While we were in Vancouver celebrating Dave's birthday with the U2 concert, we were also celebrating Mother's Day. And what better way to celebrate Mother's Day then with brunch! My boyfriend's sister-in-law had gone to Chambar a few weeks before this weekend and said their brunch was to die for. Brunch in Vancouver or Victoria is hard on the weekend because you end up standing in hour long line ups, getting hangry with no one but yourself to blame. Not only was the food amazing, you can make a reservation for brunch, which is usually never the case.
When we arrived we were seated in a beautiful red leather booth at the back where we were able to chat and feel like we weren't being rushed. My mum, cousin and I all ordered three waffles and sides to go with them. It's a fun way to have waffles because the waffles come plain with a little bit of icing sugar on top and then you can choose whichever side you'd like for $1. My mum is a little caramel crazy so she chose the three caramel options, my cousin chose berry compote like me, the classic maple syrup and dark chocolate. I tasted the chocolate and it was definitely a must order for next time we brunch there. I loved my sides because they made the dense, cake like waffles a little lighter. However, saying that, I could have probably eaten another one or two waffles (but I am always starving at breakfast time.) If you are more into the savoury breakfasts there are still lots of options for you to choose from, like the Omelette of the Day, Dave's sister-in-law chose. It varies with seasonal selections of ingredients.
Next time you're in Vancouver and don't feel like waiting for brunch, make a reservation at Chambar and order the waffles, they are a must! Chambar is located at 568 Beatty Street, Vancouver. Check out their website for their menu, https://www.chambar.com/
