You've Only Done Brunch In Montreal Properly If You've Tried At Least 8 Of These 14 Spots

Can you think of anything better than Montreal brunch? There's not much that can top it.

Out of all of the things that Montreal does well (and, yes, there are a lot), brunch has got to be a city-wide favourite.

While we may have our 5 à 7's, brunch is just as important to Montreal culture... and let's be real, it's the happy hour of the morning, anyway.

But when it comes to doing it properly, there are a few spots you need to try to truly call yourself a Montreal bruncher.

If you've been to at least eight of these 14 spots, then the title is all yours.
