___ Vegetarian Breakfasts

1. Elixir (350 Davie St): Located in Yaletown and part of the Opus Hotel, so come in nice-casual clothes. Their breakfast and brunch menus have several thoughtfully prepared items, and the general favorite is Elixir Granola (hand rolled oats, orange blossom honey, toasted almonds, yogurt, seasonal fruit). If you eat eggs, for ovo-vegetarians there are multiple omelette dishes available. If you drink it, the coffee is top notch!

2. Grub: (4328 Main St.): There’s a strong choice here for vegetarian and vegan options! The place is clean, affordable and it has very good coffee. An example of a recent vegan breakfast was an herbed savory crepe with mashed potato, mushrooms and rosemary applesauce. Grub on Main, Vancouver Menu.

3. Rhizome is at 317 E. Broadway. Try their Tofu Scramble: “Golden miso tofu with roasted red peppers, onions and zucchini, served with corn muffins”. Rhizome, Vancouver BC menu.

4. Alibi Room: This is a spacious place with friendly service and with really good coffee, but breakfast is served only on week-ends. Try the mouth-watering French toast made with brie and strawberries. You will remember it! The Alibi Room, Vancouver, BC

5. The Templeton: This place is very veggie friendly and even offers veggie bacon, if you desire it. This is a cute little diner on Granville St., and the service is always efficient and friendly. The Templeton, Vancouver, BC

6. Medina Cafe (556 Beatty St): Unless you are a lacto-ovo vegetarian, you should know they serve a lot of egg dishes! If you are vegan, you’ll be having fruit salad and waffles, which are Belgian-style. They come with unique toppings like milk chocolate lavender, and are delicious. Great coffee, too!
