Valentine’s Day brunches: Our suggestions

Brunch de Saint-Valentin

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is in the air—and also on our plates. Couples might plan some quality one-on-one time, while singles may plan a cozy evening or outing by themselves or with friends. However you celebrate, we can’t deny that marking the day with some good food is always a good idea.

Sometimes the simple attention of a breakfast in bed is more appreciated than a shower of extravagant gifts. Love is beautiful, it’s sweet, and your Valentine’s Day morning deserves to be too.

Here are a few restaurants that are offering brunch menus either in-house or to-go, so you can stay comfortable under the covers, or enjoy a long-awaited meal out!

If you’re looking for more gourmet ideas, check out our list of special Valentine’s Day takeout menus. If you’re lacking in inspiration this year, here are a few Montreal-based lists that might help guide you: Our favourite chocolate shops, the best cookies, local florists that offer home delivery, the best pastry shops, and restaurants open for take-out.

With that, we hope you have a lovely Valentine’s Day!

Patrice Pâtissier

We admit to cheating a little… The Patrice Pâtissier breakfast box is not exactly a brunch, but if you’re like us and like sweets at the crack of dawn, then this is the menu for you. It is their tradition to offer a box containing three new gourmet creations. This year you’ll find two classic kouign amann, two blueberry scones, and two banana cakes. For $21, you’ll receive all three desserts plus a bag full of goodies!
