All hail the All Day Breakfast Burger at Bells and Whistles. Fraser Street’s nouveau sports-themed hangout has this wickedly intense burg, made with a Maple Sausage Pork Patty, gooey American cheese, hashbrowns, an egg, and their “Secret Sauce.” It comes with a side of fries, but we totally understand if you swap those out for onion rings or garlic fries. And add a beer. You can get this burger anytime there, too.

Address: 3296 Fraser Street

Dixie’s BBQ: Breakfast Club Burger

Red Truck Beer Stop: Breakfast Burger

Beer fans, you can get this epic concoction any day, any time–it’s on Red Truck’s all-day menu. They are kicking things up a serious notch here with their Breakfast Burger. It’s a beef patty with the addition of a Nathan’s hot Dog, a fried eggs, and for some peak Canadiana by way of Britain, HP Sauce.

This destination dining darling does their magic on the weekends for the brunch set. L’Abattoir’s crowd-pleasing brunch burger is made with a quarter-pound beef patty, topped with a hashbrown patty and a fried egg–because you gotta put an egg on it. Team this decadent dish with their “Bubbles at Brunch” option–yep, champagne and a burger sounds just about perfect. L’Abattoir serves brunch weekends from 10 am to 2 pm.
Address: 217 Carrall Street

Nomad: Quarter Pound Breakfast Burger

Nomad is definitely one of Vancouver’s under-the-radar restaurants. This Main Street spot has a weekend brunch menu of modern classics, including their take on the breakfast burger. Called the Quarter Pound Breakfast Burger, this is no Mickey Dees offering: Made with truffled scrambled eggs, this big burger is slathered in a bourbon onion aioli, and topped with Tuscan kale, and comes on a buttery brioche bun. Brunch at Nomad is served weekends from 10 am to 2 pm.
Address: 3950 Main Street
