The Best Boozy Brunches in Montreal

Montreal’s food scene is creative, diverse and offers unique experiences to suit all tastes. Weekends are synonymous with relaxation and quality time with friends or family to enjoy these experiences.

We’ve already compiled our list of the best brunches in Montreal, places to brunch with the kids and places to brunch every day of the week. When you’ve got the time, it can be nice to extend your brunch with a few mimosas or cocktails and spill over into lunch. Whether it’s for a celebration, a birthday or simply to enjoy with friends, any occasion is a good one to sit down and toast the weekend.

So, for the bon vivants and lovers of a boozy brunch, here’s a list of the best places to brunch, with a mimosa (or two) in hand.


With its comforting dishes and enveloping decor, Dandy is a new address in Old Montreal where people like to linger from morning until afternoon.

244 Rue Saint-Jacques


Head to Chinatown to enjoy one of the new players in the area, Tiramisu. It’s delicious and well worth the detour!

989 Boulevard Saint-Laurent


Barranco offers a brunch menu from Friday to Sunday in collaboration with Arnaud Glay from Passé composé. Enjoy a variety of Peruvian-style dishes featuring poached eggs. Incidentally, the brunch menu comes with an unlimited mimosa option – the dream!

4552 Rue Saint-Denis

Régine Café

Régine Café is all about pampering. Even before you order, you’ll be treated to a morning shot of freshly squeezed juice. After that great start, you’ll find a dozen well-executed breakfasts on the menu (concocted by chef Jean-Philippe Côté, Pierre-Luc and Charles).

1840 Rue Beaubien Est

Café Monk

Open from 7:30am on weekdays and until 11pm from Tuesday to Saturday, Café Monk is a hybrid café, restaurant and buvette. During the day, the same generous all-day brunch menu is served as at Well: classic breakfast plate, breakfast sandwich and breakfast poutine, shakshouka, huevos rancheros, grilled cheese with duck confit, etc.

6270 Boulevard Monk

BarBara Vin

BarBara is a lovely address that opened on rue Notre-Dame Ouest on 26 January 2021 with a multi-faceted concept. First and foremost, BarBara is a wine bar where good juice flows freely at affordable prices, with a dispensa (mini grocery store in Italian) and coffee service for early risers. On top of that, they offer a decadent brunch menu.

4450 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest


Here, Mickaël Fischer is in charge of the menu. You’ll find revisited French classics at relatively affordable prices. Foiegwa also offers one of the most decadent brunches in town on the weekends.

3001 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest

Tsak Tsak

Tsak Tsak is the kind of family-run restaurant where you’ll feel right at home. You’re greeted with a smile from Monday to Friday and always leave with a full belly.

200 Rue Beaubien Est

La Fabrique

La Fabrique bistro offers a winning formula: generous dishes served in a warm atmosphere and a fantastic brunch menu. We revisit to La Fabrique for their comfort food, charming staff and friendly atmosphere.

3619 Rue Saint-Denis


Think of larrys as a European café; a place that’s open all day, seven days a week, where you can come for a coffee and a snack for brunch, lunch or dinner.

5201 Boulevard Saint-Laurent

Le Darling

We particularly like this bar’s unique decor and the fact that it’s also a superb café. You can work here during the day and finish off with a few drinks and some great food with friends. The place is perfect to hang out or have a drink at any time of day. A great success!

4328 Boulevard Saint-Laurent

Bishop & Bagg

The pub serves a popular brunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays between 10am and 3pm. You can enjoy curried lentils and poached eggs, benedicts, prawns, homemade yoghurt and granola, grilled cheese, steak, baggs burger, Full English 16 (one of our favourites) and folded crêpes (another of our favourites).

52 Rue Saint-Viateur Ouest

Shay MTL

Shay is the perfect address for your group outings! It’s beautiful, very good and affordable too. It’s become a must in terms of Middle Eastern brunches.
