Looking for breakfast with a view?
Look no further than the new De Dutch location at the Vancouver Convention Center. Even on a rainy day you can watch the float planes take off or take a walk on the seawall to wear off your Pannekoeken. This location is open seven days a week from 7:00am to 4:00pm. The decor is not what you would expect unless you have been to a De Dutch location before. Orange and yellow are the main colors making the room very fun and family friendly.
There is also a great patio at this location for when the weather is good. Even in the rain, the floor to ceiling windows make the restaurant brighter than most. The menu at this and all De Dutch locations is huge. Besides Pannekoeken served a seemingly unlimited number of ways there are also omelettes, scrambles, platters, Benedicts, toasties and bouncers to choose from. The menu sounds like an amusement park ride but once you do choose something you will not be disappointed. We have now visited this location twice and the location at 1725 Robson Street once and have not been disappointed. The food is a bit pricey but really good. And with the view that this location offers what more can you ask for?
The entrance way welcomes you into a world of orange and yellow. Ask for a seat by the window to enjoy the view.
The Canadian Pannekoeken ($14) has a diameter of 12″ and is topped with Canadian back bacon, free run eggs, tomato slices (omitted here because Jeff does not like tomato) and maple syrup.
The Brie, Apple and Walnut Toastie ($12) can be served on multigrain or sourdough toast (shown here) with your choice of salad, soup or chips. Go with the Kettle chips because the onion dip that comes with them is awesome and addictive! I also love that they put seasoning salt on the bread – unique and tasty.
There is also a private room that looks to hold about 16 people that would be great for a family get-together or birthday.
Even the light fixtures and divider decor stick to the orange and yellow theme.
It is helpful that the menu has a lot of pictures. There are too many menu item to read them all and understand what you are actually ordering so we suggest picking a picture that you like and pointing to it.
