Vancouver Lunch Spots
Yes we eat out a fair bit. And while it looks like on social media that we may always be together, we actually find a separate place to work/ eat most days. Sometimes (and almost always on Fridays) this also involved lunch. Now that we are back in the big city the options are endless. So this series is a round up of our favourite, unique and very diverse lunch spots in Vancouver.

My pick of the week – Tara
Small Victory – 1088 Homer Street
Small Victory Bread & Coffee is actually a bakery that is open from 8am to 6pm daily. It’s focus is fresh baked bread and terrific coffee. The small menu includes breakfast all day options and a few lunch only selections. Being a non-coffee drinker I did notice before I went in that they had a good selection of brewed teas, iced teas and tea lattes that rotates on a fresh sheet. That sold me before I caught a whiff of the fresh bread. I ordered the Breakfast Croissant which is served on a fresh toasted croissant and is an omelette, red pepper and tomato sauce, Swiss cheese and assorted greens. It was terrific and so was the Lemon Iced Tea. I will be back!
My pick of the week – Jeff
Speakeasy – 921 Granville Street
I usually try and find places that I know Tara would never set foot in (or would only if I begged) for Friday lunches. In particular because I’m usually looking for a deal and/ or breakfast around noon. Not sure why but I love eggs, bacon (umm bacon) and hash browns at lunch. They are usually accompanied with a beer which by the way is great with eggs if you haven’t tried it! The Speakeasy has a good menu and serves breakfast daily until 2pm. Perfect! I had the 2-2-2 which was two eggs (as you like), two bacon (there are other choices, but really?), hash browns (real potatoes) and toast. For $7.95 I was sold. You can view the breakfast menu here. With two bars to sit at and good (free) WIFI my breakfast (lunch) was great. I’ll be back.
