Au Festin De Babette

festin de babette interiorOver on St Denis is Festin de Babette, a place that when you step into, you get transported to Paris. With items that have that oh-so-French look and feel, you think you are no longer in Montreal.

The décor is charming with a large table in the middle and smaller ones on the side overlooking a wall full of French products. You can have brunch here as well as as shop around and buy something unique. Open every day until 3pm, you have a spot in the city that has a slightly different brunch than the usual suspects we are familiar with.

The menu is comprised of over 20 items priced anywhere between $6.50-$16.50 with some dishes having coffee included as well; although, no drip and no refills. There is a large section with crepes, and a combo option where you get free coffee included. The menu breakdown is:

  • Baguette, croissant, jam and juice: $16.50
  • Sausage, ham, egg, potatoes: $16.50
  • Two eggs on top of smoked salmon: $16.50
  • Vegetarian quiche: $16.50
  • 7 Savory crepes: $8.50-10.50
  • 11 sweet crepes: $6.95-$7.50
  • festin de babette eggs benedict with juice

    We all ordered from the combo menu so our price was fixed at $16.50 and we got coffee on the side as well. We started with the Drolet ($16.50) which has two eggs with hollandaise sauce on top of smoked salmon, potatoes on the side, a tomato, asparagus and a beat juice on the side. The potatoes were dauphinoise: this is a very French dish and was well done. It is not your run-of-the-mill breakfast potatoes. The eggs Benedict with smoked salmon were perfectly done and help combine that little of Montreal and France feeling. The beet drink was quite pronounced and I was not won over only because I find drinking beet juice on its own is too much.

    My dish was a daily special called the Laurier ($16.50) which had granola, fruit coulis, 3 mini crepes a soft-boiled eggs and a bread for dipping. It also came with coffee but I felt that the price was a little high for this dish and I would have liked a little something extra. The items that comprised the dish were well done and I did find them tasty but it was a little boring.

    Service

    The staff was very nice to us, they answered all our questions and didn’t rush us to get out.

    Vegetarian

    Some of the savory crepes are vegetarian while all the sweet ones are. If you add some of the combos, you have a rather vegetarian friendly brunch.

    Wrap up

    Festin de Babette is a fun experience if you want to experience a little bit of France in Montreal. I would have liked drip coffee but the fact that coffee is included in the promos is a nice treat and budget friendly. Their crepe dishes are also well priced.
