Christmas in Vancouver
My pick would be Chez Meme Baguette Bistro at MacDonald & Hastings for lunch on Monday Dec. 23, HOWEVER the couple that runs the bistro are very family orientated and I recall them closing the restaurant down during their kids break from school so they may not be opened.
About a 10 minute drive West along Hastings is Red Wagon, Tacofino Commissary and Campagnolo Roma (Hastings & Nanaimo) which all should be open for Sunday Brunch on Dec 22.
+1 on Chez Meme. It's a real shame they don't serve dinners anymore :-(
In the same 'hood is The Pear Tree, very well respected establishment:
But they're dinner service only, but just in case you change plans.
For some sweets & treats, try Chez Christophe Chocolaterie and Patisserie:
Or Glenburn Soda Fountain & Confectionery:

Heard good things about Broken Rice and Take Sushi.
