My last day in Canada was marked by one of the best brunches I’ve ever had.

CAFE SALADE DE FRUITS

Seeing as half of Vancouver was French, I wanted to sample some French pastries or something.  After a quick Google search of “french + brunch + vancouver” I ended up picking this place based on some Google reviews.

It is located inside the French Cultural Center in Vancouver, B.C. and is nothing more than a few mix-and-match tables and chairs that overflow into the lobby of the cultural center.  The waiters speak fluent French and approach the table asking, “Parle vous francias?”

I don’t speak French, but I will eat the food.  YUM!!!

We chose to share Moules et Frites (Mussels & Fries), Smoked Salmon sandwich in a French Baguette with a side salade, and Lamb shank stew cooked for 13 hours served with rice.  Delish!!!

Overall, A+.  I dare you not to drool and wish you were somehow in B.C.
