Medina Cafe in downtown Vancouver came highly recommended to us as a “must-do” breakfast stop. For most of the trip, we started the day with coffee and fruit from our hotel. It was a fantastic change to start the day with an amazing full breakfast.
It’s a busy and fun place when you walk in – buzzing with activity and great ambience.
Apparently the waffles are renowned here, but we both really aren’t into waffles. However, tons of people around us ordered them, so they must be special.
Medina Cafe also has an interesting mediterranean perspective with things that you normally wouldn’t see on a breakfast or brunch menu (like tagine, couscous or harissa). David chose a hearty breakfast of the Cassoulet – two sunny side up eggs with smoked bacon, andouille sausage, white beans, red wine and tomatoes. He completely loved it!
I chose the frittata of the day with goat cheese, sausage, greens, onions and tomatoes. It was extremely hot right out of the oven, so I gave it some time to cool before really digging in. It was delicious and David had to help me finish because the serving size is so generous.
Medina Cafe did not disappoint. It was unique and satisfying and got us fuelled up for another busy day walking around Vancouver!
