Medina Cafe should be your go-to destination in Vancouver for brunch and great coffee.
The place is small and does not accept weekend reservations. You will wait.
But you will be thrilled that you did.
16 oz. white chocolate pistachio mocha (CAN $4.60).
Waffle with raspberry caramel (CAN $3.15 for waffle, CAN $1 for topping).
Cassoulet -- two fried eggs on baked beans, saucisson de Paris, double smoked bacon and andouille, and grilled focaccia (CAN $15).
This was not a breakfast for the weak. You'll need a hearty appetite to finish this skillet masterpiece!
Fricasee -- two fried eggs, braised short ribs, roasted potatoes, caramelized onions, arugula, applewood cheddar, and grilled focaccia (CAN $15).
Also not a dainty breakfast by any means. There were short ribs under that greenery!
Needless to say, we were very satisfied, full, and happy when we left Medina Cafe. Go.
