Obsessed with this place. Has been one of my go to brunch spots for years and never disappoints. Best eggs benedict in the city by a long shot.

We waited for over an hour on the sidewalk to eat here and I would do it everyday if I lived in Montreal. My breakfast was completely over the top. Watermelon infused water at the table with a fresh fruit tray is just the start....More

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals. We arrived at 10AM on a Thursday morning and were seated just in time to watch the line outside grow as we awaited our meal and enjoy the eclectic, artsy and lively, atmosphere. The hype was well-earned!...More

Not going to lie. The line was about an hour to hour-and-a-half long! We waited, as I've done in New York City many times before, for the infamous brunch. The selection was great- good for those like me who can never choose between savory or...More

Lavenue is a place where style trumps the food. It serves stylized diner food that is not gastronomical. We went, we stood, and we ate. I recommend the experience if you have the time. This is not a tranquil spot. You will be cheek and...More

This is a must place to go! The food is awesome. It does get very busy, even during the week so lunch may be a better option. It is only about 3.5 km from downtown.

Hi there! Unfortunately, L'Avenue doesn't take reservations, but if you can make it on a weekday morning, we should be able to accommodate you in no time!

They don't take reservations but well worth the wait. There is a second location L'Avenue St.Henri which is just as good, might have a shorter wait.
