A lovely Sunday brunch with the hubby scoping out the hidden gems in Vancouver. Two Chefs and a Table is nestled away from the hustle and bustle of Gastown. Located on the corner of Alexander Street and Gore Avenue in a restored heritage building, this quaint restaurant presents a lot of charm.
Beautiful chandeliars provide a cozy ambiance
We are huge coffee drinkers and throughly enjoyed the french press coffee while we decided what we would order for brunch
We had heard great things about the Chicken and Waffles and I have to admit I was very tempted. However we decided to go for the Eggs Benedict and pancakes.
The eggs benedict was served on these great home made muffins, which were slightly firmer than the more common English muffin variety. The eggs were cooked to perfection and just how the hubby likes them, slightly firm on the outside and soft and gooey in the middle. But it was the ham and the hollandaise sauce that really completed the dish. The sauce had a perfect balance of flavour and not too large a portion to drown and overpower the eggs and ham.
I throughly enjoyed the fluffy buttermilk pancakes that were served with syrup and the very yummy vanilla butter.
All in all it was a great meal at a modest price. You felt like you could just sit back, relax and enjoy a lazy Sunday over a few more cups of coffee.
For those of you located on the south side of town, you can now enjoy all that Two Chefs and a Table has to offer with their new location in Richmond having been opened in November last year.
