Background on Montreal Restaurants

 

As part of my trip to Montreal, I did much research via chowhound, Fodor's, Frommer's, Yahoo travel, and other web sites on good restaurants nearby. I knew I wanted to eat at places that I can't find back at home. That meant French bistros and nice bakeries. But it also meant so much more. I learned Montreal really was a good town for foodies, with countless other unique dining experiences with restaurants specializing in items ranging from fois gras and Montreal bagels to smoked meats and poutine. Even though I was in the city for five days, I could've easily filled many times more days than that with recommended restaurants.

 

Context for this Particular Restaurant

 

La Brioche Lyonnaise has a good reputation for breakfast. And since I certainly didn't want to have the disappointing free continental breakfast provided by our current hotel again, there we went.

 

La Brioche Lyonnaise Review

 

We had a pleasing breakfast of:

  • a pretty good croissant. It was light and flaky, though not that buttery.
  • a pain au chocolat. Like the croissant but better because it's more buttery. Doesn't have much chocolate.
  • an almond thingie with cheese.
  • some good, freshly squeezed orange juice. (Why is it easier to find freshly squeezed orange juice in Montreal than in the San Francisco bay area?)

 

Our seats in a sunken patio along the sidewalk were delightful. We watched people as they strolled past. My mom thinks the location was terrific.

 

The regular seats in the cafe are nothing special.

 

The cafe also has a garden terrace in the back. When we were there, it was only occupied by one person, smoking.
