slow moving today…but then that’s how Sundays should be….
We head up to the roof of the hotel as the sun is peeking out and get some candid city shots while the streets are empty. Of course we pose for a few as well. Then its out for coffee and breakfast. We had 3 potential places nearby we were considering: The Templeton, 2 Parrots and The Elbow Room Cafe…we stroll past option one it looks a bit small cramped and crowded, option 2 looks pretty chill and quiet and option 3 is known for their frank style of service. We opt for option 2-2 parrots perch and grill. The 2 parrots is got the eat in bar feel. Clean and sunny Sunday morning with only a few tables of patrons, it seemed we would be able to linger over coffee and jump start our day. The brew coffee blend the serve is good (and i should know as I prolly had at least 4 cups). I ordered the corn beef and hash with scrambled eggs and sliced tomato. T had the lumberjack 3 scrambled eggs, 2 buttermilk pancakes, bacon, sausage and ham.
The plates came crazy fast. The were mounded with pipin hot breakfast luvin. Holy moly was it good. The hash browns were crisp and brown, with big chunks of juicy corned beef. Both our scrambled eggs were light and airy with a touch of seasoning. T’s pancakes were amazing and the small bite of his seared sausage he would part with, left me wanting for more.
Besides great breakfast, the service was quick and very friendly and they didn’t mind us reading the paper and chatting for over 30 min after we were done eating. The do have a 2lb burger challenge and our server who is a Man vs Food fan, like myself, wishes she could get Adam Richman to come to Vancouver and take on the 2lb burger, she told me the plate in it’s entirety weighs in at over 7lbs.
After wards we head out into the sunlight and sort of stumble around with our full bellies. Taking picture of the city and random items. The rest of the Sunday was spent lazing about and getting some work done we both and brought with us. In the afternoon I enjoyed the hotel jacuzzi on the roof watching the sun go down, it was very relaxing. I wonder if I could persuade my landlord to put one on the roof of the garage?
My fishbowl approach to travel does seem to wear a bit on others so Sunday evening’s dinner I did not take a single photo. I can say we went to C restaurant on the water and it was amazing. If you are in Vancouver and love food, I would say at least pop in for lunch.
