Jam Cafe Beatty Vancouver quietly open doors recently at the old Cafe Medina location at 556 Beatty Street. Line ups start at 30 minutes without a grand opening party or media event. If you jam is brunch, there are over 7 types of egg benny, red velvet pancakes and veggie and charlie bowls that’s bigger than your head! Shock factor alone will make you wait patiently for your meal. Plus, you won’t need to take a ferry to try it! Why not?!
The breakfast diner is very Canadian with moose antlers, baseball catcher’s mask, vintage items sourced from Victoria, a periodic table with brunch staples on the wall. Owners Jim Walmsley and Mike Deas-Dawlish has put a lot of renovation work into the space. You can barely trace it’s previous predecessors here.
My morning wake up calls for an Americano. Straight up with a touch of cream. Brewed with JJ Beans coffee beans.
Breakfast Jam 🍳🍰 cake and veggie bowls bigger than your head with a side of good company. If your looking for a decadent morning, the red velvet pancakes with a drizzle of cream cheese icing is calling your name. 〰👻 instanomss . . . . . #instanomss #onthetable #mycommontable #dessert #tablesituation #美味しい #おいしい #tcmlivingwell #hypefeast
Red Velvet Pancakes 13.95: A decadent red velvet pancake that isn’t too sweet. Drizzled with cream cheese icing. Remember to ask for extra icing! Otherwise, it gets kind of dry. Or I would recommend asking for some pancake syrup. The two also goes well together.
Little Veggie Bowl 12: The name is a little deceiving. We originally pictured a glorious salad bowl filled with seasonal greens. Instead this is a hash brown bowl. Hash with crumbled biscuits, hash browns (of course), peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, cheddar cheese topped with mushroom gravy then topped with two sunny side up eggs. Order the small bowl if you are planning on eating this yourself. Sharing between less than three people, don’t even think about getting the big boy.
There are so many other things I want to try here at Jam Cafe Beatty – there just isn’t enough stomach space. I have to remember to wear stretchy pants and book five workout classes right after. I’m looking forward to the Steelhead Benedict (two poached eggs, smoked Steelhead salmon with classic hollandaise over a toasted english muffin. Topped with capers & green onion); Fried Chicken Benedict (two poached eggs, whole fried chicken breast, classic hollandaise topped with roasted corn salsa over a toasted english muffin); and Chicken N’ Waffles (waffle topped with a boneless buttermilk fried chicken breast, house made pork gravy, a sunny side egg, and green onions).
I’m greedy like that. Yup.
