Montreal – ALL YOU CAN DRINK – Brunch

Ah, the weekend brunch, the only time when you can sit down with friends and discuss what’s been going on during the week and the previous nights’ adventures/bad decisions. What better way to do this than over a good meal and chat/gossip. But what if you’re thirsty? And I don’t mean the “I need some coffee” thirsty, we’re talking about the” I need some booze” thirsty.

Your thirst, much like some people’s boundaries, knows no limits. You could get a mimosa, a bloody Caesar, you don’t know what, but you definitely want something and coffee isn’t cutting it this morning. Fortunately most places in Montreal have you covered with some of that beloved liquid nutrition. But have more than one mimosa and your booze bill climbs well past your food bill. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an all you can drink option so you can your friends can enjoy a booze filled brunch?

Well don’t worry, we have you covered, in fact, we put our livers up to the test and have the definitive all you can drink Montreal brunch list. So sit back and enjoy because your weekends are gonna start getting a whole lot more fun in the morning. (more…)

Le Richmond

le richmond montreal foodIt’s cabane a sucre season in Montreal and everywhere you turn there is a maple-themed menu popping up as well as restaurants doing their own cabane a sucre and Le Richmond is no exception. They recently started serving up weekend cabane a sucre themed brunches and once the season is done, word is, they will be doing normal brunches. This is exciting to see since Griffintown has lots of interesting restaurants but there has been some loss of brunch places over the years. When Le Richmond announced this we got excited and headed with two of our blogger friends, the Montreal Food Divas. (more…)

Montreal cabane a sucre season

Montreal_winter_Maple_1Every year just as winter begins to ease up, the sap starts flowing and people begin heading out to get their maple fix at various cabane a sucres/sugar shacks outside of the city. Back in the day, the only way people would get their maple syrup addiction fed was to head out of town and hit up a sugar shack. Normally people would associate sugar shacks with very simple/traditional meals. The standard lineup at most sugar shacks include baked beans, eggs, mini sausages, potatoes, pork rinds, beets, and loads of maple syrup, in almost every dish. Pretty much basic dishes that haven’t changed or evolved in years. Things started to change when Martin Picard’s Pied de Cochon cabane a sucre made waves by taking these traditional dishes and making them fancy, combining them with modern dishes while keeping you full and having a steady supply of maple. They did such a good job that people started getting inspired and lots of places started looking at bringing this cabane a sucre experience into the city and having fun with these traditional dishes.

Toque Festival en Lumiere – Highlights Festival 2014

Toque Brunch-interiorEvery year, Le Festival en Lumiere offers us a glimmer of hope in winter where restaurants throughout the city serve up some incredible meals and for us the big bonus is that some who normally never do brunch offer a brunch menu. This year was no different and we got a chance to check out the legendary Toque. If you aren’t familiar with Toque, it is the restaurant of world famous chef and godfather of Montreal cuisine, Normand Laprise. This is the guy who put Montreal and ultimately Quebec on the culinary food map. A meal here is usually outside of most people’s casual dining budget. Their wine list is impressive; and, their meals are a roller coaster ride for your taste buds. The only issue is that they don’t do brunch. So, when we saw that they were offering up brunch this year we made sure to book a table.

Cabane a Sucre Pied de cochon Maple 2014

cabane a sucre pied de cochon jacketFebruary is a cruel, angry month. There are few things in it that are worth looking forward to unless you are one of those people who loves snow and cold. That is until you remember that it is the beginning of the Pied de Cochon Cabane a Sucre season. This year the season at the cabane goes on from February 14th until May 10th. We were fortunate enough to get an early spot and like every year people came down from as far as Toronto for this event. (more…)

Ok hungry people before we post our review of the Pied de Cochon cabane a sucre for 2014. Here is the menu or as close to the menu as we could get. This list has been comprised with our notes and 5 other people who were there,so we may be off on some ingredients but we tried to keep it as detailed as possible.

Best Montreal Brunch of 2013

So, 2013 is well behind us and it has been an interesting ride. We saw some places close down, some new ones open up and the big question still remains: where is the best place to have brunch? Brunch for many people is different; some people like the classic eggs and pancakes while others like funky creations that reinvent the wheel when it comes to brunch. Over the years, we have done 280 posts and well over 250 brunch spots in Montreal (we like to travel so we do some outside of Montreal, also) So here we go and keep in mind that if you think we missed a spot let us know by contacting us.

New Montreal Brunch additions for a limited time

This year, winter came early and we got snow – cold, heavy, depressing snow. The kind that makes you wake up an hour early to shovel your car or to make you wish you had snow shoes to make it to your bus stop because the sidewalk disappeared.

So, during this season the food Gods have shone on us and offered us two very rare treats. Brunch at Ice house and at Pied de Cochon – two locations that traditionally do not do brunch. Now, both of these are for a limited time so do check them out soon or else it will be too late.

Cronut at Dominique Ansel Bakery

Cronuts-n-Drinks-2So, if you have been following some of our posts as well as our Facebook page you would notice that we have a slight obsession with Cronuts and “slight” is quite an understatement. Since the month of May, we have been flirting with the idea of driving down to the NYC on a random weekend, waking up at the crack of dawn, making our way to the Dominique Ansel Bakery and getting a Cronut. I mean, why not? It’s a short 6 hour drive – 7 with traffic and stops. But since my obsession was not there yet, we waited until Labour day for a scheduled NYC weekend and getting a Cronut was top of the list.

Cabane a Sucre Pied De Cochon Apple Season 2013

pdc 2013 apple season exterior signGuess what time it is? That’s right, it’s the Pied de Cochon Apple cabane à sucre season. That magical time when you get to eat the apple and foie gras inspirations that Chef Martin Picard and the Pied de Cochon team have prepared.

But first, here’s a little background on this magical event for all those who are not familiar with it. The Pied de Cochon restaurant has a cabane à sucre up at 11382 Rang de la Fresnière in St-Benoît de Mirabel (or if your GPS gives you attitude like mine, just Mirabel). Twice a year they have 2 seasons of what can best be described as food orgies. The fall seasons focuses on apples as the inspirational menu items and the winter one focuses on maple syrup. This current season is from the 23rd of August until the 27th of October and reservations for this had to be done well in advanced. In this case it was April 1st so you really need to keep an eye peeled for the invites. (more…)
