Montreal Old Port waterside restaurant La Cantine is now hosting brunch every Sunday through September 25. The spot is known for pulling after-work crowds to its cool 5 à 7 events during the week with live DJs, gourmet eats and refreshing drinks by the duo behind popular Villeray café Saison des pluies.
As of July 24, it's opening earlier one day on the weekend and adding bottomless pitchers of the most popular late-morning cocktail to the menu. You can keep the mimosas flowing at your table for two hours ($35), while you enjoy a midday meal and cool off from the breeze of the Saint Lawrence River. Single glasses of the OJ/Champagne concoction go for $11 each.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., La Cantine will serve sweet options, like French toast with strawberries and crème anglaise ($16), and a salty breakfast sandwich with hashbrowns, bacon salsa and a runny egg. More savoury dishes include chorizo scrambled eggs with spicy sausage and red peppers ($15) and a seasonal poutine with bacon, maple syrup and hollandaise ($18).
You can also order the classic avocado toast complete with a poached egg and caramelized onions ($16).
Caffeinated options include espressos ($3.25), cappuccinos ($4.5), cortados ($4) and lattes ($5) that can come hot or iced.
Whether you're looking to soothe your Saturday night hangover or impress a morning-after date, La Cantine has you covered.
