This weekend we were spending a night in “JW Marriott” at “Parq”, in celebration of my girl friend’s birthday. And after a late night of drinking, we decided a light and healthy brunch at “Honey Salt” the morning after, would be the best for our bodies.

I have been to the restaurant that was stylized like a tea parlour on one side, and a pantry on the other, once before. So to read more about that visit and the setting we enjoyed in depth, visit the link below.

Honey Salt, at Parq


Today we were seated in one of the booths, the lime green leather popped against the white walls and the restaurant’s name spelled out across it in moss. The placement of our C-shaped seating was cleverly done. We were essentially seated back to back with those to the side and back of us, thus allowing us privacy of seating, while maximizing the space.

To start, we had some drinks. Whereas my girl friend kept her hair of the dog at bay with their take on a negroni, I had some green juice.

Honey-groni. Bontinst gin, sweet vermouth, amaro averna, amaro montenegro, and honey syrup. It was a lot easier to drink than a regular negroni with the sweetness of the honey.

The “Green goodness” was a pressed blend of apple, cucumber, spinach, fennel, celery and ginger. It was spicy with the ginger and went down easy with the apple and cucumber. It was a great pick me up and a nice way to start the day.

To eat I had the “BC smoked salmon board” a build your own bagel experience with cream cheese spread, a mixed salmon and green onion spread, smoked salmon, sliced tomatoes and cucumber, capers, fennel, and half a boiled egg.

From here you spread and top as you please, and as you can see I got pretty creative with it.

My guest got the “Dungeness crab goddess salad” made with gem lettuce, watercress, potatoes, cucumbers, radish, and tomatoes. It was well dressed and deliciously done. Another great healthy way to start the day.


Would I come back? – Yes.
Would I line up for it? – No.
Would I recommend it? – No.
Would I suggest this to someone visiting from out of town? – Yes.
Everything was light and breezy, a nice snack option and a great place to enjoy it at. Don’t deny your cravings.
