10 Of The Best Places To Brunch In Montreal Right Now

The tastiest start to your weekend.
10 Of The Best Places To Brunch In Montreal Right Now

Sunday are meant to brunch, as it is probably the best way to start your mornings, and for some, a necessity to recover from the wild debauchery from the night before. I think we've all been through the struggle of finding new restaurants to satisfy our morning Mimosa and Eggs Benedict cravings, but no worries, because we've found the top spots sure to hit the spot in Montreal.

So the next time you wake up dazed and confused, searching frantically for the water you didn't put beside your bed - get up, get dressed, and indulge in some extra calories at one of these awesome breakfast nests.

1. Maison Publique

4720 Rue Marquette

Have you ever tasted something so flaky and deliciously sweet, and then topped it off with crispy, salty, perfectly cooked bacon? Probably not. This place has the best pancakes you'll ever have, and they serve it with strips of crispy bacon topped with pear butter. It's unreal.

2. Les Enfants Terribles

1257 Ave. Bernard (Also in Nuns Island and Laval)

A classic on Bernard street, this place has a warm ambiance and the setting is always full of life, no matter what time or day it is. Their brunch remains one of my ultimate favourites. "Le Sugar Shack" being one of their most popular dishes, along with the breakfast poutine. They've also got homemade jams that are incredibly tasty, and don't get me started on the tiramisu waffles...

3. Duc de Lorraine

5002 Ch. De la Cote des Neiges

They serve french pastries and viennoiserie that are a little piece of heaven in your mouth. You'll feel like you're sitting at a bistro in the middle of Les Champs d'Élisée in Paris.

4. Leméac

1045 Ave. Laurier O.

If you're been here for late night fine dining, then you won't be surprised at the level they take brunch. Just think caviar, goat cheese, and salmon madness.

5. L'Avenue

922 Ave. Du Mont Royal E.

The ambiance is chic and hip - just like its borough. Try to go early so you don't get stuck waiting in line. From the coffees, to the smoothies, to the caramelized bits of brown sugar on top of chocolate pancakes, everything there is mouth-watering.

6. Fabergé

via @ondejeune

25 Ave. Fairmont O.

You probably already know (we've told you more than once), but two words: breakfast poutine. Anything else you can take on the side, like the pecan french toast. I say side because you will probably make the poutine your main course.

7. Beautys Luncheonette

93 Mont Royal Ave.

Since i've managed to bring you to the Plateau, how can we not include our favourite old school but no school Beautys? It's beautiful isn't it? How a diner can look the same for over 50 years and still be charming (being greeted by the 90 year old owner helps). It feels like a home away from home, with the best bagels in town and crispiest bacon you'll ever have.

8. La Croissanterie Figaro

via @stdntdrivr

5200 Rue Hutchison

You will walk out of there singing opera to Figaro it's so good. Their almond butter, almond cream, almond paste croissants are so fresh it melts in your mouth. They serve cheese chaussont on the Brunch special. That's right. Cheese Chaussont.

9. L'Express

via @mtlrob

3927 St Denis

This calls for a real french experience. It holds an authenticity from the Parisian 1950's decor to the staff's fresh white chemise and bow ties. They're known for their steak tartar and delicate dinner menu, but they also serve a delicious brunch. They're open until the wee hours of the night incase you ever catch yourself craving french delicacies.

10. Café Cherrier

via @leah.mysch

3635 Rue St Denis

That little french bistro you pass by every time you drive down St-Denis, and ask yourself what the fuss is all about? It's French, they serve ketchup in a jar, and their croissants are extra hot and buttered to perfection. Just go!

A little pro tip free of charge: Consider ordering a mimosa or bloody Caesar to go with your delicious brunch of choice, because everyone knows the best cure to that wicked hangover is to keep on drinking. Cheers!
