There are so many Montreal brunch and breakfast spots that honestly, it's tough to choose which ones to include on one of these lists. Montreal's breakfast professionals know which ones are the best and which ones are the worst, no doubt, but trying to narrow down spots where you can eat a lot for under $25 remains a challenge. Though breakfast is often a group activity, sometimes, you want to bring just a date or even take yourself out to brunch.
As much as I love brunch, some places have the tendency to be on the pricey side. That's not a knock on those places by any means, but sometimes, the plan of action is to load up on the mimosas and get a plate of bacon and eggs for under $10 bucks, ya know?
And don't even get me started on those complicated milkshakes.
Striking a balance between fancy and classic, the following eight brunch and breakfast spots in Montreal have a little bit for everyone. You'll find everything your taste buds desire - from decadent pancakes to plant-based power bowls and everything in between.
The bonus? You can comfortably eat and drink for under $25 at each one of these spots.
