Large, home-style portions are the name of Bandidas' game. This long-standing favourite of breakfast and brunch-goers -- loved for its chill vibe and eclectic dining room -- has something for everyone, including several plant-based options. Definitely order the 'egg muffins' on cornbread with yam potato hash and vegan sausage. You'll need a to-go box!

La Mezcaleria

1622 Commercial Dr | 604-559-8226 $$ | Mexican

@lamezcaleriayvr | Visit website

Arguably Vancouver’s most beloved modern Mexican restaurant, serving traditional recipes made with many local, organic ingredients. You might love the interior design (turquoise tiles, hanging fern baskets, skylights) as much as the brunch menu, which features chilaquiles with poached egg, four types of classic huevos, two huevos benedict options and fun drinks like pina-avocado smoothies and Micheladas. If you’re into mezcal, this is where you’ll find one of the city’s best high-end selections (tequilas, too).
