Easter Brunch

One of my favorite meals ever is brunch.  There’s beautiful images that come to mind when i even say the word: freshly squeezed orange juice, a steaming cup of coffee, buttery pastries, a rainbow of fresh fruit, friends and family enjoying a non-rushed meal together. Ahhh…i love brunch!!

Mijune was also kind enough to add some additional tips for Easter gifting and feasting this season:

Giovane Cafe at the Pacific Rim, Thomas Haas, Beta 5 Chocolates, Beaucoup Bakery and the new Chez Christophe that is soon to open in Burnaby Heights will have some Easter Basket specials, chocolate, pastries and holiday goodies! She recommends going to those places for Easter dessert/gifts. For families with young children looking to brunch Easter Sunday, Mijune suggests YEW Restaurant. They will have an oversized chocolate bunny, a “Bunny” kids menu and candy making station on Sunday March 31! The Easter Bunny will be making an appearance so little ones would love it!

A special thank you to Mijune, Jackie, Robert and Renee for sharing your favorites with us!

Happy Brunching!
