General Manager, Graham Racich is passionate about creating an enjoyable family experience. Local celebrity chefs Rob Feenie and Vikram Vij are also known to stop in for a delicious brunch. You know it’s good when you have other chefs as regulars!

Wedding Brunch: The Perfect Solution

You have family coming in from overseas, family staying with you while the wedding festivities take place and then even more family coming over for a reunion after the wedding day, what do you do with all of them? You take them out for a savoury brunch at The Wooden Spoon Co. located in sunny White Rock, just steps away from the iconic White Rock Beach. Pre or post wedding brunch is the perfect solution to feeding the mob during wedding activities. If you’re looking for the perfect family place with grown-up flavours and even a great kids’ room where the little ones can play while you enjoy your breakfast in peace, then this is the perfect place!

Opening its doors only last year by seasoned restaurateurs Peter Raptis  and Ray Staniscia (Sip Lounge & The Refinery), they have already made quite the name for themselves regularly seating celebrity chefs Rob Feenie and Vikram Vij. The exciting menu sports such delicious items as their famous Breakfast Poutine, a heaping portion of house cut fries, crispy buttermilk jalapeños, in-house made BBQ pulled pork, traditional Montreal cheese curds, 2 eggs, salsa ranchera and house made gravy. It’s the perfect combination of salty and sweet. As a poutine lover, I have had my fare share and this is by far my favourite!

Some of the unique features you’ll notice right away is the homey feel of the restaurant. Using a lot of reclaimed and reused materials from the old restaurant, they have given a modern look with the white walls, black chairs and minimalist décor yet warm up the room with the beautiful textures of the old barn wood panelling seen throughout the restaurant.

One of the unique elements to Chef Brad’s cuisine is that he endeavours to impart very pronounced flavours and spice, without the intense heat you would normally experience, the perfect flavours you want for first thing in the morning. Everything from the brines, the smoking, the sauces, everything they can they make in-house with their own unique twist. and their signature cocktails pair effortlessly with the menu and are sure to delight. My favourite is the Mom’s Breakfast with house-made red wine syrup with just the right amount of kick!

Why not start your day with their French Press coffees from Salt Spring Island coupled with the smoked salmon breakfast: French-style scrambled eggs, capers, chives, dill and goat cheese topped with fresh  BC smoked salmon on a buttery croissant.

If you are a breakfast lover, I know your family will enjoy the experience and cuisine at The Wooden Spoon! They are open for Breakfast and Brunch Mon-Tues from 10-3pm, open into the evening for dinner Wed-Fri from 10-10pm, then Sat 9-10pm and Sun 9-3pm.
