Who doesn’t love a nice brunch? I think brunch may be my most favourite meal of the day – you get a mix of breakfast and lunch and it can cater to anyone’s taste bud. It can be a light breakfast or a heartier lunch and you get a mix of sweet and savoury tastes, with drinks and dessert at an acceptable time of 10 – 3 pm.
The restaurant itself isn’t the most spacious, on a Sunday brunch day you will probably end up waiting almost an hour for even a table of two. They’ll take down your name and number, giving you a text 10 minutes prior to your table is ready. Menu-wise, you’ll be greeted with your typical brunch plates, from eggs benedict, chicken and waffles, french toast and pancakes. Under “Eggs Benny” you can customise the way you want your meal to be, from one egg to two, or maple ham, bacon, avocados and so much more. Featured here, I got the 1 Egg Sandwich for $7.50 with the Maple Ham, which comes with spinach and their Dijon, hollandaise sauce and their double toasted English muffin. I also added a side of their hash-brown patties for $4.05. Overall, I was very satisfied with my meal but my English muffin was a bit on the harder side. We also got to try some new items on the menu that Yolks was releasing the following week, one order was “The British (Columbian)”, which consisted of two poached eggs, roasted tomatoes, English bangers, shiitake mushrooms, pork belly, hash-brown patties and white bean cassoulet with sourdough toast for $18.50. A very hearty and filling meal, having a little bit of everything and satisfying all your tastebuds.
Generally, Yolks is always a hit, with delicious food and nice service. The only downside is the long wait during weekend brunch hours because many like to sit back and relax here. Otherwise, it is definitely a good place to get some brunch on the weekends, you’ll leave satisfied and happy.
