I explained to the server that I was allergic to dairy. she apologized and took the dish back to the kitchen. I waited additional 15minutes only to be served the... More

My husband and I happened to stumble upon Brioche while we were walking around Gastown during our visit to Vancouver. All I can say is I am so very glad we did. From the food to the atmosphere, Brioche knows how to do things right. The portions were generous with coffee mugs a sizable match. We had the best eggs... More

We absolutely loved the atmosphere, and best of all, were the omelettes we had for breakfast. The best ever! Would recommend to anyone...

Discovered this little place by accident. Its on the edge of Gastown. The service is not quite as good as some but its worth it. Highly recommend the Bean soup!

Delicious! We came for breakfast and had amazing French toast and salmon/egg/croissant. We sat near the display case mesmerized. Friendly service. At 9:30am on a Saturday, we thought we'd have a hard time getting a seat at a restaurant, but apparently all of Vancouver was also sleeping in. The crowd seemed to arrive everywhere closer to 10:30am.

My family is in Vancouver and I come back quite often for work. My boyfriend took me here for breakfast the day after he discovered this place and we loved it! I came back today for a 2nd time and breakfast was once again delicious! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. This is now my fav breakfast spot for when... More

We ran into this place totally by accident, and boy were we thrilled that we did. The food is ridiculously yummy, and the desserts were to die for. YUM YUM YUM

After reading reviews we thought we would try this place for lunch. Worst Greek salad ever! Soggy tomatoes and cucumbers. The salad was not fresh. Cream soup had way too much lemon zest and the bread was very dry (stale). I agree with another reviewer; worst meal of our entire trip.

I really wanted to like this restaurant. I liked the cool vibe, the jazz music, & the simple décor. But, the service was barely average & the food was very disappointing. I ordered the strip loin steak sandwich with wild mushroom sauce, avocado, & bocconcini . What I got was a gray slab of tough meat, a gluey sauce, 3... More
