Where to eat in Vancouver International Airport (YVR) Domestic Terminal?

My husband and I are travelling to Toronto next month. It's our first flight since our wedding in the Philippines last 2019. Our flight is at 6:00 AM, so I am looking at where we can grab breakfast before our flight.

Thankfully, the YVR website has a good list which you can easily filter. I am putting a yellow background on the places that open before 6:00 AM. Let's begin!
