There’s nothing fancy about bacon and eggs at the Blarney Stone. But then again, there’s nothing fancy about anything at this old Gastown landmark. That’s why you go. It’s a predictable Irish bar where you know what you’re getting and that’s what the place never fails to deliver. While too many Vancouver restaurants try and work kale or quinoa into your “West Coast” eggs benny, the Blarney Stone offers a traditional plate of toast, bacon or sausage, crispy hash browns, and two eggs however you like ‘em. Nothing extravagant but always good-quality stuff . The price is eight bucks even. And that’s no blarney.
