The hunt for a good brunch spot led us up Yaletown’s cobbled streets, perusing menus and scanning plates on patio tables. We eventually found ourselves happy situated on the patio at Good Wolfe Kitchen & Bar. Having never been before I was excited to cross this casual bistro off my restaurants-to-try list.
Friendly staff enticed us in, where we were warmly greeted, seated, and sipping a spicy caesar within 5 minutes. The concise breakfast menu offers sweet and savory dishes composed of house made breakfast meats and fresh-baked goods – try the croissant, it was heaven. Phil ordered cafeteria style from their sides menu, which was more expensive as all breakfast sides (bacon, hash browns, etc,) were $5. The croissant was warm and flaky and came with a side of butter and strawberry jam. The hash browns were unlike any other we’ve had, deliciously crispy golden potatoes with a crunch, garnished with green onions that could have been more plentiful.
My eyes are always bigger than my stomach, but when I saw the table beside us order a sausage eggs benedict I had to try it. The benny’s – two house made sausage patties, thick country-style biscuit, soft poached eggs and creamy hollandaise – were delicious but dense and quite filling. A hungrier me might have been able to finish both, but the Good Wolfe bested me.
