Vancouver’s Joe Fortes is one of the city’s favourite weekend brunch spots, and they sure do bring the Bennys. We’re talking Eggs Benedict, of course, in classic and creative versions, which are the star of the show at brunch-time.

The downtown restaurant is bringing back their popular Benny Bonanza promo this October, which means you can score one of three Eggs Benny options for $12.95 each.

Running Saturdays and Sundays from October 5 through 27 (and while supplies last), the Benny Bonanza this year features the following renditions of the brunch classic:

  • Pork Belly Benedict – slow roasted pork belly, house-made English muffins
  • Fried Chicken Benedict – crispy chicken, house-made hot sauce, corn bread
  • Shrimp & Chorizo Benedict – sautéed chorizo sausage & shrimp, house-made English muffins

All Bennys are served with house-made English muffins, hash browns and fresh fruit.

Joe Fortes serves brunch Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and they are located at 777 Thurlow Street in downtown Vancouver.
