Sunday morning Breakfast with a picky Aunt - Vancouver

starlady Apr 9, 2008 12:32 PM

I have my aunt it town for a whopping 36 hours this weekend and I can deal with her for lunch nad dinner but we need to get her fed Sunday morning before she flies home, her flight is at 12:15

She is a picky and totally unadventureous eater, and she refuses to let me cook. She thinks that taking me out all the time while she is here is a treat. and she will never be made to understand that sometimes I would rather cook for her. Anyway...

I'm in the Main st Area and should prolly keep fairly close to that as I have to get her to the airport 11ish.

Unless there is anything near the airport that you can recommend :) Or on the way to the airport.

She is a Whitespot, Denny's (blech) kind of person, but I would rather avoid those places if possible.

Anything would help!!!!!

    Crave opens at 9am Sunday. The Whip opens at 10am. I don't know what time Slickety Jim's opens - but that's another good option. Crave would be my top choice amongst the three I mentioned.

        There is also the Dutch Wooden Shoe on Cambie/12th area. Very much like the Pannekoek House and open early too. Nothing fancy, but something better than Whitespot/Denny's.
