One may wonder how a pub hit the “Best” for breakfast – unless you’ve been there to try East Village Pub & Eatery’s 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. early-start-into-lunch menu.

It could also have everything to do with the culinary crew’s incredible creations in making signature breakfast-plate menu items like ‘The Villager,’ which is two eggs cooked your way with a choice of bacon or sausage, and many other options like Belgium waffles, omelettes and sandwiches.

The pub has become a local breakfast favourite for its location in the heart of Eagle Ridge and attracts many neighbours south of Timberlea. It’s also a perfect place for business folk who are looking for breakfast options at their lunch meetings.

Because EVP serves brekkie daily, they stay on par with their adult atmosphere by offering the ‘Good Morning Beverages’ menu with drinks of mimosa, Morning Sea Breeze, pickled Caesar and Baileys + coffee to help complete the breakfast served in its pub-style setting.

Pub Food

Once upon a time, finding quality food in a traditional pub didn’t go far beyond the reach of some dishes of shelled peanuts and jars of pickled eggs – OK, maybe that’s an exaggeration. But there was little emphasis on meals served in pubs because people were there to drink beer and ales.

Terms like gastropubs – a concept of bringing pub culture and fine dining together – didn’t even exist until the early 90s. Today is an entirely different tale as pubs have gone a long way beyond the 1950s Ploughman’s Lunch and the plastic-wrapped sandwiches stored in the back of the bar fridge.

And roll call, East Village Pub & Eatery. The pub takes its food quality seriously - so much, they put ‘Eatery’ in its business name title.

From their signature dishes of blackened chicken and the Village Filet to their shareable meals of calamari, edamame beans, deep-fried pickles and East Coast mussels, there are a variety of dishes for all food palates for all times of the day.

With soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, desserts, breakfast and seasonal menu options available, if you haven’t come to the pub for one of these plates, EVP fans say your taste buds are sadly missing out.
