The cross Canada road trip is a rite of passage. It’s something we always talk about one day doing and hopefully get around to. And when we do make the decision to do it, it’s exciting to pack up the Ford Escape, activate SYNC® with MyFord Touch to crank some tunes from your phone, and hit the open road with nothing but adventure ahead. But along the way, you gotta eat, right? And one meal we can all appreciate is this wonderful experience we like to call brunch.
So let’s take a trip across the country and see where our stomachs lead us.
Starting out west we suggest hitting up the Rain City Grill in Vancouver’s storied West End. Savour the famous egg rich french toast bathed in huckleberry and elderflower syrup and served with Chantilly cream. Looking for a twist on a traditional brunch meal? How about Dungeness crab and Saskatchewan green lentils with bacon and duck confit topped with a Poached Egg? If you’re going to escape for brunch in Vancouver, you can’t go wrong with the Rain City Grill.
Heading east to Toronto, pull up near the famous Fairmont Royal York Hotel and make a B-line to Epic for an Ontario tradition – peameal bacon eggs benedict. Or go a little fancier and order up eggs with Perth pork slab bacon in an Ontario maple shallot glaze. Even though Epic is in the heart of the city, you can still take your taste buds on a trip through sweet serenity.
We’re going to head back to BC for our next brunch and a take little trip on the ferry to Victoria to the Harbour House Hotel. If you’re looking to add some adventure to your brunch, order up the quinoa breakfast pudding made with syrup harvested from local maple trees, and topped with fresh tayberries. The Harbour House sources locally grown ingredients to ensure all its dishes are as fresh as possible.
