This could be the last place you would see Ex Canuck Defensemen Jeff Brown. Social which is part owned by Kirk McClean sits at one of my favorite places to eat a Sunday Brunch. We managed to get a seat inside right at the window where we could people watch the patrons of Gastown.

The atmosphere in Social is great, very clean, with a great view of Water Street. One of the fantastic things is that not many people go here so there are never lines. The thing I love is that after you order they serve you some biscuits that they made that day. On this day, we received some cinnamon biscuits, unfortunately our brunch was a little late in the day the biscuits were hard as a rock. I ordered the Salt Beef Eggs Benedict with melted onions for 13 dollars and it was fantastic, the cold beef taste mixed with the warm eggs was surprisingly great. Some potatoes were a little hard in the middle which made me sad because I really like this spot. According to my friend the coffee is good, which is a big added bonus.

The fresh baked scones with jam and butter are fantastic! But the rest of my meal at this joint was horrid - had the veggie sandwich with fries during the brunch hour and the sandwich bread ripped up my mouth (I think you know about that from a previous post), the fillings were lame and my fries were limp (which is the worst kind).

But, after reading your review I will give it another shot. You're right about one thing: it's a quite spot for brunch and that's hard to find in this town.

Love the blog - keep it coming!

I would stick to the brunch/breakfast and then specifically the eggs. I have had the lunch and I was not too impressed but the brunch was great.
