When it comes to mealtime hybrids, nothing quite compares to brunch. A lunch-dinner hybrid, linner, doesn’t have an appealing ring to it, and dunch doesn’t sound very appetizing. Breakfinner, a meal between dinner and breakfast, could work, though…

For now, it seems like Montrealers really dig brunch.

According to a new study from, a UK-based credit broker, Montreal has been ranked as the top brunch spot in Canada and the 8th best in the world.

“The heavenly combination of breakfast and lunch, known fondly around the world as ‘brunch,’ is a phenomenon that has risen in popularity over the years,” says the study. “It’s become an event, with iterations of the meal popping up in countless restaurants, all with their own unique selling point.”
