We were wandering the area near our hotel looking for breakfast and this place seemed to fill the bill. He each had a different breakfast but each was good and served nice and hot. The coffee and tea were both good and hot as well. We needed to get going in a hurry and this place answered our needs. Give... More

On first glance, it looks like an ok stop for coffee & a baked good, but I was surprised by the quality of their tortellini dish. It was fresh, authentic & delish so based on this visit, I'll be back again to try another entree!

My wife and I spent a month in Vancouver and ate a number of times in Brioche - had breakfast, lunch and dinner there (Not all in one day!). Brioche is located on West Cordova, just as you enter the Gastown district and it attracts locals, nearby office workers and tourists with its good value, excellent quality food, and it... More

Great place to go for breakfast, lunch, dinner or to pick up a coffee or dessert. Their pear torte is fabulous... it's definitely for sharing cause it's huge! Their other pastries and desserts look amazing too. I went to brioche for dinner and got their ravioli with wild mushroom sauce, it was delicious. I've also had their egg Benedict with... More

I had walked past Brioche a few times and was looking forward to trying it out. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. First of all it is very overpriced with a plate of pasta coming in at $16. My meatloaf was tasty but nothing that I couldn't cook myself and the "Carbonara" was tasteless. I'm convinced that they just used an... More

My husband and I split an omelette and french toast, both of which were EXCELLENT. Splitting was perfect was to go. It was so good, in fact that we thought their desserts must be just as good, so we bought two to take back to the hotel for later. OMG they were the worst tasting things we had ever had,... More

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.
