Consistently voted Montreal's best brunch spot, this legendary diner is a must-visit, provided that you can deal with enormous weekend lines. Beauty's is neither hip nor health-conscious, but for wonderfully prepared breakfast standards, it has few equals. Piles of fresh fruit accompany every meal though regulars, spoilt for choice, have been known to leave it on the plate. On Sundays, aim to arrive before 10a or expect to wait upwards of an hour in line.
