Brunch is definitely the best meal of the day. And I cannot tell you how discouraging it is to go out for brunch as a vegan. Most breakfast restaurants have like nothing to eat if you shy away from animal products.
Before I started going to actual vegan brunch places, I was eating fruit bowls for breakfast every time. And if I was lucky I'd get some toast with jam and peanut butter. Now that's a delicious breakfast, don't get me wrong. But when you're watching everyone else get these super beautiful and overflowing plates of food, it can make you feel a little bit left out.
Well, thank goodness for vegan brunch! Now we can get pampered like the rest of the table. And Montreal has some seriously awesome choices.
The title here says it all. It really is the light of your life. Just looking through the menu made my insides get all warm and fuzzy. And on that note, it also made my stomach growl like crazy. Smoothies, breakfast burritos, and warm coffee. Can you say heaven? I know where I'm eating brunch this weekend!
This restaurant is amazing at any time of day. With great vegan breakfast choices and musical performances at night, this artist-run cafe is the place to be. With their signature almond blend mix for coffees, they are sure to wake you up in the morning. Best thing ever? They even deliver! Get your breakfast delivered right to you so you don't even have to get out of bed.

This place is already one of my favorite restaurants, so learning that they serve brunch just puts it over the top. They really know what they're doing when it comes to vegan food, so I just know that their food is going to make me veeeeery happy. It's available on weekends and just looking at their menu has got me very excited.
This place distributes a ton of ready-to-eat vegan food. That means you don't have to make breakfast for yourself anymore. You can just mozy on down to one of their locations and get yourself some food. It's all prepared in their central kitchen and made just for you.

As soon as you click on their website, you're immediately greeted with delicious-looking photos that are going to make you dreeeeam of brunch. I've been for supper before and it was absolutely amazing, but I didn't know that they did breakfast too. I only have good things to say, and I am pretty sure that you will too.
This restaurant was already named the best vegan restaurant in Montreal, but did you know that they've decided to tackle brunch as well? All weekend long, you can get some of the best vegan breakfast in the city. Just check out their menu and you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. And if the food isn't reason enough to come, the decor will reel you in just as much. This place is SO CUTE.
This place is the first-ever vegan Italian restaurant in Montreal, so they're definitely on the forefront of food. The best thing is that you don't even have to wait around for the weekend to have brunch here. They offer it every day of the week, so you never have to limit yourself. Vegan waffles and pancakes...need I say more?
Just looking at these pictures is bringing a tear to my eye. I never thought I'd be able to go out for breakfast and get a plate that looks like this and that is completely vegan! Just check out that crepe and that tofu scramble. Their 100% vegan menu is sure to please any and all who show up, no matter what their dietary choices are.

This place has much more than a great drink menu and dinner options. Oh yeah, they do brunch. They've got donuts, they've got "yogurt" parfaits, they've got everything you could possibly need! I can't believe I didn't know about this. Luckily, this stuff tastes so good you can bring your non-vegan friends and they won't have any reason to make a fuss.
This little music cafe is the best place to go with your friends because it's got options for vegans but also for non-vegans. It's got the best of both worlds! Let me tell you that is the best thing you could possibly do. Opening up your doors to everyone will only ever be good for you. With shows and great food, you really can't go wrong with this place.
