Though it’s changed hands since Nathan Toleman (Top Paddock, The Kettle Black) originally opened it in 2010, Three Bags Full retains a distinctly warm and comfortable aesthetic and is still a top brunch spot in Abbotsford. Housed in the renovated Denton Hat Mills factory, the popular cafe seats about 130 people and sprawls over three rooms.
As is standard with cafes in Three Bags’ league, the coffee here is seriously good. The salads and soups make this a popular takeaway joint for the local office workers too.
But really, Three Bags Full is best known for the all-day brunch service. Even after years in operation, its weekend service regularly commands a queue. The kitchen keeps its produce-driven food interesting with regular menu changes. Yet some classics, notably the smashed avocado, the twice-baked French toast and the green eggs and ham maintain such demand that they’ve earned a permanent home on the menu.
