Brunch picks on Montreal’s Plateau-Mont-Royal

It's lazy, it’s luxurious – what’s not to love about a great weekend brunch? You get to sleep in, then go out and eat delicious food. Quebecers have certainly caught onto this trend in recent years, and there’s no shortage of restaurants ready to meet the demand. To help you find your favourites (why stick to just one!), here’s a list of top picks for brunch on the Plateau-Mont-Royal.

La Salle à Manger

1302 av du Mont-Royal E, Montréal, QC H2J 1Y5

Located on Mont-Royal Avenue in the heart of the Plateau, the restaurant La salle à manger offers a European-style brunch menu. Choices include a cured meat dish, fried eggs, salmon gravlax and even a bento box. If you are the "salty" type, this brunch should please you.

L'Gros Luxe

3807 rue Saint-André, Montréal, QC H2L 3V9

This small neighbourhood restaurant chain has a location on St-André Street. Known for its affordable prices, the restaurant L'Gros Luxe offers a highly varied brunch menu. From two eggs and bacon to poutine déjeuner (breakfast poutine), there’s plenty of comfort food to choose from. And we have to give a special mention to the unusual options such as the "pogo déjeuner" (breakfast pogo) and the "kale and egg" breakfast.

Les Folies

701 av du Mont-Royal E, Montréal, QC H2J 1W7

Open for years on Mont-Royal Avenue, Les Folies offers a lively atmosphere to inject some energy into your weekend morning. You’ll find old favourites on the menu, like eggs and pancakes, but also some "déjeuners folies" such as poutine déjeuner (breakfast poutine) and stuffed pancakes.

Patisserie Rhubarbe

5091 rue de Lanaudière, Montréal, QC H2J 3P9

Known for its delicious desserts, the lovely Pâtisserie Rhubarbe also offers a brunch menu on Sundays. Highlights include savoury scones, scrambled eggs with truffle oil, and a continental breakfast.

Bagel E.t.c

5
4320 boul Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2W 1Z3

The food and décor at this Montreal institution located in front of the Parc du Portugal is reminiscent of an old-school diner. On the menu: bagels, of course! But not only bagels with cream cheese. Bagel Etc. also offers pancakes and eggs. Don’t be surprised if you see Leonard Cohen here, as he is apparently a regular.

Maison Publique

6
4720 rue Marquette, Montréal, QC H2J 3Y6

At Maison Publique, chef Derek Dammann offers a brunch menu that is both traditional and original. On the corkboard that serves as a menu, you will find, among other items, pancakes served with a chili garnish, boudin (black pudding), and eggs Benedict. The menu is short, but the portions are generous. Sharing the dishes is recommended.

Byblos Le Petit Café

7
1499 av Laurier E, Montréal, QC H2J 1H8

This pleasant Petit Laurier restaurant offers an original take on brunch to match its focus on Middle Eastern cuisine. Byblos features feta omelets, pita bread, rose petal jam, and more! If you are looking for an exotic brunch, look no further.

Considered the cultural heart of the city, the Quartier des spectacles has become one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in Montreal since the redevelopment of the Place des Festivals. It has eight public spaces that host an average of 40 festivals per year. Here is a list of restaurants where you can enjoy a bite to eat before or after your outing!
With Mother’s Day coming up, it’s time to think of an appropriate way to say “thank you” for all the great things that mothers do. And what better way than to sit down for some quality time over a delectable, perhaps even decadent, brunch. The Mile End has quite a few suitable destinations for just such a celebration, and we list them here. [Image credit: iStock.com/Lesyy]
