Now that restrictions on capacity have now been lifted and vaccine passports are no longer obligatory in Montreal’s restaurants, newcomers to the city’s brunch scene can confidently resume pouring mimosas and stacking pancakes. Not a moment too soon either, as restaurateurs look to recoup lost time and money by fill seats and stomachs with new brunch services.
Eater Montreal's brunch heatmap contains the newest destinations for consuming eggs, bloody caesars, and the likes on weekends, or restaurants that have shaken up their brunch service substantially. The best overall brunch restaurants (the "classics", if you will) can be found over here.
The last time this list had been published was just a bit over two years ago, so the names have been entirely refreshed. Now, noteworthy spots include the lobster-laden eggs Benny at Pincette, Lebanese twists and turns from Griffintown’s Shay, and the absolute prolificacy from Le Passé Composé’s chef Arnaud Glay whose work can be found in no fewer than three menus here.
Note that most of these restaurants do weekend brunches: When it comes to weekday options, check out our breakfast map.Read More
