Attention early risers: Brekkie is open and waiting for you to come by at the crack of dawn. They will also feed you if you sleep in, but we wouldn’t wait too long, ‘cause it’s a very real possibility that we could eat all of their chorizo bennys before you get there. Fair warning.

  • Where: 20 Westpark Link
  • When: Mon-Sun
  • Time: 7AM-3PM

Red’s Diner

Whether you hit them up in Ramsay, Kensington, or their most popular location on 4th, Red’s is an extremely solid brunch choice. Lots of people agree with us, which is why they’re usually lined up out the door… but don’t stress- they’ll serve you hot coffee while you’re waiting (and the Pulled Pork Hash makes it all worth it in the end).

  • Where: All Locations
  • When: Open Monday – Sunday
  • Time: 7 AM – 4 PM
