Not to sound like a food snob, but I'm going to sound like a food snob, I've been to a lot of brunch places. Even compared to some popular spots in NYC and London, I still am loyal to Lawrence as my favorite brunch place. The neighborhood atmosphere, the large portions, and simply everything on the menu is good.
I recommend: Pig's trotter. I'm not entirely sure which part of the pig is served in this dish, but it's delectable. The only downside is that you might fall asleep for the rest of the day, but napping is what Sunday is about, right? But also, the pancakes. and the english breakfast. okay I'll stop.

This place is really cute. And for some reason, everybody here is dressed super well which is always a plus for the overall atmosphere. This is a more expeez brunch option, but definitely worth the treat from time to time. Be ready for a line-up.
I recommend: brunch de l'atlantique. It also comes with a fabulous portion of fruits. This is my fave place for eggs benedict. The toasted coconut bread is also major yums.

I recommend: forgot what it was called, but it's the breakfast chicken burger. idk, it's not really brunch but there is a fried egg on it, so now it is brunch. But you might want to go for the classic english breakfast because it's served on a silver platter, and it kind of makes you feel really special for a bit.

Okay, so this place is pretty darn fancy for brunch. The crowd is posh and the Paris vibe is real. I do prefer a more cozier brunch place, but their food is pretty darn good.
I recommend: smoked salmon, poached egg on blinis. Can someone tell me what blinis is? Also, sharing a bowl of their jelly-filled doughnuts is a good idea.

I think this may have been the first brunch place i've even been to when I moved to Montreal. The interior is very artsy (duh) and the menu has a lot of unique dishes.
I recommend: the waffles.
