Nelson the Seagull bakes the best bread I’ve ever tasted. For that reason, admired cafe and bakery, Nelson the Seagull, is my favourite place to eat in Vancouver.
I first fell in love with Nelson the Seagull’s daily brunch and could easily eat it every single day for the rest of my life. If you go I suggest ordering the poached eggs – it’s two eggs a top two toasted slices of artisanal sourdough bread, with an avocado pear, roasted tomato, a handful of leafy greens and be sure to sip one of their delicious hand pulled macchiatos on the side.
If it’s a casual daytime date, lunch meeting or solo brunch mission – Nelson the Seagull and its South African aesthetic and charm presents simple, mostly organic, comforting food.
Try their Avocado and Toast, Salted Peanut Butter Cup, Rusks, Herbivore or Carnivore Sandwich, Picnic Board, Vegan Soup, and always their Bread – (I’d bring a loaf home, as a host/hostess gift, or on any weekend getaway in the woods).
