Brunch de fete des mères où aller au resto ? Montreal

Mother’s Day is around the corner (May 14th!) and in honour of the celebration of the world’s most extraordinary beings, we’ve put together a list of some great brunch suggestions for you to enjoy with her.

In our list, you’ll find suggestions for brunch places for every type of mom. Whether it be a chic, relaxed, festive, or classic spot, we have you and your mom(s) covered! After all, Mother’s Day is her day to be spoiled, so offer her an outing that she’s going to remember!

If you’d like even more great suggestions for the occasion, check out our list of Montreal’s best brunches, patio brunches, Montreal tearooms or even our list of the best croissants in Montreal if you’re entertaining at home.

We would also like to thank every mom out there for all they do. Thank you for always thinking of others, for having energy hidden we don’t know where, and for always having our backs. Life would not be the same without you, that’s for sure!


Classic Brunch: Leméac is a cherished institution and one of the best French restaurants in Montreal. It also happens to be a favourite in the city for a classic brunch, especially for Mother’s Day. Leméac’s quality is consistent, and its brunches, like the rest of the menu, are absolutely delicious. In an elegant and classic decor, you will enjoy a simple, very well executed and comforting brunch menu. We especially like the poached egg and smoked salmon blinis and the large plate of delicious fresh fruit, yogurt and homemade doughnuts.

Chic & Original Brunch: The Sofitel Hotel’s restaurant is one of the best French restaurants in Montreal, and Chef Olivier Perret prides himself on using local products. This chic restaurant offers nice intimacy and has very attentive staff. For Mother’s Day brunch, the house is offering a superb menu: appetizers, charcuterie and cheese platters, seafood, fresh salads, eggs Benedict… and more! All for $100. Oh, and there’s even a candy bar.

Salon de thé cardinal

Original Brunch: The Cardinal Tearoom is a unique, charming and magical Montreal address. In its welcoming and classy atmosphere inspired by the 20s, the decor of the Tearoom transports you. Scones, muffins, small sandwiches or a farmer’s plate, breakfast here is always a lovely experience. There are almost two dozen tea choices on the menu, as well as a few specials. Perfect for an original brunch in a relaxed atmosphere!

Original Brunch: When Mesòn opened its doors—after the success of Tapeo—the chef Marie-Fleur Saint-Pierre expressed on social media how happy she was to finally have a restaurant that offered brunch. In an elegant and warm decor, you will find churros y dulce de leche to die for, habas con jamón (beans and ham) and, a particular favourite, the chicken and pork chili which is absolutely irresistible. The original Spanish-inspired bistro invites you to return. Reserve your place quickly for brunch on Sunday, May 14!
