Little Nest (Commercial Drive)
I knew of Little Nest thanks to a recommendation by my friend Rob Cottingham. Even though I live in East Vancouver, and I do eat out a lot, I am never sure where I can go for lunch, brunch or dinner that can be kid-friendly. And given that Ianiv and Arieanna are two of my closest friends and they do have a little one, it’s important to me to know of places where we can meet and hang out. Little Nest is one of those.
Arieanna, Ianiv, Aiden and I went for brunch this morning to Little Nest. I ordered the Little Nest breakfast ($11, scrambled eggs, pesto sauce, and mixed veggies that included zucchini, tomato, mushrooms, lots of purple onion and a bit of potato), and an orange juice (adult sized, $3.95). Surprisingly (and I say this in the nicest way possible), I was shocked to find out that the scrambled eggs are as good as those from Crave on Main. Which is a lot to say.
While not extremely inexpensive, you can have brunch at Little Nest for as little as $8.00 (overall, mine came to about $18, tax and tip included). Overall, I was delighted just to have a chance to spend time with Arieanna, Ianiv and play with Aiden. As I was telling them this morning, given that my brother, sister-in-law and nephew are in Calgary, it’s almost only really with the Schwebers that I get to be an uncle while in Vancouver. And I love their little one. I have been friends with Ianiv and Arieanna even before they had a baby, so it’s nice to have the relationship evolve as they grow as a family.
I’d thoroughly recommend Little Nest for family gatherings, particularly when there are little kids involved. For Arieanna’s review on her new blog, click here.
