There was one friend whom I hadn’t seen over a year. She said she finally feels better and eats better, and she can go out, so we planned a date back in June for brunch. It used to be she was the one who always would catch new restaurants’ info, but since her info was out-dated, I needed to find a place.

I read a blog about this place, Incendio Pizzeria, saying calzone tasted good and pizza still tasted great even after it got cold. So, I chose this restaurant. Their interior looks like a bar, but they serve lunch and brunch, too. It is located in Gastown area.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

Calzone was huge! Even I couldn’t finish. 🙂 I took half home. You would need to allow 20 min or so to make this. Both pizza and calzone tasted so good. I will definitely go back there.

And, an extra picture of the restaurant interior.

Wow, it has been a year, since the last time when I went to this cafe. It used to be closed on Sundays, so it was less chance to go there. As I knew they open on Sunday now, I went there to see if they have scones. Because I had a craving for them! 🙂

Nelson the Seagull is on Carrall street in the east side of Gastown. They serve from coffee to lunch.

I bought some from their counter pastries. Unfortunately, they didn’t have scones.

This croissant wasn’t a French one. The texture is like a soft bread, and the taste has sweetness. I don’t like sweet croissant, but I liked it as a pastry bread. 😀

As the weather forecast in Whistler alpine was gusty 60km/h on one Saturday in March, I skipped to go skiing. Instead, I decided to go to Gastown to have brunch. I had some places in my list, and I chose this new place.

Rainier Provisions is a new cafe-style restaurant in Gastown, opened in February. They’re a part of Heather Hospitality group, such as Salty Tongue Cafe, Salt Tasting Room, Everything Cafe, etc. They serve from a cup of coffee to fish pie. There are vegan and gluten free dishes, too.

I ordered from their lunch menu.

Medianoche Sandwich with Kale Caesar
(Cuban Sandwich of Italian Ham, Pulled Pork, Fontina Cheese on a Parker Roll with a side of Soup or Salad)

Oh my god! This kale caesar was so good! I will repeat next time, as they have the salad without sandwiches.
