In my continuing research efforts of finding trustworthy breakfast joints around the Metro Vancouver area, I stopped at a Burnaby institution, the Big 6 Restaurant.
Years ago I would meet my grandfather at the Big 6 for the Trucker’s Breakfast special. Back then the special was $2.95. Now the Trucker’s Special of two eggs, bacon (or ham or sausage), hashbrown potatoes and a pair of toast is priced at $4.75. Still a pretty good value.
I was Impressed with not only the speed at which they cooked my breakfast, but also the quality. Granted this is your typical “greasy spoon” joint so I know what to expect. It was good. I like the hashbrown potatoes and although the bacon could have been cooked a little longer it was still very flavourful.
The eggs were cooked perfectly overeasy – no icky watery white stuff and yet soft yolks. The toast was unimpressive. Overall, a good breakfast that I enjoyed.
I will return to the Big 6 Restaurant which is located at 7660 6th Street in Burnaby.
