BEST BRUNCH

Vancouver Magazine - - Taste -

Ur­ban-hip­ster-hippies, this way. The North Shore moun­tains are per­fect for crunchy gra­nola, so it only makes sense that Bud­dhaFull’s ( 106 W 1st St., bud­dhafull.ca) two lo­ca­tions are both in North Van. Lolo doesn’t get the same in­door swing set treat­ment as the North­woods lo­ca­tion, but the smooth­ies are ex­cel­lent and this eatery is all ve­gan, all the time, mak­ing it per­fect for a plant-based snack post- Grouse Grind. If ve­gan isn’t your scene, close by is the In­sta­grammable Lift Break­fast Bak­ery ( 101 Lons­dale Ave., lifton­lons­dale .ca), a solid spot to hang out for the morn­ing with aord­able break­fast sand­wiches (spinach, tomato, Boursin for $ 5.95) and sought-af­ter baked-in­house bread (try the milk loaf for $ 5.95). If you can’t get into Lift, try the more low-key Ta­ble 153 ( 228 Lons­dale Ave., face­book .com/ta­ble153), a new split-level (so North Van!) place still suer­ing a few teething is­sues (work on the hol­landaise, gang) but able to tri­umph with clas­sics like a giant club sand­wich.
