La Petite-Patrie: Two destinations for each meal of the day
AN EXOTIC BREAKFAST: Byblos Le Petit Café
As an avid brunch lover (and who isn’t?), she loves to kickstart her day with Middle-Eastern flavours at Byblos Le Petit Café on Laurier Avenue. On a beautiful day, the large windows open and the restaurant virtually converts into an outdoor garden.
A BREAKFAST WORTH LICKING YOUR FINGERS OVER: Le Vieux Vélo
She also has a weak spot for eggs benedict at the well-known breakfast restaurant, Le Vieux Vélo on Beaubien Street. This little spot, with its welcoming décor, is famous for reinventing eggs benedict and serves breakfast until 4 pm; so, sleep in and take your time. Her advice: go by foot because you will be smitten from the first bite and the stroll home will do you good!
A COLOURFUL LUNCH: La Maison de Mademoiselle Dumpling
For the best dumplings in town, no questions asked, she heads straight to La Maison de Mademoiselle Dumpling in Plaza Saint-Hubert. As you walk by this little restaurant, watch the meticulous work of the two women preparing the famous dumplings windowside. Her advice: while enjoying your meal, glance over at the dishes; the colourful bowls only add to the location’s authenticity.
AN OUTDOOR LUNCH: Laurier Park
You’re likely thinking that this destination has nothing to do with gourmet meals. Wrong! Our food lover tells us that Laurier Park is a cherished spot for family picnics and barbecuing with friends. In fact, when the weather is nice, she and her friends head there with BBQ and provisions in hand to enjoy a grilled lunch and a memorable afternoon. Her advice: don’t arrive too late on nice days… you won’t get a spot; this location is very popular!
A FACE-TO-FACE SUPPER: Montréal Plaza
Her restaurant of choice for an elegant rendez-vous: the Montréal Plaza in Plaza Saint-Hubert. She is never disappointed, she loves nearly everything on the menu. Even though the plates are a bit more expensive, it is ideal for special occasions. The restaurant’s façade offers a unique and inviting style, one that flawlessly suits her Instagram account @montrealplaza!
A FIESTA SUPPER: El Zaziummm
To enjoy an authentic taco supper, she heads to El Zaziummm on Laurier Avenue. From October 21st to the 28th, El Zaziummm will partake in Taco Week, a Montréal festival that celebrates the awesomeness of the taco. Ah, the perfect occasion to test El Zaziummm’s specialty in a Mexican fiesta atmosphere! Her advice: this restaurant with its mesmerizing décor, frequently offers promotions; check out its Facebook page to not miss anything.
Rest assured, you need not choose an individual location for each meal: try them all! Living in La Petite-Patrie means discovering cultures and flavours thru each new restaurant you explore. Don't forget to visit Le Roc Condos!
