Decorated with purple velvet booths and some rather interesting wall decor, Faberge is a great spot for hangover brunch. A few especially monstrous brunch options include a mac and cheese fritter topped with pulled pork and the S’mores Waffle. Expect line-ups as this place is pretty damn popular but definitely worth the wait.

Where: 25 Avenue Fairmount O


There is always a large group of foodies outside of L’Avenue for a reason: it’s unbelievably delicious. In addition to the massive smoothies and milkshakes, L’Avenue has a wide range of pancakes, french toast, and eggs benedict options. Still not convinced? L’Avenue is famous for a dish called the “Sweet-Salty-Crispy Eggs Benny” that is made with Panko-crusted french toast, poached eggs, ham, and hollandaise sauce. Hungry yet?

Beauty’s has been a Montreal institution since 1942 and for good reason. Not only does it offers the classics (in addition to their famous “Mish Mash”) and executes them magnificently, but Hymie, the Founder, is there greeting customers daily making this spot feel like a slice of home.

Famous amongst McGill students, McGill Pizza serves up a hearty and greasy brunch option for people not looking to spend a fortune. Despite the name, McGill Pizza is a brunch mecca on weekend mornings. Don’t expect anything fancy, but in terms of the basics – eggs, bacon, toast, and hash browns – McGill Pizza gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

What is key to Universel’s brunch menu is its diversity. The breakfast menu is absolutely massive, offering everything from an Apple, Bacon, and Cheddar Crepe to a Mexican omelette stuffed with red peppers and onions and topped with guacamole and salsa. Plus, with all day breakfast available, Universal is definitely a great option if you’re feeling a tad lazy and plan on staying in bed for hours.

Where: Various Locations


SuWu is much more than just a hip bar on Saint Laurent Boulevard. In addition to their tasty drinks, SuWu serves up some incredible brunch options. While the menu items are limited and subject to change, they will usually have at least one or two options that could definitely be classified as “hangover brunch” food. Did we mention they offer bottomless mimosas?
