If you’re going to do brunch in Montreal, you should go to L’Avenue located in Plateau Mont-Royal. Now, there will be a line outside, and you’ll have to deal with it…but, you probably won’t wait more than 20 minutes or so. Inside, the wall is covered in fun graffiti and a motorcycle hanging from the ceiling (don’t worry, it won’t fall if you’re sitting under it…hopefully). The music also makes the environment, the playlists are fun, with good energy.
If you’re an Eggs Benedict fan, this is the place for you, they have a wide variety of Benedicts to choose from. I figured they knew how to make a great crepe too, so, I went for the Whole Wheat Crepe with cinnamon baked apples and cottage cheese. Each dish is also served with their signature fresh fruit skewers. The crepe was delicious, light and had lots of flavor. The skewers are the perfect accompaniment as well, fresh and perfectly portioned.
And of course, real Maple Syrup.
Oh, and whether you need to use the bathroom or not, you have to go inside (yes, it’s black lit). Best party bathroom. Ever.
