- Quebec chain Allô Mon Coco has unveiled its holiday menu and it's like "eating Christmas magic for breakfast."
- From red velvet pancakes to peppermint milkshakes, here's what to expect.
The one thing December is missing is an abundance of food and drinks. There may be cookies, desserts, pastries, and heavy Christmas drink celebrations from lunch until dinner, but where does one go to start a morning with a delicious insulin spike? Thankfully the popular Quebec breakfast chain Allô! Mon Coco has stepped in to pick up the slack by introducing its festive holiday breakfasts.
For a limited time only, Allô! Mon Coco has added a few select dishes to its already vast menu in celebration of the holidays that it claims "will make you feel as if you've been transported to the North Pole and are eating Christmas magic for breakfast."
And while "eating Christmas magic" sounds more like the plot to a children's fable, the menu does sound amazing.
From now until January 6, you will be able to order things like Eggnog french toast with roasted almonds and English cream garnished with a raspberry coulis. Then there are the red velvet pancakes with cream cheese frosting, and white chocolate topped with a strawberry coulis.
To wash it all down? There is a peppermint milkshake topped with whipped cream.
This may sound less like breakfast and more like a dessert feast, and that is perfectly fine.
For hot chocolate lovers, you can also try the Peppermint White Hot Chocolate served with a candy cane or the red velvet hot chocolate.
Allô! Mon Coco is also launching its annual holiday giveaways starting today. No word yet on what the prizes are (I'm guessing gift cards) but they are supposed to be "amazing."
It looks like there will be plenty of prizes throughout the month of December. All you have to do is follow @allomoncocooff to stay updated on how to enter.
If you happen to be one of those people who believe that the body is a temple, Allô! Mon Coco also offers healthier choices that don't include mountains of chocolate and whipped cream (but these pancakes just look so good).
With 40 branches around Quebec, you won't have to look very far to find an Allô! Mon Coco location to enjoy this holiday menu.
