Aux Vivres

A new twist on an old Classic

The 411

Situated on St Laurent, Aux Vivres is one of the few vegan breakfast/brunch options you will find in the city.

At 1st glance

Until now no other place that has been reviewed has offered a vegan option; some places do offer vegetarian choices but that’s only because they have a fruit cup, whereas Aux Vivres gives you 100% real vegan options. Once you pass by you could almost miss it as it is a very inconspicuous location, but when you walk in it’s nice, bright and welcoming. The terrace in the back is nice and cozy with a canopy above and a small garden in the middle. (more…)

Beauty’s

A Montreal Institution

The 411

Although located in an unassuming building on the corner of Mont-Royal and St-Urbain, Beauty’s has been a Montreal landmark serving brunch dishes since 1942. Often referred to as the grand daddy of Montreal Brunch eateries, it is simply a spot that you must go to. Even if you are not a fan you need to go just to experience a piece of history and help put into context all other breakfast places.

At 1st glance

From the outside you wonder what is so special about this place as it is very run of the mill and in fact looks a bit run down. But once you spot the line-up trying to squeeze its way into the very tight doorway you quickly figure out not all is as it seems. Once inside (expect a good 25-35 minute wait on weekends) you will be taken back to what can only be described as a living time capsule. The decor is similar to an old style dinner, yet still well kept, the small 2 person banquet seating is quite snug and if you are of ample frame don’t even try it since it will be tight. The short order counter is really cool, but the main thing to notice is what’s posted on the walls. You will find posters for some of their famous smoothies and banana pancakes posters (my fav) and deep in the back under this giant clock with green neon light is a how to build the perfect bagel and cream cheese schematic style poster.

Les Folies

Crazy For Brunch

The 411

Situated at the gate of Mont-Royal’s Brunch alley, Les Folies offers all a good introduction into the what is Brunch on Mount-Royal

At 1st glance

With it’s big blue sign and terrace announcing itself to the world you can’t help but walk in and check out Les Folies. Once inside you see an interesting decor and a pretty solid menu. Although referred to by some as the “other L’avenue”, Les Folies does some things to distinguish itself.

Food

The menu is of fair size and offers some tasty options for all. The Mega weighs in at $11.95 with bacon, sausage, ham, 2 crepes, Emmental cheese, bread (really tasty bread) and a fruit juice. The Nordic Eggs Benedict ($12.50) is tasty and comes with 2 eggs and Emmental cheese which is different twist on an old favourite. The crepes Brunch section has 6 interesting options all priced at $10.95; each plate comes with bacon, sausage, ham, potatoes, bread and fruit. There are 8 omelette choices ranging from $8.95 to $10.50. The Santé menu has a fresh fruit plate ($6.95) and a fruit cup ($8.95) which comes with cereal, yogourt and nuts. There are 7 choices for the fruit cocktails ($4.95) and they are so thick your straw stands up on its own. The Tutti Fruti comes with strawberries, mango, raspberries, bananas, cranberry and pineapple. There used to be a banana and chocolate crepe on the brunch menu but they moved it to dessert and although it’s not on the main menu you should ask for it since it’s quite something. (more…)

Caffe Della Posta

A refreshing change

The 411

Originally known as the Vaudeville, Della Posta, a self described Sicilian Resto, offers a weekend brunch. Nestled on Bernard, west of Park, the decor takes you back to a relaxed place.

At 1st glance

The location is rather easy to miss as you tend to keep walking until you realize you passed it. Once inside you feel relaxed with the white decor and the lovely bar with an open kitchen on the side. The menu is actually quite short but there are some interesting dishes.

Raviolution

Côté Soleil Shines

The 411

Previously known as Côté Soleil, Raviolution is the best kept secret in the city for breakfast/brunch. With well sized portions, great taste and service, this little St Denis Resto is guaranteed not to disappoint.

At 1st glance

Ever pass by St Denis and see that building with the yellow stair case? Well, if you’ve seen it then you’re standing in front of Raviolution. From the outside it’s quite unassuming but when you sit down you will be amazed by what they have to offer.

Food

Raviolution puts some great breakfast ideas on the table; plates such as Apricot crêpes ($7.95), chestnut cream crepe, and a solid line-up of eggs Benedict that cost anywhere between $10.95 to $12.95. The omelettes are also bursting with taste and range from $7.95 to $10.95 for the 3 choices of omelettes. It also has the most unique pieces of fresh fruit per plate; what this means is that it has many interesting varied fruits on your plate, not just the normal berries and orange slice. One of my favourites is the Eggs Benedict Scadinavian ($11.95) which comes with smoked salmon and is bursting with flavour and is quite filling. The Apricot crêpes are a sure hit, not too sweet and just the right taste. The spinach and cheese omelette ($8.95) does not disappoint and is a tasty vegetarian option. The fresh fruit and yogurt cups ($7.95) are of a nice size and refreshing. (more…)

Allo Mon Coco

Take a walk on the North side

The 411

All the way up in the 450, Allo Mon Coco has made itself quite a reputation as a quality breakfast place in Laval. So I made the trek to see what the fuss was all about, and boy was I pleasantly surprised.

At 1st glance

allo-mon-coco-outside-smallInitially from the outside it does not seem to offer the most impressive but when you walk in it’s a whole other story. Even at 2 P.M. the place is packed and for good reason. Allo Mon Coco serves up some solid food options that will please any appetite. It is important to note that they allow for wheelchair access (no steps at the door) as well as wheelchair accessible washrooms.
