Why locals love it
With its striking purple accents and Montreal-themed painted walls, Fabergé is known among locals for serving up a hearty brunch. Located on one of the most charming avenues in Montreal (if you’re lucky, you’ll get a window seat facing the street), this eatery is where all the Mile End hipsters congregate on weekends – the lineup speaks for itself.
Why you should visit it
One taste of their fried chicken waffle dish and you’ll be hooked. Feeling extra hungry? They also whip up a breakfast poutine (yes, such a thing exists). Brunch is served all day, which means you can easily turn a breakfast date into a boozy brunch (Mimosas and Bloody Caesar are obviously on the menu).
A terrace opens up out front in summer, resulting in many lingering stares from passer-bys.
