Best Breakfast In East Vancouver

If breakfast really is the most important meal of the day we should know the best breakfast in East Vancouver.  Breakfast and brunch are quickly becoming some of the most popular activities on weekend mornings.  After extensive review here is our list of the best breakfast in East Van (in no particular order):

Deacons Corner

Deacons Corner, Best Breakfast in East VancouverLocated on Main St. between Gastown and Strathcona Deacons Corner is one of our favourite places to go to get full!  The portions are huge, the grease is in abundance and the diner type atmosphere is welcoming to you no matter what state you are in.  A Gastown favourite for those after a long night out.  We recommend the chicken & biscuits with gravy or keep it classic with the Gastown Breakfast but be sure to get the cornbread!

El Camino’s

Save on Meats, Best breakfast in East Vancouver
If you have driven down Hastings St, you have most definitely seen the Save on Meats sign.  A true greasy spoon diner and the breakfast will not disappoint. Simple yet fresh foods make Save on Meats one of our favourites not to mention that they help to employ local Downtown Eastside residents.


Yolks, best breakfast in East Vancouver
Yolks started in East Van and because of the popularity has now opened a location Downtown and on the Cambie Corridor.  The East Van location is still the best although it will likely be demolished soon for new development so we may be forced to head West.  Known for it’s hand crafted breakfasts, fresh eggs, and delicious benny’s, Yolks will not disappoint.

Lucy’s Eastside Diner
