There's something festive about Montreal when the terraces open. Combine that with locals' and tourists' love of brunch service, and you'll understand the frenzy for having brunch on a terrace.
There's nothing quite as summery as a meal enjoyed in good company, sunshine, and a great atmosphere.
Order your coffee, your mimosa, and your favorite brunch dish from one of these restaurants for a lovely moment under the warm rays of the sun. As these places are very popular, we strongly suggest that you make a reservation or expect to wait a little while before eating.
