5 Elegant Brunch Spots in Montreal
Confession…I’m a bit of a brunch snob. Nothing gets me more excited than putting on a cute outfit and heading out for a lengthy Sunday brunch. It’s the last day of the weekend and I always try to make the most of it. I dare you to propose an activity that could bring me as much joy as French Toast, coffee, and a few rounds of Mimosas (seriously…comment below if you accept the challenge!).
In the spirit of elaborate Sunday brunches, I have composed a list of some of the finest & fanciest brunch spots that Montreal has to offer – you know, for those Sunday’s where rolling out of bed in sweats just won’t do – opt to brunch like royalty instead!
1045 Avenue Laurier O, Outremont, QC H2V 2L1
Leméac’s classic French brunch is wonderful. You feel as if you are dining in a Parisian bistro (especially when on their terrace in the summer!). Don’t skip the doughnuts and pain perdu – not sure how “royal” these are, but either way they cannot be missed!
901 Rue du Square-Victoria, Montréal, QC H2Z 1R1
A unique brunching experience awaits you at EAT in the W Hotel where pastries and mimosas arrive at your table by cart! If you’re looking for a brunch experience that’s a little different and a lot of fun, this is your spot. Read a full post on Être Avec Toi HERE.
3. Maison Boulud
1228 Sherbrooke St W, Montreal, QC H3G 1H6
Some might say The Ritz Carlton offers the queen of all brunches. Maison Boulud offers two prix-fixe menus, or brunch à la carte. No matter which you choose it is bound to be a regal experience. Come summertime, have a truly British experience by brunching or having tea in their stunning garden!
4. La Societé
1415 Rue de la Montagne, Montréal, QC H3G 1Z3
Another French classic, La Societé serves French brunch with a twist in a classic French environment. Leather benches, mosaic tiled floors, and marble-top tables all lend to the traditional feel of this gem. Insider tip: their lobster benedict is a must.
3927 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2W 2M4
Number five goes to yet another French bistro style restaurant and a true Montreal classic. It is no secret that Montreal does French food (both traditional and more modern) well, but here you will find an authentic French brunch – croque-monsieurs, croissants, and simple eggs and toast. No fusion cuisine, no modernizing, just a traditional French breakfast. (Bonus: they serve breakfast all week long too, so no need to wait until the weekend!)
