- Sunday Brunch at Griffins Restaurant in the Hotel Vancouver
notes from Mom
The Hotel Vancouver
Our family enjoys eating out on Sunday mornings. On really special
occasions we go to Griffins Restaurant at The Vancouver Hotel. They
have a lot of different foods to pick from. I can remember eating
deep-fried calamari, pan-fried trout, scallop and prawn noodle salad, and,
of course I can't forget Nate's favourite, bacon, and Jen's, sausages.
Kelvin enjoys meat, so he like to sample dishes like rack of lamb, roast
pork and chicken.
But the desserts are what I enjoy the most. It's every sweet-tooth's dream: profiteroles, rice pudding, mango mousse cake, cheesecake, fruit flan. Nathan's favourite is the Jell-O, and Jen likes the jellybeans. (Griffins has a small table set aside with goodies for children). On Sundays they have freshly squeezed juices (included in the price). If you're not up to a gourmand feast, you can order off the menu.
Age group: All ages. We've been going for a number of years and they've always been accommodating to our children.
Fairly pricey, but worth it. Adults eat for $25.95 and children under
five years are free. Those between 5 and 12 are half price.
: The Hotel Vancouver is in the middle of town, so parking is expensive (to the tune of $1.50 per half hour at the hotel). You can find cheaper parking if you're willing to walk.
The bigger, more consequential problem is that of over-eating. I can't resist the desserts. Luckily, nobody is counting how many you eat. I never eat dinner after indulging in the brunch at Griffins.
Details: The Hotel Vancouver ((604) 684-3131) is located on the corner of Georgia and Hornby Street. Griffins faces Hornby Street across from the Vancouver Art Gallery. Sunday Brunch begins at 11:30 am and goes until 2:30 pm (or 3:00). They also have a weekday brunch and afternoon tea.
