Alibi Room

Was it just me, or was this the quietest holiday season ever? It seemed like Vancouver was a ghost town. In light of this, I decided to venture downtown today for breakfast, believing that it would be slow, and therefore low-key, and I was right.

Located on the edge of Gastown, the Alibi Room is rightly known as a destination for the beer lover. They specialize in pouring Pacific Northwest brews, the equivalent of the foodie's "100-mile diet". Well-suited to this function, the 100-year-old heritage building provides a great container for the large, open industrial space with views out onto the railway shipping cars and beyond to the North Shore mountains. With the community tables, this would be a great spot for a casual, large group brunch.

The menu is straight-forward - omelettes, scrambles, french toast – something on it for everyone's tastes.

157 Alexander Street
Brunch hours: Saturday/Sunday: 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Haven't been to the Alibi room for breakfast yet, but I agree - it was definitely a quiet past few weeks.
