Brucie

Brucie Brooklyn back

The 411 It’s summer and that means a trip down to New York – more specifically, Brooklyn. Brunch in Brooklyn is an adventure and we always manage to hit up unique and delicious brunches. As of recently, I have been putting down the camera while on vacation to simply enjoy brunch, but this time I just couldn’t help snapping some shots and sharing this gem.

Cabane a sucre pied de cochon apple season 2014

exterior of cabane a sucre pied de cochon apple season 2014 It’s Pied de Cochon time again- cabane a sucre apple season: the-over-the-top seasonal gastronomic extravaganza from the brain of Martin Picard and his team; and, this year does not disappoint. This time we have a twist on the apple season. Although apples are featured in the menu, we have an emphasis on vegetables as well and the bounty of the harvest that the summer has brought us. You can see it from the items in the food to the bright red colours the staff is wearing – you see that summer is upon us. Now, don’t be afraid that just because we said vegetables, there is still loads of meat and foie gras, I mean, this is Pied de Cochon, after all, so you are guaranteed to have a copious meal filled with meat and foie gras. With all things involving the creative direction of chefs and in order for things to remain fresh and up to date they will keep changing the menu. What we saw today will be what others will see this season but ingredients and items might change as we get feedback and other seasonal items become available. Remember this spans from August 15 to November 1st so we cover summer and fall. (more…)

Salmigondis

salmiogondi terrace fullOften we get asked for suggestions in certain areas; Where is the best French toast in Montreal? What’s the best spot in the plateau? Sometimes, the answers are easy, other times they are trickier, like when people ask where should they go in little Italy? Now, lets be clear, little Italy is a very small area, In fact, it’s not even a real borough so it floats between Villeray, and Rosemont/Petite Patrie. So, we use the metric of: can I make it to the Jean Talon marker in under 10 minutes? Sadly, with that metric it’s only a handful. But, when Salmiogondis opened up in walking distance, we were curious to see what kind of addition this brunch place would make to the Little Italy area. (more…)

Brasserie Bernard

brasserie bernard exteriorBernard street has had a love-hate relationship with me. When I first started this site, Bernard was the street where you had to have brunch. With lots of choice and good ones at that, it was my favourite place to be especially in the summer with all those terraces. However, as time went on, I discovered new places, better brunches, and the spots on Bernard either closed down or didn’t evolve, that is, until recently when Brasserie Bernard brought a beacon of light on Bernard street and made having brunch in Outremont a more enjoyable event.

La Stellina

stellina jean talon market brunch terraceJean Talon market is a magical, almost romantic, place; on sunny days strolling from stall to stall getting some fresh fruits and vegetables, checking out various stalls for all your culinary needs. It’s one of my favourite places to bring people who come in from out of town. As you stroll around, you might want to add something else that is magical and ever so representative of Montreal… and that would be brunch. . (more…)

Cafe Grand

Brunch in the West is often challenging. Yes, there are lots of brunch spots west of Decarie but I often find that they have similar menus and aren’t really creative in terms of what they make. Having gone to hundreds of different brunch spots, I get tired of the usual bacon and eggs so when our brunch brought us out west, I had to look around and find something a little different.

Cardinal Tea Room

Cardinal tea room is a newcomer to the scene. Connected to Sparrow, which has been serving brunch for a few years now, this 2 floor old-style gem has that laid back feel with ample natural lighting and a more relaxed ambiance for brunching. Cardinal tea room has that British imperial style to it and, nothing says England like tea and cookies. The interior has two lovely floors flooded with natural light, bookshelves, a piano, a chalkboard, a steamer trunk and all those old style items that really make for quite the experience.

H4C

h4c exterior brunch montrealA while ago, H4C opened up in Montreal and we were fortunate enough to try out their dinner. We enjoyed dinner there, and when we heard that they would be rolling out brunch we were excited. This part of St Henri has been changing over the last couple years with new restaurants and condos popping up here and there. This takes a normally working class area and changes the landscape. I don’t particularly feel like re-living my university day discussions about gentrification so I will avoid the social commentary and get the point that there is a new good brunch spot in the area that makes some really creative dishes that you would normally see in the Plateau or Mile End.
