Relaxed Gourmet
By stockex of Richmond (4 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 25, 2009 - 1:08pm [Dine in]

Brioche is a nice little unassuming cafe. I heard from a friend that their brunch was excellent so I decided to try it. I wasn't dissappointed. My ham, brie and mushroom omelette was cooked perfectly and the filling was generous but not overwhelming. The bread and fruit were fresh. I liked that they drizzled olive oil on the sourdough; it made for lighter fare than slabbing on butter. When I ordered a macchiato, the woman at the cash kindly asked if I knew that their macchiato was just espresso shot with foam. Apparently, she had been yelled at before by someone who was adamant that Starbucks "macchiato" was the right way. We even had a few laughs about that. I found the service to be quite friendly and homey. Our food came to our table quickly. The decor is a little random, but it sort of added to the relaxed atmosphere.

Worst breakfast
By urbanite9 of Yaletown, Vancouver (4 Reviews)

Went to Brioche Bakery to try it out after viewing the menu online. Ordered a custom omelette, and when it came out, it was runny and the toast was cold, not even warm, COLD. My gf asked for a coconut macaroon and it was hard as a rock. Could not even break it apart when i tried. Absolute rubbish. This wasn't random as the couple behind us had their omelettes remade. Will not be returning.

charging for bread doesn't equal to bad service
By jamjolly of the Drive, Vancouver (3 Reviews)

I have visited Brioche twice. Food was decent, not memorable. Service was fine. I did get some smiles on both occasions. But I have to be fair, the fact that they charge a little for bread shouldn't have anything to do with bad service, especially the intent is to let the customer know when they place their order instead of when one pays.

unwrapped food delivery?
By TCGASTROID of Deep Cove (7 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, November 6, 2007 - 12:13pm [Dine in]

our office had baking and fruit delivered which came unwrapped! ! ! ! THIS IS NOT SANITARY. When I made a comment and questioned why, I wasn't given a straight response, and felt rather brushed off. The fruit was okay, although it had shifted on the platter and I had to re-arrange it once then had left. The baking was good, but comparative to most other places. I would use them again, but only if no one else was available.

Great everything, expect when you leave your clothes will stink of grease
By jefftoews9 of Vancouver (1 Review)

I thoroughly enjoy Brioche. But I can't enjoy dine-in anymore as their lack of ventilation will lead to a strong grease smell on all of your clothes for the rest of the day.

If you want to try out this place be quick and don't spend too much time inside as the odor will quickly get the best of you.

Great take out, don't dine in
By classyeater1 of delta (2 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 12, 2008 - 4:19pm [Dine in]

Great little bistro style take out in Gastown, i always stop here after an audition for something quick the service is quick but the place is so popular sit-down eating seems like a novelty. I can't really vouch for the service since i've never eaten in but its a deli style order your food then eat no waitressing if thats what you expect. The panini's are great and the tirimisu is amazing. Quick, cheap and gourmet.

Rude Uncaring Staff
By GasTownFilmGuy of GasTown (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, September 14, 2007 - 3:57pm [Dine in]

Placed a pick-up order today and wnt to go pick it up. Got there and they didnt have what I ordered left. So I had to replace my order, and change it to something else.
Then they didnt put the salad I ordered in the bag, so when I got back to the office I had to walk all the way back.
When I got back for my salad the overweight dark haired lady didnt beleive me!
Rude Staff!!!! No service!!!!! Crappy Seating!!!!! No Air-conditioning!!!!!! Foods OK!!!!!!

Last time I go back!

Gourmet take-away
By annie of Kitsilano (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, November 18, 2005 - 11:45pm [Dine in]

This is incredibly good food. Soups are unbeatable -- made fresh with top of the line ingredients. You can't complain about service -- this is a counter service cafe, although when I'm in the shop I often see staff whisking orders off to one of the interesting shops in the area. Only complaint: food's a little salty.

Not missing much here.
By sarahmag of Gastown Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, November 14, 2005 - 4:33pm [Dine in]

I work in the Gastown Area and have gone to Brioche many times because there are not a lot of affordable cafes in the area. Almost every time I go there, none of the tables are cleared away so I usually end up having to sit at a dirty table. In addition to having to eat at a dirty table, it's a very small dining area so everyone is cramped in there like sardines. I've only had the panini sandwiches and they were quite dry on my palate. When I want a glass of water to go with the dry panini, there never seems to be any clean glasses available. I find that I have to ask the waitresses for everything, instead of having them check up on me to see if everything's ok. That annoys me quite a bit. Why should I give a tip for poor service, or service that is Non Existant?
I was not impressed.
