Paul's Omelettery

Breakfast in Fairview & South Granville

You'll be jostling for space with chatty moms at this unassuming breakfast and lunch joint near the south side of Granville Bridge. But it's worth it: this cozy, super-friendly place is superior to most bacon-and-eggs spots. The menu is grounded on signature omelets but it also does great eggs Benedict and there are housemade burgers and sandwiches at lunch.

It's a perfect place to start the day before a wander down to nearby Granville Island. But be sure to arrive early on weekends when there's often a line-up of bleary-eyed locals looking for a hearty end-of-the-week breakfast feast.
