Breakfast is the first meal of the day and for me, it might be my only meal until later afternoon because I tend to get caught up in my day. With MTLPromos and MTLBreakfast, I was able to try over 100 restaurants in the past year and when it comes to breakfast, I can NEVER say no to one of these 5 restaurants. Here’s my Top 5 restaurants to eat breakfast in Montreal. (please note that the order have no importance) InstagramYou will also notice that I’ve been to most of them with my friend Katrina, go check her ! She co-manages the MTLBreakfast account and she’s takes nice pictures!
4313 St Johns Blvd, Dollard-Des Ormeaux, QC H9H 2A4
With 14 restaurants in the Montreal Greater Area, L’Oeufrier is one of my favorite breakfast restaurant in Montreal. I discovered this restaurant because they opened a new location near my house a year ago. From the first time I went there with my friend Katrina, I knew I would be back often. They have everything you can think of, even Nachos for breakfast (on Monday’s at the location in Dollard des Ormeaux) . From the classic egg and toast breakfast to the waffle with nutella and bacon, l’Oeufrier is one of the best breakfast in Montreal. During the week, you can benefit of the early bird special when you go before 8:30!
Casino de Montreal (30$ on Sunday)
1 Avenue du Casino, Montréal, QC H3C 4W7
Montreal’s Casino is located on the Notre Dame Island and it is the largest casino in Canada. Open 24/7, I’ve never been lucky at the Casino until I went there to try their brunch on Sunday’s between 10AM to 2PM. I remember the first time, I went there after doing a scavenger hunt for my girlfriend and the last activity was the Casino Brunch. Walking into the casino, the brunch is located in the Pavillon 67 and it is a buffet. From having a chef doing your omelette the way you want it to choose from a wide range of cheese, fresh fruits and more, this place won’t let you down AND they even have live music! I wish the Casino had their brunch buffet everyday!
Farine (6$-20$ during weekend)
102 Rue Saint Viateur O, Montréal, QC H2T 2L1
I don’t know where to start on why I love Farine so much.. the staff? the chef? the food? the location? the music? Located in the heart of the Mile-End, Farine offers one of the best brunch in the city during the weekend. I went to Farine for the first time with Katrina to try their brunch menu and it was delicious. They have one of the best croissant in Montreal. The only downside of this place is the number of place to sit (so I highly suggest to go there with a friend or 2 max). This place has also an amazing lunch menu with caviar and everything is made by the chef.
Festin de Babette (10$-30$)
4085 St Denis St, Montreal, QC H2W 2M7
At this point, do I need to tell you who I was with when I tried Festin de Babette for the first time? When Katrina and I went there, we were amazed by the way it looked. The restaurant is set up like a house so you are eating in the living room area, dinette area and more. This joint deserve to be in the Top 5 breakfast restaurants in Montreal because of their hot chocolate brought from heaven. The salmon egg benedict was tasty and the staff was really nice, and by staff I mean the mother of the owner!
Le Café Melbourne (10$-20$ available on special days)
I went to the Cafe Melbourne for the first time for a food blogger meet up! My friend Jessica invited me to try this breakfast restaurant and she was meeting up with other bloggers from Montreal and Toronto that are TOP content creators. (You can see some of their tricks in my 4 Tips to Succeed on social media article). If you want to try out their breakfast, keep an eye out on their Instagram Account. Their brunch usually starts at 10AM and goes until it is sold out, and if you show up at 10:30, you will most probably have to wait for 20-30 minutes before getting inside to eat. The brunch often change but it always good when you go there. This restaurant has an electric atmosphere and it is one of the top Instagramable venue!
That being said, do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to go for breakfast at any of these locations, I am always open to discuss ideas over a nice brunch! What about you, what is your favorite breakfast restaurant in Montreal?
