The 411 For over 30 years, Restaurant La Raclette has been receiving patrons with its French and Swiss inspired menu. Within the last month or two, Restaurant La Raclette has begun offering a weekend brunch on the menu. When asked why, our waitress said that they wanted the brunch menu to match the dinner menu and respect the restaurant theme. Luckily, we now have a new brunch option a little more east, over on Gilford.
Over the last few months, a particular pastry has had the internet abuzz with images of lines going around the block, more than 2 hour long wait time and black market sales. What confectionery delight can cause this? Well, it is the all powerful Cronut. Hailing all the way from the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York city, this half croissant, half doughnut, a frankenpastry if you will, has got people talking and dreaming of this elusive pastry. So, when we heard that Montreal’s own La Cornetteria, over in little Italy, had come up with their own part croissant, part donught creation, we had to find out more.
The 411 Since I started doing this site, I have fallen in and out of love with Bernard street. When I first started, I felt Bernard was the place to go for brunch then as time passed I discovered new gems hidden in various neighbourhoods. Now, Bernard street was staring to get stale and some of my favourite spots were falling out of favour but some new spots opened up and started doing some interesting things and then, Bernard street started getting interesting again.
The 411 One day while walking down St Denis, I spotted a sign outside saying “Brunch”. To me, this is much like a light house signaling a ship. I meander over, I look at the menu, write down the address and add it to my list of places to review. I wish that weekends were more than two days and I can do brunch all the time but sadly we don’t live in that world so we slowly have to trim down the ever growing list of brunch spots.
