Lili Co

lili co montreal exteriorBack in October a new spot sprung up on Mentana. This small 26 seater has slowly been making a name for itself and gaining fans by offering some interesting dishes in a lovely environment. Now you may ask who is Lili? Well, we did and it turns out it’s the name of the little girl of the owner born at around the same time that they opened, and although I personally have no children (that I know of) I do tip my hat to anyone who opens a restaurant and has a kid at the same time. Because, each on their own is an incredible amount of work. (more…)

Cafe Sardine – Iwashi Izakaya

The 411 Café Sardine is a place I have been to for dinner on a few occasions. I always enjoyed their menu and especially the décor. It has a tapas style dinner menu and some interesting combinations. It was one of those places that I always wondered what brunch would be like there.

Arts Cafe

The 411 Over on Fairmount, you will find Arts Café. It’s been there for years. I’ve passed by it many times without ever having the time to try it out. One evening, I was cornered by 2 friends saying that I never went to brunch with them. I felt guilty and scared for my life a little so we decided to do brunch and one of them had heard about Art Café so I figured it was finally time to give it a try.

Resonance Café

The 411 Over the years there have been more and more vegetarian and, in particular, vegan restaurants opening up in Montreal. This was not the case when we started. Finding a vegan spot in general was tricky and even more so a place that did brunch AND was vegan. You could always manage to get a vegetarian option on the menu since not every dish had meat in it so you were ok on that front. Nowadays some minor changes to a menu can allow a restaurant to offer a Gluten free option. Having Buckwheat crepes is one easy way of doing this but there are still many items on the menu that require a little more creativity to make them truly gluten free. So, when we passed by Resonance on Avenue du Parc, we were enticed to see that it was offering both a vegan & gluten free brunch.

La Raclette

The 411 For over 30 years, Restaurant La Raclette has been receiving patrons with its French and Swiss inspired menu. Within the last month or two, Restaurant La Raclette has begun offering a weekend brunch on the menu. When asked why, our waitress said that they wanted the brunch menu to match the dinner menu and respect the restaurant theme. Luckily, we now have a new brunch option a little more east, over on Gilford.

Royal Phoenix

The 411 Since I started doing this site, I have fallen in and out of love with Bernard street. When I first started, I felt Bernard was the place to go for brunch then as time passed I discovered new gems hidden in various neighbourhoods. Now, Bernard street was staring to get stale and some of my favourite spots were falling out of favour but some new spots opened up and started doing some interesting things and then, Bernard street started getting interesting again.

La Marmite

The 411 One day while walking down St Denis, I spotted a sign outside saying “Brunch”. To me, this is much like a light house signaling a ship. I meander over, I look at the menu, write down the address and add it to my list of places to review. I wish that weekends were more than two days and I can do brunch all the time but sadly we don’t live in that world so we slowly have to trim down the ever growing list of brunch spots.

Les Influences

The 411 Outremont is an area we are starting to explore again. Finally, after a few years there are some new places opening up. Recently, someone told me about this new place called Les Influences that offered a solid selection at a great price. Most Outremont brunch spots tend to be on Bernard street so finding something on Van Horne is refreshing since it’s kind of tucked away from all the crowds and line-ups.

La Lumiere Du Mile End

The 411 Over the last little while, Montreal has offered some Vegan and Gluten free menus. It’s a slow trend in general and for brunch, it’s even slower. Often people have difficulty seeing brunch without eggs or bread. There’s lots of dishes without meat but to be vegan and or gluten free is tricky. Also, to be clear – just because something is vegan does not make it gluten free and visa-versa. And there are some people who are both. So, where do you go if you want brunch and it has to be either something vegan or gluten free or both? Well, La Lumiere du Mile end is that place.

Roy Pendu

The 411 Recently I started helping 2 friends start a review blog called Montreal Food Divas. They specialize in dinner but my reward for helping them was a brunch, which is my 2nd favourite form of compensation (cash being my 1st). The challenge was to go somewhere nice that neither of us have been to before. This can get tricky with bloggers since I needed to find a hidden gem that would impress them but at the same time somewhere that would be new for me as well. Fortunately, with over 200 reviews in my stomach, I can get a feeling on what a place will be like without having eaten there. Roy Pendu seemed like it would fit the criteria of being somewhere new with a menu that is little different.
