“If a delectable brunch—home cooked or enjoyed out—makes you happy, then this scrumptious book will have you grinning ear to ear.”

- Eric Akis, Times Colonist food writer and best-selling author, Times Colonist

First, We Brunch is a visual feast and poetic love letter to eating great food in one my favourite cities in Canada. I love how Rebecca takes a contemporary look at what brunch is, and reminds us it's no longer that stuffy weekend standard, but an über fresh, casual, and creative meal to eat any time of the day, made better in the company of good friends and a cocktail. Her book goes beyond recipe sharing—it’s a deeply affectionate and personal tour of what makes great food: the restaurants and neighbourhoods they’re in, the people who cook, the ingredients, and, of course, the eaters too!”

- Jennifer Danter, acting executive food editor, Canadian Living, Canadian Living

"It is not uncommon for the newly arrived to Victoria to make disparaging comments about the lack of night life here. Though they may be right, it is important to note that just because we aren’t staying up late, we don’t particularly want to get up early. What we excel at is a nice leisurely brunch. Rebecca Wellman has assembled this fantastic book of more than 60 recipes from local cafes, bistros, brewpubs and bakeries. Filled with stunning photography and stories of the people that run some of the best eateries in town, First, We Brunch is the perfect book for any readers that love food, or need a bit of help deciding where to meet friends around 11ish." —Colin Holt, bookseller at Bolen Books - 49th Shelf

"First, We Brunch . . . would be ideal for an out-of-town friend or family member as both a souvenir and gift. Whether you’re after a quick, budget brunch, a hearty vegan breakfast, or a much-needed hangover cure, Wellman helps you choose the ideal mid-morning eatery or menu." —Read Local BC blog - Read Local BC

"This is such a beautiful book of photographs of all of the many many places that you can get fabulous brunches and breakfast in Victoria, but it's chock full of recipes so you don't actually have to know the restaurants. I think it's going to be a real stand-by on BC bookshelves for a long time, and it might tempt you to come over for a weekend to Victoria." —Jessica Walker, bookseller at Munro's Books - CBC North by Northwest

"There is so much to love about this book: utterly gorgeous photographs . . . cleverly divided sections . . . insider knowledge, meticulous research and an obvious fervour for her subject . . . This book will be the perfect reference for lazy mornings when you want to eat your favourite brunch dish without leaving the house, but you will also reach for it whenever someone asks, "Where should we meet for brunch?" It also makes the perfect souvenir for friends who have come to visit and need a reminder of why they should come back." —EAT magazine - EAT Magazine

"First, We Brunch, [is an] an ode to the city's best places to break the fast. It's an essential guide for exploring Victoria's casual café culture, whether you're shopping in the eclectic downtown core, taking in the manicured gardens or biking down a tree-lined suburban street." —Globe and Mail - Globe and Mail
