Still Looking for Christmas Brunch Ideas?
I’ve always been a Christmas buffet brunch person, since you have a wide range of selection and more food items to choose from. If you’re like me, here is a list of restaurants, as far as I know, that are offering buffet brunch on Christmas Day. Reservations required, and some do get booked up really quickly so you may be out of luck, but hopefully this list will help give you some additional ideas:
- Cloud 9 @ Empire Landmark Hotel
- Dockside Restaurant @ Granville Island Hotel
- EBO @ Delta Burnaby
- Fleuri Restaurant @ Sutton Place
- Globe @ Fairmont Vancouver Airport
- Griffins @ Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
- Herons @ Fairmont Waterfront – (Read our review from 2010)
- Mosaic @ Hyatt Regency Vancouver – (Read our review from 2009)
- ORU @ Fairmont Pacific Rim
- Reflect @ Hilton Metrotown
- Show Case Restaurant @ Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle (Page 2)

De Dutch Savoury vs Sweet Contest
De Dutch Pannekoek House recently launched a contest, allowing customers to vote between savoury and sweet toppings in order to find the ultimate pannekoek (Dutch pancake) topping. By voting, participants will receive a 25% off pass for your next visit in January 2012, as well as a chance to win $500 De Dutch gift card. I’m certainly curious about the results of this contest!
