I’ve had a lot of amazing brunches in Vancouver but I think I’ve found another favourite spot besides Yolk’s. Every single time I’m walking on Main Street, I would walk pass Thyme to Indulge. The restaurant was always closed when I was there and since I’ve heard raving reviews about how amazing their brunch is, I had to find a day to try.
I went to Thyme to Indulge over the long weekend on a busy Saturday morning. Since we didn’t make reservations, my friend and I had to wait 30 minutes before we got a table. We didn’t get an actual table but instead, we were sitting at the corner of the restaurant at the high tables near the windows. The lighting was perfect and service was attentive. High tables aren’t exactly comfortable but it wasn’t too bad at Thyme to Indulge.
Considering how heavy this dish looked, the pancakes were surprisingly light and very fluffy.
The orange sauce was what made everything heavier than it was but it was incredibly delicious. There’s just all sorts of flavours here, from the savoury duck to the fragrant and sweet orange sauce.
Crab Cake Benedict
Perfect crab cakes that were placed below a perfectly poached egg. Their Hollandaise sauce wasn’t too sour and was incredibly creamy.
Since I kept eating their hash browns, I was pretty much full after eating one benny. I really liked that the brunch wasn’t too heavy and the Hollandaise sauce wasn’t overpowering everything.
Chocolate Croissant Pudding
I don’t think this was exactly part of the brunch menu but when I read “Chocolate Croissant Pudding”, there was no way I would pass on that. Instead of alcohol during brunch, we had dessert.
This was absolutely heavenly. With a bit of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of raspberry sauce, it was surprisingly not too sweet. It reminded me of normal bread pudding with a summery taste and creamy texture to it.
