Brunch At The Beach House In Cordova Bay

I have had some suggestions about going out for a Brunch at the Beach House. They said that they could put together a GF brunch menu just for us. I will post it as soon as I get the information. Lets hope for a warm sunny day to have a lovely Brunch by the sea. Hope you can make it out for some fun in the sun.

    Hi Christine, no I have not heard anything about a GF brunch at O Bistro. I will ask Ellen about it she has so much information and we have to do an extensive check of any place we have our meet-ups. We put them through the wring you could say...:-) Thank you for the suggestion Christine.

    Hi Myrna
    Have you considered the O Bistro at the Oswego Hotel for brunch? Their GF brunch menu looks very nice. Christine

    Thanks everyone for coming out for that Delicious Brunch. Waffles out side of my home was a real treat. I hope they find it will be a go addition to their GF menu. It was so much fun just sitting and chatting the restaurant is beautiful. I hope to have another meet-up there, lets hope the sun will be out next time...:-)

    So sad ... The tacos looked so appetizing :(

    PS. Three of us shared three dishes: the pizza and Myrna's Marvelous waffles were delicious. Only the fish taco was disappointing.

    Jan, my daughter and I thought the halibut tacos could have used some spicing up for more flavour. I guess we are spoiled from having eaten some really tasty fish tacos!

    Halibut Taco did not have much flavour

    I indulged in "Myrna's Marvelous Waffles" while Mo went with the traditional breakfast. We both enjoyed our meals and would return to try out what Lynda had - the Halibut tacos - they looked awesome!

    Hi Myrna, Thanks for all the work you have put into this. So I understand, are they asking us to 'give' them a waffle iron, or 'lend' them one? I have one that is exclusively gluten free but I'd like it back. :)

    Hi Everyone, Great News...! We have WAFFLES on the brunch menu....:-) Pat the manager will be supplying the GF mix however I/we have to bring the Iron. I will go and get one today. If any one would like to donate a little money to purchase a non expensive Waffle Iron for Beach House it would be very much appreciated.
    I have to give him the number of guest by after lunch today so please RSVP asap if you are interested in joining in on the Waffle feast...:-)

  • Myrna

    I will be hearing from Pat at around 1 today...fingers xx it's a go on the Waffles...:-) Hoping that they will see it would be well worth it for them having a dedicated waffle iron and GF mix on hand for the future GF crowd...like us...lol

    If GF waffles are indeed on offer, the decision has been made!

    Sorry to cancel, but I have to work at the Goldstream Food bank until noon. Will like to go back to the Bin 4.

    Myrna, you realize of course, that you're just making it more difficult to choose a brunch item (ha,ha!). What the heck, the more choices, the better!! See you Saturday...

    Just checked in with the manager Patrice, he's going to run it by the chef's...it's sounding like it going to be a go..:-) we /I might have to supply the waffle iron and the mix however Waffles outside of my own kitchen will be Oh So Nice...:-) will know more tomorrow after noon...

    July 2, 2014

  • Ellen B.

    Thank you so much, Myrna! Please let them know that if they are willing to do so, not only will 110 GF Foodies appreciate this, but that http://www.theceliacscene.com would make a huge gluten-free fuss about this on social media, effectively driving a host of new diners to their restaurant! Go, Myrna, go!

    Waffles ....mmmm...... great idea!

    July 2, 2014

  • Myrna

    Hi Everyone, I am going to check back in with the Beach House soon. We had some one say they wanted GF WAFFLES...:-) I love my Waffles. I will be talking to Tracy the Manager to ask if we/I provide a waffle iron dedicated for us and a mix that is GF Corn Dairy free to see if the cooks could make some for us. Your feed back asap would be much appreciated as we only have a few days before it's Bruch Day. Thank you...:-)

    Hahaha...he'll be there but he's all mine!

    Two so far - Hubby would make 3. A 3.33 to 1 ratio is pretty darn good if he is looking for some female attention!

    June 30, 2014

  • Jan M.

    My hubby would like to know if there are going to be any other men attending?

    Wish I could come but I work that day. Enjoy the brunch!

    They should comp your meal for suggesting it! :)

    Great idea Ellen, I am sure if I called Tracy from the Beach House with the suggestion of us providing the Waffle Iron she would be happy to make that happen. And for me the waffle pancake mix I use GF Corn Dairy Free it's called Fearn from lifestyles...so GOOD...! I'll check it out for...

    I hear you, Christine! Shine does a GF pancake from Pamela's but on a shared grill. See http://www.theceliacscene.com/map882-British-Columbia--Downtown---East-of-Douglas.html. Manager is a celiac I have been asking them to please get a separate non-stick pan so that we would have a 100% safe experience. What do you say we buy them a waffle iron from London Drugs for $20 if they promise never to use it for gluten waffles. We'd beat the door down for this, wouldn't we!

    Disappointed in the 'brunch menu' from The Beach House! Are there no restaurants in Victoria that will do GF waffles, pancakes and/or French toast? Now that is a reason to get out and eat! Cheers, Christine

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
