Montreal’s top Easter brunches

Let’s be honest, the holidays are stressful and when you have family over for a holiday, the stress level tends to increases exponentially. So instead of cooking, prepping and cleaning your house, this Easter why don’t you save yourself the trouble (and stress) and enjoy brunch at one of the many Montreal restaurants serving Easter brunch.

Opting to have a salad used to mean that you were on a diet, but not anymore! Today there are so many unique combinations and eating salad is now about satisfying a craving, not going on a diet. We love clean eating when it tastes good! [image creditl: iStockphoto]
Let’s face it, we’re only happy about Thanksgiving because we get a day off from work! It’s not a big holiday like our neighbours to the south but that doesn’t mean we can’t go out and celebrate with a good meal and a fun experience. Here are some fun Montreal alternatives to the traditional turkey dinner. We’re thankful that we live in Montreal with all of these amazing restaurants!
