Restaurants on Main Street

Locus
4121 Main Street
604.708.4121 http://www.locusonmain.com/
Although it's dark inside the Locus, it won't seem like that for long when the cheerful smile of the owner brightens your day. With interesting menu choices ranging from specialty pancakes to items like duck sausage and frittatas, this is not a diner style brunch. Save room for coffee -- it is possibly some of the best in the city.


The Green Room
4328 Main Street
604.688.5565
With a focus on vegetarian cuisine, the Green Room offers a mellow way to enjoy a morning(ish) meal. The menu is modest but makes up for it in great egg scrambles and feature items with a Pacific Rim fusion vibe. When you are done brunch you can always stick around for lunch or dinner too.


Sunny Spot Cafe
2543 Main Street
604.872.1816
Sometimes less is more. If you are looking for your basic bacon and eggs without all the funky frills, then the Sunny Spot Cafe might just be the answer. Friendly service and reasonable prices are sure to satisfy and remember, there are reasons why places like this have been around for years -- you can't mess with simple.


Slickity Jim's Chat 'N' Chew
2513 Main Street
604.873.6760
On the good side of kitsch, Slickity Jim's is a busy place and for good reason. Fresh takes on old favourites plus inventive creations (inventively named to boot) make for a fantastic menu. Compelling artifacts adorn the walls and the servers are friendly as the coffee is warm.


Aurora Bistro
2420 Main Street
604.873.9944
Open for brunch on Sundays from 10-2, Aurora Bistro serves meals with delicious organic ingredients and artisan coffees. Menu items like black truffle scrambled eggs and poached eggs with duck sausage might give you an idea that this isn't your average greasy spoon diner. The perfect way to start your Sunday.
