Provence Marinaside

by Lauren Mote

Finally, a brunch that makes sense.

All it took really to bring this avid diner the “brunch of brunches” was to literally walk across the street? Some would say, “..no, it can’t be…” but I assure you, although incredibly simple, the edibles satisfied my Sunday morning craving.

Provence Marinaside, brought to you by chefs Jean-Francis and Alessandra Quaglia, lies at the bottom of Davie St, just around the corner from the Yaletown Urban Fare. The decor is a little “hotel-continental”, but it worked to predict the kind of simple “hotel-like” foods that would soon be streaming through the kitchen doors. It was bang on.

The abundance of choice, meat-lover and vegetarian options alike, was astounding! How did we find a menu to cater to all of us?

To our backs, the glorious views of False Creek, and in front of us, we found our table littered with polished cutlery and china; rich dark coffee; lamb sausages & pork sausages – a sampling was required; toast, egg entrees, and salad.

Our brunch was not over the top by any means, like strawberry and squid parfait, but it certainly hit the spot, and restored our faith in brunch. It’s a true story, simple, reasonable yet satisfying brunch does exist, especially in Yaletown – with a nice view.
