We are on the search for some delicious breakfast joints around Vancouver Island (come on now, it's the most important meal of the day!) and what is more satisfying than a wonderful Sunday breakfast/brunch?! Now here is the fun part: we've taken some suggestions from our followers on Twitter and Facebook and compiled them here, our readers will vote and the place with the most votes we will go visit!
Over the next week we will be taking votes on which of these wonderful breakfast places we will be visiting next for a review! Thanks everyone! Tweet us, facebook us or leave a comment and let us know which one YOU suggest :)
