If you’re anything like me, then having a baby doesn’t mean that life has ended. What it actually means is long lunches and brunches are now your best friend! However, not all places cater to your little one’s needs. So here’s a little guide to make it easier for you the next time you desperately need that caffeinated fix in the 514.
1) Maison Boulud
If you want your baby bottle warmed up, or your baby’s spoon washed and a warm towel brought to your table, look no further. Fine dining has really been redefined when you feel that not only your, but your little one’s needs have been met.
2) Être Avec Toi (E.A.T.)
Let me start off by saying, kids love the little W duckies. So look no further, as they are in abundance at this hotspot of Montréal, which is renowned for its exceptional seafood and brunches. And yes, you can take your kid with you!
3) Arthurs Nosh Bar
This one has got to be my favourite brunch place ever. It’s not ideal for little babies since they do not have a changing table, but grab your toddler and head on over for some phenomenal nosh. Maybe it’s because I’m Russian and seeing syrniki on their menu just warms my heart and belly, but even my non-Russian friends simply adore Arthurs’ gravlax and chicken schnitzel.
4) KESTÉ Pizzeria
Close your eyes and open your mouth, and boom you’re in Napoli. The oven was brought in especially from Italy to make you the best, most authentic, thin-crust pizza that will leave you wanting more. KESTÉ is perfect for an early dinner with friends or family.
5) Café Sfouf
If you’re looking for something a little bit low-key where you can chit-chat over coffee and a bite with a friend, then Café Sfouf is your golden ticket. They have a lovely kids’ corner with toys and books to keep your little ones occupied, a stroller parking if you’re on foot and a changing table.
