Brunch is the one meal that Montrealers enjoy more than any other. Weekends are often spent gathering around a morning spread with friends and family. Countless restaurants offer brunch, but below are 9 of our favorite brunch restaurants in Montreal.

And what better way to recover from a night out at the festivals than with a hearty brunch?

Olive + Gourmando

Don’t let the long line ups deter you from enjoying brunch at one of the best spots in Old Montreal. Olive & Gourmando’s weekend brunch menu is always excellent. Their pastry counter is the stuff of dreams and the irresistible Poached egg on your face breakfast panino, a mix of spicy poached eggs with herbs and mayonnaise, raw milk cheese, speck, and slow roasted tomatoes, is also available on weekdays.

The Mile End’s best breakfast spot is definitely Larrys. The handsome restaurant’s menu is inspired by British pub food and includes items such as bubble and squeak, kedgeree and of course, a classic English breakfast platter. Always order a scone or two with jam and clotted cream as they are the best in Montreal.


The classic Outremont restaurant has been popular for any meal of the day for the past two decades. Leméac’s elegant French bistro-inspired décor and cuisine have set the stage for many joyful gatherings. The menu includes some classics such a French-style omelette or a potato and leek tartelette. Make sure to get a side order of their decadent homemade doughnuts.

Le Butterblume

The luminous Butterblume space is a busy beehive and a welcoming haven any time of day. Their weekend brunch menu inspired by the chef’s German roots is served Fridays to Sundays. All the baked goods, including the incredible sourdough bread, are made in house. Definitely one of the best Montreal brunch restaurants.

La Bête à Pain

With two locations scattered around Montreal, there’s always a La Bête à Pain close by to indulge in a decadent brunch. The three locations have a few things in common, including an incredible, market-inspired brunch menu and a wonderful bakery churning out some of Montreal’s best, baked goods. Indulge in their take on brunch staples and pick up a baked good or two.

Arthur’s Nosh Bar

Arthur’s Nosh Bar, located in the Saint-Henri neighbourhood, is a must for brunch in Montreal. Inspired by Jewish culinary traditions, this restaurant offers a unique gastronomic experience with dishes such as the famous smoked meat and egg sandwich and delicious challah French toast. The restaurant’s vintage dinner atmosphere makes it the perfect place to meet up with family and friends.

Byblos le Petit Café

Nestled in the heart of the Plateau-Mont-Royal district, Byblos le Petit Café is much more than an Iranian brunch restaurant; it’s a family institution where love and passion are felt as much in the kitchen as in the dining room. With authentic Middle Eastern dishes such as shakshoukas and mezze platters, the menu promises to take your taste buds on a journey.

Binerie Mont-Royal

La Binerie Mont-Royal is a Montreal institution that has been offering an authentic and comforting brunch experience for decades. Specialising in traditional Quebec dishes, this iconic bistro offers brunch classics such as baked beans, maple syrup crêpes and generously filled omelettes. All in a retro decor!


Located in trendy Old Montreal, Dandy is a little gem offering creative brunch in elegant surroundings. The menu offers an eclectic selection of tasty dishes, from stuffed avocado croissants to crispy waffles with exquisite toppings. The attention to detail, both in the presentation of the dishes and the quality of the ingredients, makes Dandy a destination of choice for foodies looking for out-of-the-ordinary Montreal brunch restaurants.
