“Best Brunch in the World!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

I travel to Montreal just to eat at L'Avenue- it makes me the happiest kind of full I could be. The Oreo Shake is a MUST and the Eggs Benedict (chicken for me) are amazing. The French Toast with fruits is the lightest, freshest, yummiest toast I have ever had too. MUST GO

“Exceptional breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

One of the reasons we visit Montreal is to enjoy the remarkable breakfast at this hip restaurant. I'd advise arriving about 8:30 AM before the line is out the door by 9 AM. The service is relaxed and friendly, and the omelettes and crepes are amazing- the portions are very generous.

“A Must to Try!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Before even traveling to Montreal, I had seen this restaurant on Guy Fieri's: Diner's, Drive-in's and Dives. Although the man irks me, he definitely knows what he's talking about. There is always a line up out the door if you arrive after 10 am, but it is absolutely worth the wait. The menu is completely in french, but the staff are all bilingual and more than willing to help if you need it. The food doesn't take long and is always worth the wait. Try the steak and eggs. So much food, but absolutely to die for!

“My favourite breakfast resto in Montreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Every time I go, usually on the weekends, you gotta go early because around 10 am there is already a huge line up outside, anything I order is delicious, it's not the cheapest but the rich and colourful portions are so delicious and generous that it make it worth it.
The retro style environment makes it very distinctive and the bathrooms are uniquely cool.

“Fabulous Brunch spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

This restaurant is on Mont Royal avenue about 4 blocks from the Metro station after exiting the station at the Mont Royal stop-turn rt out of station and go about 4 blocks-incl info because we had to ask several times before we found it.So this is a very busy restaurant-not hard to see why after eating here.My husband had a very large omelet and the potatoes which were really good.I had the brioche french toast with rum caramelized bananas and nutella w/ bacon and their excellent potatoes. I must admit however after eating here we were ready for a long nap-due to the large portions!-and we didn't want to lose a day of sightseeing-and so kept going-albeit sleepy all day!-the menu was completely in French but the waiter was very helpful with some translations-this was also a fairly pricey meal- but was worth it-the quality and portions were excellent-highly reccommend.
