As versatile as it is delicious, Viva Fine Foods & Bakery is an outstanding coffee shop, reliable brunch option and great place to pick up a quick lunch.
I must admit, not being much of a coffee drinker myself, I can’t personally vouch for the coffee, but everyone I bring here loves it. For me, their daily brunch (which is a tough find in Vancouver) is outstanding. Try the smoked salmon omelette or classic eggs benny. Both are divine. For lunch, their whole line-up of paninis are delicious. My favourite is the cajun chicken, but all are good. And, if you need a treat, their cinnamon buns are to die for!
Aside from the food, the highlight here really is the staff. There are consistently smiling and will great you by name after a few visits. And, if you bring your dog, there are plenty of treats and water for your canine friend…
Viva Fine Foods & Bakery is located at 1555 Yew Street, half a block up the hill from Cornwall Avenue.
