Weekend One - Solly's Bagels

The definition of brunch from Merriam-Webster is "a meal usually taken late in the morning that combines a late breakfast and an early lunch." But the perfect brunch isn't just a meal. The perfect brunch brings people together, renews friendships, and ignites love. The Beatles got it wrong. All you need is brunch.
I love brunch + Dave loves brunch = we love brunch
We've taken on the challenge to find the perfect brunch. Weekly we will be taking to the streets to find, eat, and enjoy the perfect brunch then blog about it.

Weekend One - Solly's Bagels, Cambie location

This weekend we headed over to Solly's, a Jewish bakery and deli with a family atmosphere. They have three locations which are all accessible via public transit. For Solly's hours of operation and addresses check out their website:

We went to the Cambie location which is at Yukon and 7th. Solly's is always busy on the weekend mornings and today was no exception. However we did get a nice table by the window. The music while we were there was as it normally is, a mix of old and new, mostly jazz by Jewish artists.

We ordered our food at the ordering area then ordered our drinks and paid for our food at the till. They changed the way things are ordered and paid for a while ago. Now ordering food and paying are to separate lines and confusion runs high.

Despite the ordering issues the food was quick, simple, and delicious. Dave thoroughly enjoyed his untoasted bagel with cream cheese, lox, capers and onion. I ate my toasted mish mash bagel with cream cheese happily, and my coffee was divine.

On the right day, Solly's could be the perfect brunch.
