Brunch 7 Days a Week: where to go?

Of course, we A-D-O-R-E Brunch. If there was one meal that we could eat every day of the week, brunch would be it. Sweet or savoury, breakfast or lunch, it is truly the holy grail of meals. This special course truly has something satisfy everyone! The only downfall of this wonderful meal is that it is usually reserved for the weekends, between the hours of 10h-13h. This is not even close to enough to satisfy our brunch cravings.

Well luckily for you, it turns out you CAN eat brunch everyday of the week! We have compiled a list of the few and far between restaurants that serve brunch 7 days a week! Not only do these addresses extend the regular brunch hours, but they also are all great restaurants in general.

Did you know that the concept of brunch actually originated from England, but became popular in North America during the 1930s? We are lucky enough to be living in the era of brunch popularity, but we are even luckier to have access to restaurants that serve this meal every single day! If you are a lover of pancakes and syrup, eggs and bacon, Lox and cream cheese, or breakfast sandwiches, this is the list for you.

If you know of any other addresses that serve brunch 7 days a week that should be on this list, please let us know at [email protected]! We also encourage you to sign up for our news letter so you can keep track of all of Montreal’s culinary developments.

If brunch is not your thing (for some crazy reason), we also have a full roster of lists to satisfy any craving! Check out the best addresses to go on a cheap date, the best BYOBs in the city, and the best addresses to satisfy your munchies!

Beautys Luncheonette is a luncheon institution in Montreal, located at the corner of Mont-Royal and St-Urbain, Opened in 1942, the establishment casts a spotlight over Montreal! Since it opened over 70 years ago, the menu at Beautys has hardly changed; it serves generous brunches including omelettes, Beautys basics, Superbeautys, macaroni and cheese, pancakes, waffles (all served with an excellent homemade whip). Our personal favourite has to go to the restaurant’s amazing brunch sandwich and their banana bread. Beautys is open from 7 am to 3 pm on weekdays and from 8 am to 4 pm on weekends.

Dépanneur le Pick-up is one of those mythical establishments that perfectly represents the unique, bohemian and creative side of Montreal. Since 2008, this small convenience store has been a pioneer both in its concept and its neighbourhood, the Mile-Ex. On the side of brunch, they serve simple and tasty dishes to enjoy in their unique atmosphere, inside the convenience store or on the terrace in the summer. We particularly like their breakfast sandwich, brunch tacos, and delicious potatoes! We also like the place because they serve their brunch menu 7 days a week!

On an old school blackboard, you’ll find Brouillade with basil pesto and feta, a breakfast sandwich with bacon or ham, French toast with bacon, cheddar and fried egg on avocado toast, salmon gravlax, or Helene granolas offered every day of the week. Best of all. the staff is always smiling, accommodating and pleasant, which adds a lot to the charm of the address.

We come here to enjoy an excellent breakfast, have a coffee, or show tourist friends how well we eat in this wonderful city. For brunch, you can enjoy homemade granola, Cha-Cha-Chia Bowl, fruit salad, homemade ricotta, and Panini “Poached egg on your face” every day of the week.

Restaurant Well is a newcomer to Verdun, located on Wellington Street. The place specializes in breakfast, and they certainly do a good job! The décor is quite charming, and stands out amongst its neighbours. Here, we eat lunches and brunches, all served in generous and equally delicious portions. Restaurant Well offers an impressive brunch poutine, served with pickles and a mirror egg, and a superb salmon gravlax toast with edamame and arugula. The place can also adapt some of its dishes for any vegetarians out there! There is something for everyone!

In the heart of the Mile-End, at the corner of Fairmount and Esplanade, you will find Arts Café. It is one of the neighbourhood’s most popular establishments! As one of the most beautiful coffee shops in Montreal, Arts Café invites you into its magical, warm and intimate atmosphere. Its simple menu offers very good brunch dishes at very affordable prices; Shakshuka, French toast prepared with Guillaume’s brioche, poutine with duck confit and many other delicacies. Friendly and elegant, the Arts Café has also removed wifi from its establishment, which has driven most computers away to make way for conversations. We like it very much.
