One of B’s friend was craving brunch so we decided to trek on over to Yolks. They’re next door to Saku and Santouka, which is only a few doors down. Their original location is out on Hastings.



We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 1:00pm) and were quoted 30 minutes. Unfortunately, they messed up how they were seating tables and our wait ended up being an hour.


I’m not a huge fan of brunch so this was almost overbearingly long. Service was excellent.


The menu is short and sweet; sweets, bennies and classics.

Chicken and waffles ($18.95)
DSC00781Belgian waffle, buttermilk fried chicken, chicken gravy, pickled jalapenos, maple syrup and two poached eggs.



This dish was worth the wait; not 100% sure but I think they gave us a generous (maybe double) portion.


The chicken was delicious; incredibly moist and juicy. The waffles were crispy. The pickled jalapeno was a perfect bite of heat.

House-cured wild BC salmon & fresh avocado ($18.95)
DSC00774Fresh arugula and dill creme fraiche. We opted for the truffle-lemon potatoes.


The eggs were well poached. Hollandaise sauce didn’t feel heavy but did thicken up if you ate it slowly. Salmon was very fresh.


The potatoes were fine but I could have used a bit more of a truffle hit.

Buttermilk fried chicken benedict ($17.95)
DSC00772Pickled jalapenos served on 1/2 Belgian waffle. B’s fried was satisfied and had enough leftovers to bring home a box.


Impressed with my first time to Yolks. If the wait was shorter, I’d be down.
