I love my J-Girls more than anything. That’s why, when Valentine’s Day rolled around, we had to celebrate with our own Galentine’s Day brunch. We all have lots of different things going on outside our friend group, so we had to have our brunch after Valentine’s Day.
Sarah picked me up, and we made our way down to Vancouver to meet everyone else at Acorn on Main Street. If you aren’t looking for it, you could miss it. It is a small little restaurant on the corner of the street, without a lot of identifiable markers to make it stand out.
Since it was Saturday brunch, I went for a more casual look. I wore my black, biker, American Eagle jeans (similar here), with a plain white v-neck from Old Navy (here). It was a bit cold, so I also threw on my long, hooded, knitted cardigan from H&M (similar here), with my blanket Aritzia scarf (here). I also added my brand new white and pink Adidas runners (similar here).
Once you’re inside, it’s a cosy, warm place, that makes you feel at home. Acorn is always busy, and rightly so. We made reservations a while in advance because travelling with a group of six is sometimes hard to accommodate.
Sarah and I were the first to arrive so we made ourselves comfortable at the table. I’m a sucker for chocolate, so I bought all my friends chocolate hearts and placed them around the table.
When everyone arrived, we were all starving, so we got a round of coffees and ordered our meals. I ordered the Frittata with pumpkin. It didn’t take long for the food to arrive. It also didn’t take long for all of our meals to be consumed. The food was so good and so fresh. I’ve never been anywhere like Acorn before.
The six of us had a really great Galentine’s brunch full of laughs and catching up, in a really great restaurant. I definitely want to go back and try this place for dinner.
