My friend and I happened upon this restaurant and was blown away by their menu. By apparence they look more like a cafe with sandwiches and muffins until you get a menu and see an extensive Italian menu with wonderful sauces to go along a wide selection of pastas. I recommend the smoked salmon pasta, excellent! Would recommend for a... More

I was out looking for a quick bite while in Vancouver, and happened upon this little cafe. Very quaint, delicious food. I had the combo: mini quiche, red pepper soup and Greek salad...I had to take some to go, but all delicious!

A small place with a family feel. Did a late breakfast there and the food was to die for and the potions were huge. Very well done and I noted a number of other dishes that also looked unique and well done. The place has a top chef for sure. Brioche is a small place and nothing fancy inside. Order... More

This is a very small cozy restaurant. The food is amazing, this place really knows how to make delicious pasta dishes! The servings are a good size. You order and pay at the counter and the staff are very friendly with the prices for the food very reasonable.

Hunting for a downtown breakfast place on our first morning in downtown Vancouver, we were about to give up and buy a coffee and pastry at Starbucks. Then we chanced upon Brioche. A very small and informal dining space, but what a chef. Breakfast was a fresh veggie and prosciutto omelet with freshly baked toast, a sparklingly fresh cup of... More

My wife and I went to Brioche a few days ago for breakfast/brunch. The place is nice and cozy, and very clean. The french toast was extremely good (way above average), the omelette was good too, while the clam chowder was just average. Everything was huge, two people can definitely eat from one only portion. I would give a 4.5... More

The smell of garlic wafting on the damp air led us to this little restaurant. We were famished, and a little unsure of where to go for a good meal, when we noticed the scent of roasted garlic. We took a back way into the restaurant, but ended up in a small, casual shop. The girl working the counter was... More

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
