Spinnakers Brewpub

With three waterfront patios, craft beer brewing on site, and a team dedicated to local food since 1984, Spinnakers Brewpub is an easy pick for best brunch.

Served everyday from 9 - 2, with vegetarian, gluten free, and Ocean Wise seafood dishes. Try a brick oven egg-topped pizza, frittata, great Eggs Benny choices (I love the salmon version), French Toast and more. Grab a seat at the bar and watch the action in the kitchen or enjoy the view of the harbour and watch the seaplanes come and go. The restaurant on the main level is open 8 - 11 every day for all ages, and the adult only taproom upstairs is open 11 - 11.

Almost everything is made in house, including a selection of truffles, malt vinegars (you can buy them in the shop in the front of the restaurant), and beer jellies. Their biscuits are fantastic and the breads are made with their own craft beer.

Spinnakers makes craft beer and cider, you can find the ciders in their liquor stores in James Bay and Vic West, their beers are sold at locations across BC. Spinnakers on the Fly at Victoria International Airport is a great spot to wait for your flight out of town, serving food and craft beer.

Check their website for a full menu, events (they feature daily casks), and more about the local food producers they work with. A great choice for groups and parties, don't expect a line (but the patios are busy on sunny days), and the vibe is friendly with a mix of locals and visitors. They have guest suites available as well. Enjoy a mid-week or weekend brunch, with a pint of craft beer at Spinnakers.
