Montréalers know breakfast is the best meal of the day, particularly after a night out on the town. Whether you're looking to recover from a late-night revelry or fuel up for a day's adventure, this city has some great options-- healthy and not-so-healthy.
Join in the great Montréal debate over whether St-Viateur Bagel or Fairmount Bagel Factory have the best bagels in town, or on the continent for that matter.
The classic 1950s diner is a staple on the Montreal breakfast scene and while there are many versions of this popular restaurant, seating can be limited and reservations are unheard of, generally speaking. The turn-over can be quick however so the lines move well. Early birds are the clear winners here. Visit the Man of Grease at his family diner for the famous mish-mash breakfast, enjoy a café au lait with a freshly baked croissant at Boulangerie Première Moisson or get healthy with fresh fruits and smoothies Chez Cora. Looking for something a bit more exotic? Because it's Montreal, you can find breakfasts from all over the world, like the buttery date omelette at Byblos along with other Persian specialties. Like most meals in Montreal, it's hard to find a bad one.
