A cheerful flower on our table, I love that they mark the powder room with WC - very European!
My absolute favorite meal is brunch, hands down. There's nothing better than waking up Saturday, going on a quick run, showering, and heading out to regain all those calories... or only half waking up, throwing on big sunglasses and a scarf, and having someone bring you coffee while you catch up with a friend.
A few weeks ago my sister came to visit from Boston and I couldn't have been more excited for her visit. She hadn't been up to Montreal since I moved back from NYC so needless to say, we had a lot to catch up on and I had lots to show her - my new apartment, neighbourhood, and new favorite breakfast spot, Cartet.
Located in the Old Port, Cartet combines all the things I love about French food (fancy potatoes, flavorful cheeses, and an amuse-bouche before your order arrives) with the atmosphere of a trendy lower east side breakfast spot. They even have a mini market full of French delicacies to take home or to snack on while waiting for a table.
Lofted ceilings with edison lights give the decor a fresh and relaxed vibe.
Industrial details and wall art remind me of New York.
After much deliberation, I finally settled on the scrambled eggs with goat cheese, country bread, and potatoes cooked in duck fat. Healthy no, delicious yes!
