La Binerie Mont-Royal

367 Avenue du Mont-Royal E, Montréal, QC H2T 1R1, Canada

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.
