A Fairmount Find.
201 Avenue Fairmount Ouest Montreal, QC H2T 2M8
On a mild Winter Sunday morning/afternoon, nothing beats brunching and catching up with good friends, but the brunch experience was recently taken to the next level at Arts Café.
Windows are dressed with hanging light bulbs adding to the eccentric feel, while wooden floors and walls help keep the small space warm. Mismatched chairs and different-sized tables give the café a vintage vibe. The décor may be busy, but it works. Grab a latte (or a mimosa) and a seat by the window if you can for some natural sunlight and a view of this adorable plateau street.
Brunch itself is delicious. The menu is not overwhelming, but still has enough choice that you will need a few minutes to decide on your target. Highlights included the breakfast poutine, sweet & savoury french toast, and the delicious coffee. See what else we ordered below!
|French Toast with Apple Cardamom Chutney, Cheddar, Almonds, and McMillan Farm Maple Syrup|
|Breakfast Poutine: Duck Confit, Sarladaises Potatoes, Cipollini, Cheese Curds, Poached Egg, and Hollandaise|
|A Fairmount Bagel with Salmon Gravlax, Organic Tomato, Arugula, Herb Cream Cheese, Fried Capers, and a Baked Potato with Crème Fraîche|
All I can say is GO (but go early because there is bound to be a wait and they don’t take reservations).
Mind, Taste, Love.
Never miss a post again!
