Hey it’s Scott Alan,
Love this time of year. Sunday morning – a little bit of a sleep in, then… brunch!
I’m a Poco guy, so here are my Top 5 Brunch Spots in the Tri Cities:
THE BURRARD PUBLIC HOUSE – 2414 Saint Johns Street, Port Moody
A Belgian waffle or steak and eggs are on offer if that’s your thing… but I would recommend something in an egg. The Bennies at the Burrard are what dreams are made of and very sensibly priced. Last time in, we ordered the BT Bennie and the West Coast Bennie. Served with scalloped potatoes and fresh fruit. Incredible!
THE JOHN B. PUB – 1000 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam
A few people recommended their Sunday brunch buffet so I checked it out in the middle of football season. Whether you are looking for something light to start your day or to load up for a full day of pigskin watching, it comes highly recommended! Omelette bar, pans full of grub to cover breakfast, lunch or dinner cravings. Great value!
MICKY’S PUBLIC HOUSE – 170 Golden Drive, Coquitlam
A classy little Irish pub that offers great deals on brunch! 2-egg Bennie for $11? You betcha! Various skillets and omelettes on the cheap as well. All very good! To be honest though, what gets us through the door on the weekend is the Caesars! Best ones this side of Whistler and made to order for four bucks!!! Yum!
WHITE SPOT – various locations
Comfy like an old pair of jeans, you can’t go wrong with the Spot for brunch! A couple of my favourites: the Steelhead Benedict and the Cheesesteak Hash. All the traditional breakfast fare as well. Add a Caesar or some of their delicious coffee, and you are good!
CORA – various locations. We hit the one in Coquitlam at Sunwood Square, 3025 Lougheed Hwy.
French toast, waffles, crepes, omelettes, lunch items and more… but we always go for the Bennies!
The Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Bennies in particular are very good. Every dish I’ve ever ordered has come with a side of fruit that is a work of art! Seriously, you’ll want to take a pic of your plate (even if you’re not THAT guy or girl). Always busy for brunch but worth the wait!
The Gillnetter Pub – 1864 Argue St, Port Coquitlam,
Woody’s Pub – 935 Brunette Ave, Coquitlam
