Vancouver: Brioche Urban Eatery

happy trio

It's hard to find a place that makes my entire family happy. Then the sister found Brioche. She took Momma GG and they loved it. Then I went and I loved it. Trifecta of hard-to-please is so very pleased.

Brioche is a cute brick-lined cafe in Gastown serving up homestyle Italian eats with a westcoast flair, and all with a smile.

It was a beautiful day when I went and the cafe was flooded with sunshine. We grabbed a seat as I reviewed the menu. I wasn't sure what to get, but I hear the salad with shrimp and the gnocchi are winners. I will go back to try those, but for this visit I followed in my ma's footsteps. She got a ham and cheese sandwich. Recall that she likes tradition over innovation. This may be why Brioche is the perfect gateway for the mother. She can get what she knows, even if it's made with things she insists she doesn't like - such as brie:

Brioche's ham and cheese is blackforest ham, brie, and portobello mushroom
You have a choice of house-baked focaccia, sourdough or baguette. If sourdough is a choice, it will always be mine. I had the daily special of an open faced veal sandwich:

Delicious. The bread is amazing, the ingredients are fresh and the flavours are good. Brioche is more than sandwiches, and with service this friendly and warm, it's become a favourite. Thus, Brioche > Finch's.
