Nothing quite beats a bright green, deliciously ripe avocado spread thick upon lightly charred toast. Taking this refreshingly simple food pairing to another level are a bunch of eateries in Vancouver, whose renditions of this little slice of heaven are sure to satisfy any avocado craving and keep your bellies full.

Whether you like your avocado sliced, diced, chopped, smashed, topped with an egg, or paired with chili flakes, here’s our list on the best spots in Vancouver to grab great-tasting avocado on toast.

Nelson the Seagull

With probably the best avocado on toast in town, Nelson the Seagull should not be missed by anyone trying to hunt down this delicious dish. Presented on a wooden board, Nelson the Seagull serves two thickly-cut slices of house-baked sourdough bread and tops them with a generous portion of fresh avocado. With a dash of salt, a grind of pepper and a hint of honey, every bite of this gourmet toast is full of flavour and seems to be more enjoyable than the last.
