Over on Fleury street is La Bête à Pain – a bakery with a twist and making a name for itself among foodies as having an impressive brunch. This came on my radar a while ago but since it’s in an area I don’t end up in often, it took a while before I made it up here. There aren’t too many brunch spots up on Fleury, let alone many fancy ones, but the area is changing and in a few years you may not even recognize it from how it is now. Already, signs of gentrification are beginning, so let’s see how this shapes up.
A Table – Nuevo Latino success yet again
Last year I had the pleasure of checking out Madre, which is one of the restaurants of Mario Navarette Jr, a chef who does Nuevo latino style of cooking. Madre was a hit and is one of my favourite brunch experiences so, when I heard that he had another place that did brunch by the name of A table, I needed to check it out. Situated on Fleury, in the Ahuntsic area, A Table is not in it the usual spots you would expect a cutting edge restaurant to be. Often we picture the Plateau, Mile End or Old Port but this location choice is quite interesting.
Sabor De Mi Tierra – Bringing you some Latin Flavour
Brunch comes in all shapes, sizes and tastes and I am always on the lookout for brunch places in new areas that offer menu items that are not only delicious, but different. So, when my friend told me about a South American restaurant that does brunch, I was curious. I had heard that there are only a handful of brunch places that have that South American flavour, so it made this trip all the more interesting.
When I first was introduced to Zagrum I was shocked how such a unique breakfast place would be on Fleury, an area you would not assume had an abundance of good breakfast food.
At 1st glance
At first glance I saw a pretty modern place that did not have that “breakfasty” look to it. Although every time I go I like the clean open area with tables all about, a good view into the kitchen and a nice terrace during the summer. Zagrum is also wheelchair accessible, although the washrooms are not.
