Meet the owner

It's not unusual for pedestrians passing by the corner of Mont-Royal and Saint-Urbain to see a line gradually forming outside Beautys Luncheonette, the famous Plateau Mont-Royal restaurant. And just like the line itself, the place is an institution where people want to be seen — regular customers, the curious, tourists and prestigious visitors from around the world.

Open since 1942, the luncheonette has all the elements of a classic institution: an iconic menu, a family history and a founder, Hymie Sckolnick, who despite his 90 years, spends as much time as possible in the restaurant to accommodate customers. "We always took our time by staying close to our roots," says Beautys owner, Larry Sckolnick.

"My own children want to take over," he continues. "They feel good here, they like to work together with their grandfather Hymie."  Although the three generations of Sckolnicks like to tease one another, the "tightly woven" family fabric allows them to rely on each other. "It's a bit of a tag-team. You have to leave early, I'll replace you and vice versa."

    C'est correct mai...

    C'est correct mais rien d'extraordinaire et les prix sont élevés. Les laits frappés sont délicieux.

    Comme dans le temps

    Un endroit cool et sans prétention pour bien commencer la journée avec leur brunch. À mi-chemin entre le Mont-Royal et les boutiques du Plateau, ne reste plus qu'à savoir de quel côté partir en ressortant pour bien continuer la journée!

    Not your typical Thanksgiving fare in Montreal

    Not your typical Thanksgiving fare in Montreal

    The idea of cooking for a large group of people is a thankless job for some. Often those pesky relatives have the audacity to complain about your cooking! That’s why there’s Beauty’s Luncheonette, a classic diner in the Plateau. And isn’t a diner the classic spot to avoid the holidays? It is in the movies! At Beauty’s you can enjoy a typical diner breakfast, a BLT, hash, famous milkshakes, or the Beauty’s special, which is smoked salmon and cream cheese on a bagel. This way you can let the food coma set in just in time for an afternoon nap!

    Of course we went to the corner of Mont-Royal and Saint-Urbain to taste the famous brunches at Beauty's, but we shouldn't overlook their grilled cheese with bacon served between two slices of Challah egg bread.
