Le Cagibi

Le Cagibi – A Vegan adventure

The 411

Cagibi Montreal Brunch OutsideOne of the greatest challenges I come across while reviewing places is offering reviews on the vegetarian options, and in particular, the vegan options. Although personally I’m neither a vegetarian or vegan, I can see how difficult it can be to go out and find someplace to eat that offers something vegetarian/vegan on the menu. Things have come a long way in the last 30 plus years when you would have a hard time finding a menu item without meat in it. Many of the places I’ve gone too have some vegetarian menu items and they taste amazing. This is an easy thing to do when you deal with eggs, waffles, pancakes. Now vegan is another issue; it’s hard to find vegan items on a menu and often an item will be almost vegan if it was not for one small thing in it. I usually end up looking for fruit cups on the menu, which although are great and tasty, they aren’t really impressive. So all this to say, when we decided to go to Cagibi I was excited to find and review another place with not only vegetarian options but with vegan options as well (other than a fruit cup). So now that the stage is set lets take a closer look and see what we have on our plate.

Bistro Fruit Folie

Fruit Folie – Bursting with fruit

The 411

Bistro Fruits Folies OutsideSt-Denis is a street where all you need to do is walk a little bit and find a nice gem of a place to eat, and brunch is no exception to this rule. Fruits de Folie falls into this category by providing well priced food and tons of fruit on most of your plates (as the name implies). Although this is my first time coming to Fruits de Folie, I know a lot of people who have spoken about it for quite some time now, and the peer reviews all follow a similar theme of lots of fruit and very affordable. Now since I can’t disagree with those two ideals, off I went exploring.

Porto Vino

Porto Vino – The sweet, the salty, the fleshy.

The 411

Porto Vino Montreal (west Island) exteriorEvery once and a while I like to change up things and try something new that people keep asking about. Now I get many questions for where I can find an all-you-can-eat brunch and to be honest I have only been to a handful of them and they tend to be in hotels. Now, to get a background on all-you-can-eat brunches they tend to put out giant buffet spreads. The menus often consist of copious amounts of classic egg dishes, both salty & sweet as well as lunch like options such as meats and pastas. Now I’m kind of old school when it comes to brunch – I don’t mind some stuff that isn’t 100% classic sweet or salty dishes but the full lunch thing turns me off. So what I did in this review is try to compare Porto Vino to all the other all-you-can-eat brunches out there.

Tiffanys

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

The 411

Tiffanys Bistro and Grill MontrealFor almost a year I have had people asking me to check out Tiffany’s, but I never really got around to it and also, its situated in an area that I am rarely in. However, this Christmas an amazing thing happened when a friend of mine gave me a gift certificate to Tiffany’s and not only did it highlight the fact I really love brunch but it gave me the motivation to check it out. Now I need to state the obvious: the name chosen for this place is awesome and it makes choosing a tag line that much easier for this post. I mean how can you go wrong with something that makes everyone think of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”
