You may think all of your favourite eateries are closed for New Year's Day, but you'd be wrong. A lot of food joints are taking the day off, although some venues, the real troopers, are opening their doors to let in the masses super hungover and hangry for some post-NYE grub. Rather than call a bunch of places or walk around in the cold, we've done the work for you. These ten restaurants will definitely be open and ready to serve you some delicious eats.
93 Mont-Royal W
The classic MTL diner/breakfast joint won't take a break on New Year's Day, thank God too, because their waffles and smoothies are epic.
