Top of the morning to you. So it’s a lovely St Paddy’s day Sunday and you need some fuel in the stomach before you embark on a marathon of green beer and parade fun. Now I know some of you may say that Guinness itself is a meal, and yes I agree, but in some rare instances, you may need more than liquid nutrition. So we put together a list of various places offering Irish Breakfast on this most sacred day of green beer and green eggs and ham inspired dishes. Now we tried to get a detailed list but some of the web sites for the pubs have very little info on the breakfast part of the day. So after many calls and many “do Guinness and Jameson count as breakfast” jokes here is a list with some info. Please keep in mind my info is only as good as the answer I get from whomever answers the phone. I don’t offer more details as to if it’s good or not, that you need to see.
Montée de Lait – Refined brunch experience
Once upon a time I promised one of my good friends that when she came back from her 5 month European excursion we would go to this place called Bouchonné. Well, 5 months turned to 6 then to 8 then to 10 and we finally got a chance to go for brunch only to find that it had closed down. We decided to check out Montée de Lait instead sinceI had heard good stuff about their lunch and dinner service. You may be confused when looking at the map since Bouchonné used to be on 5171 boul Saint-Laurent and Montée de Lait was on 1424 Bishop but Montée de Lait moved a few months ago, and all the Google maps and various site listings are presently messed up. So, now that we have this mini mystery straightened out we can focus on solving the mystery of how the food will stack up and see if this place is worthy of all the foodie praise it has been getting as of recently.
