Eggs benedict dripping in lukewarm hollandaise get old, fast—Café Medina, with its Mediterranean-inflected brunch menu is more spiced meatballs and poached egg-topped tagine than skillet potatoes and bacon. Down the street from the Vancouver Art Gallery (stop in after breakfast), the line to get in can get long but the mascarpone flatbreads, bourbon-spiked coffee, and homemade kombucha are worth the wait. High ceilings, long communal tables, and spice-flavored craft cocktails make for a fun space ideal for a crowd.
