The 411 Outremont is an area we are starting to explore again. Finally, after a few years there are some new places opening up. Recently, someone told me about this new place called Les Influences that offered a solid selection at a great price. Most Outremont brunch spots tend to be on Bernard street so finding something on Van Horne is refreshing since it’s kind of tucked away from all the crowds and line-ups.
The 411 Ethnic brunch is often a concept rather difficult to pull off. Many have a choice to make: you can go the classic Montreal breakfast route, disregarding their ethnic tradition; you can try to go full ethnic and put something traditional on the table at the risk of it being closer to lunch than brunch; and sometimes, you strike a balance between the two. Su is a Turkish restaurant that I’ve been to for dinner before and quite enjoyed the meals there. I’ve always gone with at least one Turkish person so they help in navigating the menu and make those hard decisions as to what to order.
The 411On McKay street near Concordia University and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts you will find Nocochi, a lovely Persian tea shop that I have always enjoyed going to for tea and light snacks. It’s a great spot to go to especially after spending an afternoon at the museum checking out the latest exhibits. So, one morning after trying out a yoga class nearby, we went into Nocochi to try out their brunch..
