Mother’s Day and Brunch go together like hot wings and strong liquor. That is, great. But what do you do when you live in a different city than your mom?

You go to brunch anyway! It’s the thought that counts right?

Ocean 6 Seventeen

On this cloudy Mother’s Day, we (those of us who couldn’t celebrate with mom in person) brunched at Ocean 6 Seventeen – aptly named because it’s located at 617 Stamps Landing, near Granville Island.

Despite the clouds, we decided to dine outside on their patio. The view from Ocean 6 Seventeen is great. Vancouver is a beautiful city even when she’s draped in grey skies.

The Brunch Menu is full of appetizing choices. I went with the Smoked Wild Salmon Eggs Benedict.

Ocean 6 Seventeen - SconesFrom the rich hollandaise sauce, to the smoky salmon, to the runny eggs, to the fresh lyonnaise potatoes, my dish was really delicious. The complementary scones were awesome.

At $12, the dish isn’t exactly cheap. However, considering the waterfront location and fresh ingredients used, the price is fair. Unlike many other waterfront restaurants in Vancouver, Ocean 6 Seventeen doesn’t seem to suffer from a pretentious atmosphere. Simple, fresh, and cozy are words that I’d use to describe this place. I’m looking forward to finding out what their lunch and dinner menu offer.

PS: Remember to treat your parents for breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner as often as possible, not just when it’s Mother’s/Father’s day.
