Hands-down favourite among the judges was Café Medina, for chef/owner Nico Schuermans’s refined breakfasts with a dose of North African spice, organic 49th Parallel espresso, and the city’s best Belgian waffles (topped with sauces by pastry chef Eleanor Chow). Devotees seeking upscale Cantonese dim sum and impeccable service flock to the five Kirin restaurants (Kirinrestaurants.com), where menus are updated monthly to incorporate the freshest produce and seafood. Chuck Chamberlain and family have been serving classic diner fare at the Tomahawk (1550 Philip Ave., North Vancouver, 604-988-2612. Tomahawkrestaurant.com) since 1926. Among their claims to fame: a sizable collection of West Coast First Nation artifacts, and a gargantuan serving of Yukon-style bacon and eggs in which neither fat nor flavour is spared. Latin American flavours inspire the brunch offerings at Latitude (3250 Main St., 604-875-6246. Latitudeonmain.com). Chef/owner Lisa Henderson’s dishes-French toast tres leches with candied coconut, huevos divorciados with white corn tortillas and black beans-speak of warmer climes. The hipster quotient is high at the unfussy Red Wagon (2296 E. Hastings St., 604-568-4565. Redwagoncafe.com), where Brad Miller elevates comfort food. Breakfast is served seven days a week, but Saturdays and Sundays have the added allure of pulled pork pancakes, stacked three high and drizzled with Jack Daniels-infused maple syrup.
