Taking part in weekend brunch is a decidedly indulgent and wonderful way to enjoy your time off. At Notch 8 Restaurant located inside the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, weekend brunch is a delicious affair with Chef-led action stations, hot and cold offerings and a decadent dessert bar. The brunch is available on Sundays from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm; adults $59 and $29 for kid 12 and under. Having enjoyed Notch 8’s breakfast buffet, I was excited to try Notch 8’s weekend brunch. Here is a look at my experience.
Disclosure: I visited Notch 8 as media where my meal was complimentary. Opinions are my own.
To start, diners can choose from either a mimosa or Caesar cocktail as part of the buffet.
The buffet has a variety of offerings and is organized into different sections.
The pastry section features rustic artisanal bread, cereals, fresh pastries, juice, smoothies, whole fruits as well as carved fruits. Some of the cold offerings include coconut chia seed pudding and salads (like heirloom tomato bruschetta salad).
The charcuterie section features cheese boards as well as seafood platter with hot smoked salmon, sockeye candied salmon and cold smoked prawns.
Hot offerings are aplenty and include steamed dumplings (like har gaw and siew mai), French toast, wild salmon frittata, Canadian Bacon Benedicts, Porchetta Hash and more.
At the carving station, you’ll find classic prime rib, the feature rotisserie (it was Turkey when I was there) as well as Yorkshire Pudding and gravy.
Notch 8’s Chef de Cuisine Will Lew leads a very elaborate “Eggs on Toast“ action station. The dish can certainly be customized to your liking and here is the impressive list of ingredients available:
