Sunday Morning, Brunch at Monks, Stroll through False Creek and Lots of Shopping!
The weather has been super great this weekend, so I decided I'd treat my mom to brunch at Monk McQueens. I had never gone, and I had heard so many great things about it. Plus I had an entertainment coupon for it, and I got 1,000 open table dining points!
We had reservations for 11am, and once we were seated the waitress advised us that for all web reservations, you recieve a round of free mimosas. I was going to order a mimosa anyways, and loved that we each got to have champagne at breakfast for free!
Since we were at an Oyster bar, I knew I had to try an Oyster that I hadn't tried. Normally I don't have Oysters for breakfast, but I think it's something I could get used to. The oyster selection changes daily, and I went with the Sinku $3 - served with Ponzu and lemon. I must say that I really loved the Sinku. It was very meaty, just the way I like it.
For brunch my mom went with the gluten free omelette $12 with all sorts of veggies, cheese and bacon. It also came with potatoes and fruit.
For my main, I went with their daily frittata which was Rock Crab with Asiago cheese and veggies with toast, potatoes and fruit. I loved my frittata! There was a good amount of cheese and crab, and it was cooked perfectly. I was surprised they provided so much toast! This was a super filling and deelish brunch, and I can't wait to come back.
After a wonderful brunch, I was shocked when I got the receipt - in a good day. After 2 Mimosas, 1 Coffee, 1 Tea, 1 Oyster, and 2 Brunch Entrees, my bill was only $18 + tip! Another reason why I am totally coming back here again.
This is the amazing view we had while eating. To the left is the 2 level patio thats open during the summer.

My mom and I also took the Aquabus around False Creek
The water was super green, and we even saw a seastar which is pretty rare this time of the year I think..
It was a beautiful afternoon spent in False Creek
