The corner of Mont-Royal and St. Urbain is the setting for Beauty's restaurant, the Montreal breakfast institution that has been in business for over five decades. Classic diner fare is served amid electric-blue booths, 50's style posters and an all-around retro interior. Known for their famously long line-ups (often out the door) and their equally famous "Mish-Mash" omelette, this is the place to satiate even the most unyielding of Sunday-morning diner cravings.
We always opt for their Beauty's Bonjour, a Montreal bagel with fried egg, melted cheese and delicious bacon, or their Beauty's Basic, which comes with eggs, bacon or sausage, a bagel, and home fries. Their french toast is also simple, classic and super tasty (though you'll be charged extra for some pure maple syrup). Top it off with a smoothie (classico, beauty's bleu, mango magic, beauty's rouge or my personal favourite, cookies & creme) and you have yourself the perfect recipe for one quality afternoon nap.
Least I forget, I must mention that their banana bread makes for the perfect mid-week snack, and that their rice pudding is sublime. Get some to go so you can sit back and enjoy the beauty anytime you want!
