Let’s start off with Au Festin de Babette – 4085 rue Saint Denis.
Everything is good here, the brunch is sophisticated, yet heart-warmingly delicious, the desserts are numerous and not too sweet (just the way they should be!) and the hot chocolate is the best in Montreal – if it’s chocolatey goodness you crave, forget Juliette & Chocolat, go to Babette’s instead! You’re also in for a cozy atmosphere, flaky pastries and charming décor.
La Croissanterie Figaro – 5200 rue Hutchinson.
The pastries and coffee are exquisite but I must say I am more in love with the décor. Very much Paris during la Belle Époque… Don’t know about you, but my taste buds are happier when dining in a place like this.
Le Café Cherrier – 3635 rue saint Denis.
Undoubtedly a Montreal institution. I’ve had some of the best eggs Benedict here, and to be honest, having a café on that terrace on a late summer Sunday afternoon is one of my most cherished Montreal memories.
Patisserie Rhubarbe – 5091 rue de Lanaudiere.
This place reminds me a lot of Mamie Gateaux in Paris. The pastries are scrumptious, as are the brunches (the scones are to-die-for) and the décor is begging to be instagrammed 😉
