Best Breakfast & Brunch Spots In Montreal

37 great spots to try out! 🍳

Breakfast is personally my favourite meal of the day. It's one of those meals that you don't feel bad about eating at any time of the day. If you wanted to eat pasta for breakfast, you'd get weird looks, but eggs benny at dinner, you're a champ. 

Montreal has literally hundreds of breakfast restaurants and for the most part, you'll find the standard range of menu options. There are few breakfast places that truly distinguish themselves, however!

So next time you're planning breakfast or brunch, look no further than this list! There's no reason to break your head over which place you should go to!
