jam Café: Brunch

Brunch in Vancouver can be a religious event for some people… popular restaurants often draw lineups that stretch down the block. While I’ve never been one to put up with excessively long lineups, I do enjoy me some brunch.

Trattoria Italian Kitchen – Pizza for Breakfast

I’ve spent many years eating pizza for breakfast but it’s usually just leftovers from the night before and not freshly baked pizza.

White Spot (Maple Ridge) – Strawberry Milkshake

At the end of July, we made the mistake of heading out to Maple Ride for a game of paintball. After the first game (and getting shot point-blank in the heel by friendly-fire), we called it quits and I hobbled over to White Spot to drown my sorrows in a big milkshake.

Arms Reach Bistro – Coconut Curry Mussels

Back in late June, we decided to take a hike up to the very popular (read: busy) Quarry Rock in Deep Cove. We generally don’t visit Deep Cove much due to the difficulties finding parking in the area.

Besaw’s (Portland Road Trip 2016) – Croque Madame

Besaw’s, tracing their humble roots back to a beer parlor and gambling hall in 1903, has seen many iterations over the years. We headed to Besaw’s for breakfast on the last day of our Portland road trip but quickly got lost. As it turned out, Besaw’s had recently moved from their 112-year home to a new location a couple of blocks away and our GPS still had their old address.

Sweedeedee (Portland Road Trip 2016) – Hipster Heaven

It’s difficult to imagine a city more hipster than Vancouver… but if there was one… that place would be Portland. Wanting to take a trip down to the coast, we stopped by Sweedeedee for an early morning breakfast in Portland.

Cora Breakfast and Lunch (Burnaby)

South Burnaby has always had a distinctive lack of good breakfast options… aside from fast food places like McDonald’s, A&W and Burger King. Jules Cafe on Rumble is not bad but sometimes I’m looking for something a bit different.

Linh Café – Brunch

Linh Café is a cute little French/Vietnamese bistro in Kits that occupies the former Café Régalade location. In fact, the current owner, Tai Nguyen, previously worked at both La Régalade (in West Van) and Café Régalade previously – two restaurants that I’ve always been fond of. It shouldn’t be a surprise that Tai also worked at Mistral French Bistro since that was one of our fav French bistros before it closed down.

Eggs ‘n Things (Hawaii 2016) – Acai Bowl

Whenever we wind up in Hawaii, we always wind up at Eggs ‘n Things (just check out our last post on their flagship shop). They have a few locations in Waikiki and they always seem to be busy.
