Early breakfast in downtown area

Hey folks,
I need suggestions for an early morning breakfast in the downtown area before getting on a train to Vancouver. I'm not a sweets kind of person, and I'd like to maximize my eating opportunities. I thought of Le Pichet, but they only open at 8 AM and the train leaves at 7:40 AM. If all else fails, I'll get some sliced meats at Salumi the day before and some bread and cheese (suggestions?) to take on the train with me.

I'm totally fine with "lunch" foods (chowders, soups, sandwiches) if there are any that are available and open that early.

  1. Tom Douglas' Lola serves a great breakfast and they are open at 6 am:

      Thanks! It looked like a great option. Unfortunately, I didn't get my act together this morning -- I would have had to get there at 6 AM sharp to still get to the train in time. Instead, I picked up some freshly made dimsum at Dimsum King on Jackson (just north of the Bank of America) -- shumai, shrimp dumplings, preserved egg porridge, and pork buns that I enjoyed on the train. I want to go to Lola for breakfast though -- the octopus looks interesting. :)

        I am glad you found some good eats in the Int'l District to bring aboard the train. Enjoy Vancouver!
