As I mentioned in a previous post, Montreal has the highest number of restaurants per Capita in Canada. The number of places to brunch is most probably equivalent to this number, too. When it comes to choosing a place to brunch in Montreal, it ain’t no easy task — we are confronted with so many options in so many neighbourhoods too. However, there are a few everlasting favourites such as Restaurant Lemeac.

While we’re under the impression Lemeac has been there forever, the classic French bistro opened back in 2001 and has been running since. Lemeac offers a classic comforting French cuisine that translates very well into brunch.

This institution of south-east Outremont is mainly visited by locals but don’t be scared to make you’re way up there as you’ll find tons of nice shops, restaurants & coffee shops.

The brunch menu is offered all weekend from 10 AM to 3 PM. There is usually about ten main options for the brunch at Lemeac — as well as many sides. What is really great about this menu is that if you’re going with a group of friends, they’ll most certainly find something they’ll like in this menu — unless they’re used to eat bad food.

I got the Potato and leek tartelette, organic sunny side up egg, lardons & asparagus with Emmenthal cheese and it was very fine and delicious. My boyfriend got the Norwegian plate that consisted of salmon Gravlax, Nordic shrimps, caraway bread and cucumber salad — definitely opt of this plate if you’re looking for a great healthy choice.

How to get to Lemeac?

The easiest way around is to stop at STM Station Laurier and walk. At summertime, you can also bike with Bixi as there’s plenty of stations around.
