  1. One of my mother's favourites is Glowball restaurant (Yaletown) on a sunny day. A creative extension of a traditional brunch menu and perfectly done food. The service is professional and consistently good. The covered heated patio is garden like and is great in a spring day. I took my parents there when they visited me for a workday lunch and they loved it so much they asked to go back! The inside of the restaurant is minimalist and a bit dark for a spring brunch unless you are a large party (the only table near the window is a large round group table seating around eight)
