Montreal – ALL YOU CAN DRINK – Brunch

Ah, the weekend brunch, the only time when you can sit down with friends and discuss what’s been going on during the week and the previous nights’ adventures/bad decisions. What better way to do this than over a good meal and chat/gossip. But what if you’re thirsty? And I don’t mean the “I need some coffee” thirsty, we’re talking about the” I need some booze” thirsty.

Your thirst, much like some people’s boundaries, knows no limits. You could get a mimosa, a bloody Caesar, you don’t know what, but you definitely want something and coffee isn’t cutting it this morning. Fortunately most places in Montreal have you covered with some of that beloved liquid nutrition. But have more than one mimosa and your booze bill climbs well past your food bill. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an all you can drink option so you can your friends can enjoy a booze filled brunch?

Well don’t worry, we have you covered, in fact, we put our livers up to the test and have the definitive all you can drink Montreal brunch list. So sit back and enjoy because your weekends are gonna start getting a whole lot more fun in the morning. (more…)

Le Richmond

le richmond montreal foodIt’s cabane a sucre season in Montreal and everywhere you turn there is a maple-themed menu popping up as well as restaurants doing their own cabane a sucre and Le Richmond is no exception. They recently started serving up weekend cabane a sucre themed brunches and once the season is done, word is, they will be doing normal brunches. This is exciting to see since Griffintown has lots of interesting restaurants but there has been some loss of brunch places over the years. When Le Richmond announced this we got excited and headed with two of our blogger friends, the Montreal Food Divas. (more…)

Blanc de Blanc

blanc de blanc exteriorOver on Villeneuve street, just a little east of Parc, is this little café, or is it a laundromat? Or is it both… Actually Blanc de Blanc is both and a little more. One afternoon after having having spent some time on Mt Royal, we walked over and decided to try it out. (more…)

Barbounya

barnounya montreal exteriorSome restaurants have such buzz around them that you wait anxiously for them to offer brunch. This isn’t easy since most restaurants focus on dinner and brunch isn’t really an option. When we found out that Barbounya was doing brunch we were excited to see not only a restaurant with a solid reputation serve brunch but also that it was an ethnic brunch since Barbounya serves Turkish food.

Montreal cabane a sucre season

Montreal_winter_Maple_1Every year just as winter begins to ease up, the sap starts flowing and people begin heading out to get their maple fix at various cabane a sucres/sugar shacks outside of the city. Back in the day, the only way people would get their maple syrup addiction fed was to head out of town and hit up a sugar shack. Normally people would associate sugar shacks with very simple/traditional meals. The standard lineup at most sugar shacks include baked beans, eggs, mini sausages, potatoes, pork rinds, beets, and loads of maple syrup, in almost every dish. Pretty much basic dishes that haven’t changed or evolved in years. Things started to change when Martin Picard’s Pied de Cochon cabane a sucre made waves by taking these traditional dishes and making them fancy, combining them with modern dishes while keeping you full and having a steady supply of maple. They did such a good job that people started getting inspired and lots of places started looking at bringing this cabane a sucre experience into the city and having fun with these traditional dishes.

Toque Festival en Lumiere – Highlights Festival 2014

Toque Brunch-interiorEvery year, Le Festival en Lumiere offers us a glimmer of hope in winter where restaurants throughout the city serve up some incredible meals and for us the big bonus is that some who normally never do brunch offer a brunch menu. This year was no different and we got a chance to check out the legendary Toque. If you aren’t familiar with Toque, it is the restaurant of world famous chef and godfather of Montreal cuisine, Normand Laprise. This is the guy who put Montreal and ultimately Quebec on the culinary food map. A meal here is usually outside of most people’s casual dining budget. Their wine list is impressive; and, their meals are a roller coaster ride for your taste buds. The only issue is that they don’t do brunch. So, when we saw that they were offering up brunch this year we made sure to book a table.

Barcola Bistro

barcola bistro montreal exteriorOver the last year, I have befriended and helped out the Montreal Food Divas, 2 Montreal bloggers who make my life incredibly difficult and are responsible for some newly found grey hair. Just before the Christmas holidays, they wanted to meet for brunch. Diva #1 wanted eggs Benedict, I wanted somewhere new – so I picked somewhere new. We chose Café Barcola because it is very new and I wanted to go in blind since almost no one had started writing about it at the time. (more…)

Cabane a Sucre Pied de cochon Maple 2014

cabane a sucre pied de cochon jacketFebruary is a cruel, angry month. There are few things in it that are worth looking forward to unless you are one of those people who loves snow and cold. That is until you remember that it is the beginning of the Pied de Cochon Cabane a Sucre season. This year the season at the cabane goes on from February 14th until May 10th. We were fortunate enough to get an early spot and like every year people came down from as far as Toronto for this event. (more…)

cabane a sucre pied de cochon maple 2014 menu

Ok hungry people before we post our review of the Pied de Cochon cabane a sucre for 2014. Here is the menu or as close to the menu as we could get. This list has been comprised with our notes and 5 other people who were there,so we may be off on some ingredients but we tried to keep it as detailed as possible. We also included some pics of these great dishes. As some of you may know the Pied de Cochon Cabane is up in St-Benoît de Mirabel, at 11382 Rang de la Fresnière. You need reservations to go here and the booking window closed last December. Price is $62 for the meal itself, it does not include tax, tip, drinks or extra. They accept, cash, credit and debit. So here is a breakdown to satisfy your curiosity. (more…)

Lili Co

lili co montreal exteriorBack in October a new spot sprung up on Mentana. This small 26 seater has slowly been making a name for itself and gaining fans by offering some interesting dishes in a lovely environment. Now you may ask who is Lili? Well, we did and it turns out it’s the name of the little girl of the owner born at around the same time that they opened, and although I personally have no children (that I know of) I do tip my hat to anyone who opens a restaurant and has a kid at the same time. Because, each on their own is an incredible amount of work. (more…)
