Waffles are one of those things that you see on a menu and just have to order. They're not only one of the best breakfast foods, but one of the best foods, period. Kind of like pancake's much cooler older brother, they're good when they're sweet, they're good when they're savoury, and best of all, we have tons of deliciously amazing options to choose from right here in Montreal.

This breakfast chain has locations all over Montreal, and for good reason - their food is delicious and everyone should have it readily available to them. They have 4 different kinds of waffles, all of which are great, but the Belgian Waffle Pagé is always a standout. It has a fresh fruit mix, pure Canadian maple syrup and crème anglaise, all on a fluffy golden waffle.

Cacao 70 never disappoints when it comes to serving up something sweet. Between their brunch and sweets menu, they have about 5 or 6 different waffles to choose from. My personal favourite is always the Tutti-Frutti: a classic waffle with fresh strawberries, toffee bananas, chocolate covered ice cream, milk chocolate chunks and rich melted chocolate. It'll satisfy your sweet tooth every time.

Engaufrez-Vous specializes in made-to-order waffles and has tons of options, both sweet and savoury, when it comes to toppings and fillings. For something on the savoury side, you need to try the Catalane, which comes with sausage, vegetables and spicy oil. And if you're looking for something sweet, the dark chocolate and frangipane (an almond flavoured filling) is always sure to hit the spot.

Belgian chocolate on a Belgian waffle? Yes please. This chocolatier lets you choose what kind of rich Belgian chocolate to have your perfectly golden and soft waffle covered in. It's a simple and unbeatable combination that will keep you coming back.

There are so many amazing waffle options to choose from here that the worst part of your whole experience will be having to pick just one. I'll try to help you narrow it down a bit and tell you that the Dulce de Leche is seriously top notch (they use the real, good stuff) and the Bananas Foster is so decadent that you'll want to savour every bite. And afterwards you can wash it all down with one of their delicious lattes.
A crispy belgian waffle with orange cream, caramelized pecans and fresh berries is the star of the breakfast menu at Renoir. The combination of flavours and textures on a perfectly made waffle is sure to start your day off right.
