Brief Description: One of the gems in the Vancouver restaurant crown. West is where local West Coast ingredients meet fine dining. Prices are high but for the service and the quality, it is not unjustified.

We were so impressed with our recent brunch find at West that we went back again this past weekend. Again, we were impressed. I ordered the West French Toast, which was a mascarpone stuffed brioche with stone fruit compote and maple syrup. Wow! This was so good. The brioche actually had swirls of mascarpone inside it. What was great about the toast is that it wasn’t overly sweet either. The brioche kept it quite balanced.

I also can’t rave enough about the small touches, such as the housemade chocolate truffles and the warm bread rolls that you receive throughout the meal.

My idea of a good start to Sunday is waking up to brunch at West, where I can stuff myself with warm, just-out-of-the-oven bread rolls and a hearty and well-excuted brunch. It is going to be damn hard to top Sunday brunch at West.

    I haven’t been there in probably a year or more for brunch! It looks a lot better than last time I went…. the french toast… YES… that’s pretty much what I’ve been looking for in the city that’s good. Alright! Must try it there soon 🙂 Thanks for the review!
