Nelson the Seagull bakes the best bread I’ve ever tasted. For that reason, admired cafe and bakery, Nelson the Seagull, is my favourite place to eat in Vancouver.


I first fell in love with Nelson the Seagull’s daily brunch and could easily eat it every single day for the rest of my life. If you go I suggest ordering the poached eggs – it’s two eggs a top two toasted slices of artisanal sourdough bread, with an avocado pear, roasted tomato, a handful of leafy greens and be sure to sip one of their delicious hand pulled macchiatos on the side.

If it’s a casual daytime date, lunch meeting or solo brunch mission – Nelson the Seagull and its South African aesthetic and charm presents simple, mostly organic, comforting food.

Try their¬†Avocado and Toast, Salted Peanut Butter Cup, Rusks, Herbivore or Carnivore Sandwich, Picnic Board, Vegan Soup, and always their Bread – (I’d bring a loaf home, as a host/hostess gift, or on any weekend getaway in the woods).
