Gastown delight for plates or pastries

Brioche made a perfect halfway stop between the Convention Center and the apartment where I stayed. A hearty breakfast plate in the morning, and a sweet treat in the afternoon. Friendly and amenable staff.

Just stumbled across this small rustic artisan cafe which had a splendid selection of homemade food and served delicious breakfast. Highly recommended

A very nice little place on the outskirts of Gastown. If in a more prime location, I think it would be doing very well. Went there for a nice breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on a croissant. Well prepared and well served.

I was visiting Vancouver working on my video series and someone said "Try Brioche for breakfast." I did and remembered visiting it before. I had Eggs Benny one day and an omelette the next. Fantastic food, good value, and very pleasant atmosphere. If you are looking for the best breakfast at a good price Brioche is the place to go... More

My sister and I were looking for a local spot to grab breakfast in Gastown. After reading some Yelp reviews, we went to Brioche and my sister ordered the French Toast. It was so amazingly good!!! We shared it as it was a really big portion - and it was some of the best we ever had. The place itself... 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!
