Montreal's must-try pancake restaurants

Montreal is well known for their delicious crêpes, which are like flat pancakes. However, sometimes all we want are those classic, fluffy and buttery American-style pancakes. Here are a few pancakes you must try in Montreal.

Beautys Luncheonette

1
93, av du Mont-Royal O, Montréal, QC H2T 2S5

Beauty’s is one of Montreal’s iconic brunch spots. Open since 1942, they have their classics down pat. It should come as no surprise that they have mastered the art of the classic pancake. The buttery taste pairs perfectly with the maple syrup and either ham, bacon or sausage. Beauty’s also offers blueberry, banana, chocolate chip or apple cinnamon pancakes that are equally scrumptious.

Le Moineau (Sparrow)

5322, boul Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2T 1S1

The Sparrow on Saint-Laurent is well known for their cool cocktails and their delicious brunch menu. They offer a buckwheat pancake, which is not as fluffy by nature, but is every bit as delicious. This dish is served with the perfect combination of apple butter, crème fraîche, maple syrup, walnuts and fruit. Bacon is optional.

H4C Place St-Henri

538, Place Saint-Henri, Montréal, QC H4C 2R9

H4C is the spot for brunch in St-Henri. They serve dishes that you would normally only find in the Mile-End or the Plateau, where they take their brunch seriously. Their apple pancakes alone are worth the trip, and they’re served with rhubarb compote, homemade yogurt and French maple syrup. Enjoy on their terrace on a warm sunny Sunday.

Maison Publique

4720, rue Marquette, Montréal, QC H2J 3Y6

Maison Publique, known for their British Pub fare, also serves weekend brunch to starving Montrealers. Their pancake dish includes three stacked cakes of fluffy goodness with bacon. The pancakes are moist and melt in your mouth, and go nicely with the saltiness of the bacon. The menu changes often, but they will usually have a rendition of the delicious classic.
