Poutine is the pride and joy of Montreal - you can't walk more than a block without seeing somewhere that serves it. And luckily for us, many of these establishments have taken the beloved gooey deliciousness one step further and have made specifically-for-breakfast poutines. You can now start your day right, with copious amounts of carbs and cheese, and you don't even have to feel bad about it.

This all-bacon bar is serving up their own creation called The Comapoutine, and trust us, it lives up to its name.
