5 must-visit brunch spots in Montreal

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy a delicious brunch in Montreal, you’ve come to the right place. In fact, I’ve tested out a number of brunch spots, and I’ve put together a selection of my 5 must-try addresses for a memorable brunch in Montreal. Whether you’re looking for a trendy place to grab a coffee, or a more casual place to spend time with family or friends, you’ll find suggestions for every taste.

1. Bloomfield - Outremont


Brunch at Bloomfield on Van Horne Avenue is a real treat for the taste buds. This restau-bistro offers seasonal cuisine, and its brunch options are simply delicious. I recommend the Jerusalem platter for two (Baba ghanoush, carrot moutabal, muhammara, hummus, grilled halloumi, pita, …). Admittedly, it’s a very different brunch from the classic eggs, bacon and potatoes, but it’s well worth the detour. Otherwise, don’t miss the French toast and the avocado tartine.
My advice: book in advance, as places are limited.

2. Antipode - Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Antipode Mtl

Antipode – If you’re looking for a tasty brunch with a relaxed atmosphere, Antipode on Rue Laurier is the place for you. This restaurant offers vegetarian options and original dishes, not to mention their creative lattes. I recommend their brunch menu with a wild mushroom poêlée and a red fruit smoothie bowl.
My advice: you’re here to try new things, so I recommend you try the lavender or pistachio lattes.

Adress: 1602 Avenue Laurier E, Montréal, QC H2J 1H9

3. Le passé composé - Le Village

Le passé composé

If you’re looking for a chic place to brunch, passé composé on boulevard de Maisonneuve is a must. With its elegant decor, this restaurant offers quality French-inspired cuisine and revisited brunches. So it’s no surprise it’s on my list of 5 must-try brunch addresses in Montreal. The poached eggs with duck confit are among the best dishes, as are the fried avocados (a must-try).
My advice: this is one of the best brunches in town, so book ahead.
: 1310 Boul. de Maisonneuve E, Montréal, QC H2L 2A5

4. Janine Café - Verdun

Brunch au Janine Café Verdun

Some call it the Decadent Brunch, and if you go, you’ll quickly understand why. Indeed, you only have to delve into the menu to understand. For example, French toast with aged cheddar, flaked ham, eggs and cream sugar, or French toast with cherry and almond jam, mascarpone cream, berries and caramelized cashews. Quite honestly, it’s a brunch you won’t forget. Finally, what can I say about the atmosphere! The decor is reminiscent of a chic London tearoom.
My advice: this is one of the best brunches in town, so book ahead.
Adress3 900 Rue Wellington, Verdun, QC H4G 1V3 

4. Salon de Thé Cardinal - Le Mile End

Located on Boulevard Saint-Laurent, Salon de Thé Cardinal is a veritable institution, and the ideal place for a relaxing gourmet break. The menu is served in crockery found in antique shops or flea markets. You’ll also be surrounded by objects that represent 1920s art deco. The establishment offers a wide variety of teas and delicious pastries, all in a warm and friendly atmosphere. A visit is a must!
Adress: 5326 Boul. Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2T 1S1
