Supernat

This Hochelaga-based hybrid café and wine bar is open as early as 9 a.m. throughout the weekend, and that means both hair of the dog cocktails and pour-overs are available with a steady menu of sandwiches to eat up: Expect kimchi tamago sandos with jammy eggs, ‘sashimi’ sandwiches of salmon, nori and wasabi mayo, grilled cheese with pulled duck, and more.

Ma Mère En Feu

Copy Link

“Ma Mère En Feu” translates to “My Mother on Fire,” and this new Rosemont diner, which shares a space with record shop 180g, certainly toes the line between home-style and ablaze with creativity. For brunch, chefs Beaver Sheppard and Max Corsillo are dishing platters that combine an akami mushroom omelet with a hot dog and chew cakes and another with lemon blueberry pancakes drizzled in a chômeur sauce and served alongside an asparagus frittata.

Barranco

What started with a restaurant looking to bring Peru to the Plateau has accomplished its mission and then some: Since September 2021, Barranco’s chefs, Daniel Silva and Michelangelo Miceli, have teamed up with Le Passé Composé’s Arnaud Glay to serve a menu of dishes like tartines with calamari, burgers topped with panko-crusted mahi-mahi, and saucy eggs Benedict served with sautéed octopus and squid.

Tiramisu

Italian-Japanese restaurant Tiramisu in Chinatown has recently added brunch to the menu, collaborating with chef Arnaud Glay to do so. The result brings French influences to the mix and ranges from sunny-side eggs on penne Romanoff to pizza with poached eggs, smoked salmon, and caviar.

Pincette

Copy Link

The latest addition to the Antonopoulos Group’s collection of Old Montreal restaurants, Pincette dutifully carries out its focus of serving a seafood-centric menu with a particular emphasis on lobster. That includes its brunches: Dishes like sardine tartine and smoked mackerel toast accompany the likes of shakshuka made with Nordic shrimp and poutines served with lobster, snow crab, and a bisque gravy.

Buvette Pastek

When this highly anticipated Old Montreal wine bar opened in August 2021, it couldn’t serve wine — but that quickly changed. At brunch, diners can enjoy all the mimosas, espresso martinis, and bloody caesars they want alongside plates of mushroom toast with ricotta, pancakes with Quebec strawberries, and a classic breakfast sandwich.

Sushi Okeya Kyujiro

Copy Link

Chef Takuya Matsuda opened his upscale omakase sushi restaurant Okeya Kyujiro in Downtown Montreal in January 2021, garnering plenty of praise for its dinner experience — he’s intent on offering a culinary performance from behind a wrap-around central counter. Now, the restaurant has become a brunch destination, too, with one 12:30 p.m. service on Saturdays and Sundays. Expect 15 mostly nigiri-based courses for $150 a head.

Shay executive chef Joseph Awad experiments with traditional Lebanese flavours at this Griffintown restaurant — and his brunch menu is no exception. He serves waffles with shish taouk-spiced fried chicken, makes shakshuka with an amatriciana sauce, tops pancakes with whipped labneh, and pairs eggs with lamb shawarma.

Drinkerie Ste-Cunégonde

Copy Link

Thanks to chef-about-town Danny St-Pierre, this Litte Burgundy bar has lan all-new brunch menu with bottomless mimosas for $45 and four shots for $12. Served on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., dig into brisket sandwiches with fried eggs, hash brown fries, foie gras cretons, and fried chicken poppers with pancakes.

Sunny's Dinette

Copy Link

Brunch isn’t just a weekend occurrence at all-new Sunny’s, which replaces Le Bon Vivant in Little Burgundy. All week long, the diner-inspired spot is serving eggs Benedict (with braised ham and Emmental cheese), bagels and lox, pancakes topped with whipped mascarpone and strawberry compote, and no-nonsense platters of eggs, potatoes, and choice of breakfast meat. Pair your pick with a cocktail — there are bellinis, mimosas, or the Sunshine, with vodka, orange and pineapple juice, and turmeric.

Bucky Rooster's Fritures

Copy Link

The minds behind St-Henri brunch royalty Arthurs are no longer affiliated, but that hasn’t stopped Bucky Rooster’s from taking a stab at everyone’s favourite weekend meal. Open as a takeout-only fried chicken joint in August 2020, it has finally flung open the doors to its chic dining room to serve fried chicken on homemade buttermilk biscuits; soft-boiled eggs with avocado, smoked red herring feta, and tomato jam; and a range of cocktails including a mezcal caesar and pineapple mojito.

Millmans

When it comes to weekend brunch, you can’t go wrong with the diner classics. This near-instant favourite in Verdun, open since May 2022, serves thick slabs of bacon, house-made lox, and superbly fluffy pancakes, with bread sourced locally from all-sourdough Miette and the honey bakers at Beecraft.

Ketiw Comptoir Cambodgien

Copy Link

Following up on their lunch and dinner services, this Cambodian sandwich and noodle shop from chef Tota Oung and Hillary Romero of Les Street Monkeys is now offering boozy brunches on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Enjoy bottomless mango mimosas for $30 while slurping bowls of savory kuyteav (all-dressed noodles with a side of pork broth) or crush a num pang sandwich or two.
