La Binerie Mont-Royal
This is whence all other Quebec breakfasts came from. Nearly 80 years old and as famous as Céline Dion, La Binerie is the oldest restaurant in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood, making it a classic in more ways than one: from its tiny diner space that has given cred to Avenue Mont-Royal for all these years to its traditional French Canadian dishes, like ragoût de boulettes and tourtière. Its breakfast is a greasy plateful of joy: the eggs-and-bacon combos are served with a small pot of cretons (Québec’s answer to pâté) and their signature house-made beans, which are different from the average sweet baked beans in that they’re white and savory – it’s up to you to add maple syrup tableside. All breakfasts come with bread fried in bacon fat.
