La Bête à Pain

The house also offers a delicious brunch and lunch menu. Thanks to their gourmet and delicate approach, you can enjoy very good seasonal dishes all year long. Whether to take-out or to savour on site, La Bête à Pain never disappoints.
Le Boating Club
A staple in Laval, Le Boating Club is a neighbourhood restaurant where you are always warmly welcomed. The food is always good and the atmosphere is lively. The menu features seasonal flavours such as fresh pasta and seafood—a little wink to the Boating Club. On weekends, the restaurant offers staple brunch dishes including wood-fired French toast, and a Benedict poutine.
Les Enfants Terribles
Halfway between an English pub and a Parisian bistro, Les Enfants Terribles – Cantine is the ideal restaurant for a meal that is both chic and casual. Located in Centropolis, Les Enfants Terribles in Laval has quickly become a popular place to stop for breakfast or to dine during a shopping (or spa) session.
This address is a real institution in Laval for bagel lovers… but not only! The bustling address offers waffles, croque-monsieurs, and other sandwiches. At breakfast, their dishes are accompanied by a mountain of fruit and a small coffee. When lunchtime rolls around, the dishes are accompanied by soup, greens, pasta salad or a salad of the moment and a small coffee. While at Bagel Ste-Rose, we highly recommend the “Ste-Rose” bagel, with bacon, ham or sausage, poached egg, and Swiss cheese au gratin.
L’Antre-Nous Crêperie Bistro
Fancy a Breton crepe? From the menu to the service and the decor, all the elements of the restaurant take us to the other side of the Atlantic in Finistère. At brunch, the charming team also offers delicious omelettes, French toasts, and croque-monsieurs if you’re not in the food for crepes.
Does the name Ricardo ring a bell? If you’re thinking what we’re thinking, this restaurant serves in its beautiful bright space the recipes of Ricardo magazine. On Saturdays and Sundays, a brunch is offered from 9 am to 2 pm. The menu changes with the seasons and offers beautiful comfort food, grilled cheese sandwiches, waffles, frittatas, and banana bread.
