Cafe Zen on Yew: Eggs Benny In Kitsilano

Diana Chan April 26, 2014 Brunch, Cafe, Kitsilano, Three Beakers


If you’ve been following my blog, you will know I’m on the hunt for some good eggs benny in town. A fellow reader – Joey sent in a recommendation and told me to check out Cafe Zen on Yew. Cafe Zen has been around for over 25 years and is best know for their breakfast. Especially eggs benny.


Coffee ($2.59) is required in the morning and I can’t function without it.


Whats great about Cafe Zen is that you can mix and match bennies. They just take the higher one of the price.

Peameal Benny ($10.49) on the left and Flo – Benedict on the right. It comes with hashbrowns on the side. It was pretty good.

Bennies can also be ordered singularly so if you only want one, you can get one rather than two.


Their poached eggs are uniformly shaped and I ordered mine soft and it came out perfectly soft.


Bacon ($3.29) I added a side order of bacon since I really craved it with my eggs benny. The strips are quite big and there are many strips. It’s definitely worth it.


Here’s another picture of eggs benny.


Lumberjack Breakfast ($12.99) comes with your choice of pancakes, french toast, or waffles. Then your pick of  bacon, ham or sausage. You get two eggs, and hashbrowns. The one depicted here is the french toast with sausage.


This one is the Lumberjack Breakfast but with Waffles, sausage and soft poached eggs. It’s definitely lots to eat for breakfast. Overall, the food is good and the service is great. This place is busy on the weekends but if you go around 10:30am, you won’t be waiting long. It’s nothing fancy, but it hits the spot. The best part is the mix and match bennies where you can choose two different types. Great for people who can’t decide which benny they want.
