Collin and I went walking in West Vancouver on a weekend in January, as it was supposed to be a sunny day. We planned to have brunch after walking, before he left for work. It was Sunday, so I researched where to go in advance, not letting him be late for work.

I chose The District in North Vancouver. They are in a walking distance from Seabus Lonsdale Quay station. They’re not open for lunch on weekdays, but open for brunch on weekends.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

When Collin started eating, he realized most of the waffles were hard by being overcooked. He nicely asked if it was supposed to be like that, and they apologized and took off it from our bill. He liked the side coulis, so it would have been perfect if the waffles were cooked properly.

On my Benny, there was interesting sauce on the hash. It was like spicy Mexican salsa? Haha, I wish I can describe it better. 😛

And an extra picture. They have a lot of interesting beer!

I mentioned in the previous post that Collin and I went skiing to Whistler and we had early lunch around 11:00 am. We did riding until almost the lift closing. When we got to Whistler Village, we were both tired and needed to have something to eat. It was almost 4:00 pm, so I thought this would be supper. (Well, when we got home, he said he needed proper dinner! :O)

We went to Gone Bakery & Soup, where it is close to a book store in Whistler Village.

I ordered from their lunch menu, as I thought it would be supper. And, he ordered sweet from their special.

At the end, he ate half of mine, despite he usually doesn’t eat brown rice!

On the previous day of my birthday in December, I asked Collin to have brunch with me on my birthday. I was thinking to go to Market again, as I liked them when we went on his birthday. But I also wanted to try a new restaurant. So, I chose one from my list. 🙂

Forage is a new restaurant after O’Doul’s in Listel Hotel in downtown Vancouver. They serve food using fresh local ingredients. There are bar counter and tables, and at least 30 people can seat.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

Collin had already put milk before I took a picture. 😦

My choice, Buttermilk Pancakes
(Valley Blueberries, Honey Butter, Maple Syrup)

And, some pictures of interior.

Food was good. Just small note of what I didn’t like was when I eat pancake as sweet, I don’t want to taste potatoes or bacon. (They probably use same flipping for cooking savory and sweet. I understand that, but I just didn’t want any savory taste in that morning.)

I looked at their site, and the price seems slightly up since then.
