Get. Focused. IMMEDIATELY. Your favourite restaurant now does BRUNCH! That’s right, your go-to spot for Southern comfort food Dinette Triple Crown, now gives you another reason to brave the cold and line up for the sake of brunch. This has been one of my most favourite restaurants for years and it always on the list for my top recommendations in the city. Have you been? What are you waiting for? If the most authentic Kentucky fried chicken, biscuits, smoked brisket, collard greens and hush puppies aren’t enough to convince you to go, imagine what they can do for brunch.
I’m in a relationship, a peculiar one. It’s with a seductress, a tramp… and her name is brunch. I like brunch, who doesn’t? This weird weekend ritual where you basically eat breakfast foods at lunch and where having booze with breakfast is ok, but if you do it on a weekday, they say, “Jason, you have a problem.” I recently checked out the new brunch destination in Verdun. Have you ever been to Regine Cafe? The brunch mecca in Rosemount where is’ common to see lineups around the corner on any given day? Well, my friends, Régine café ups the brunch game and goes all in with their Vedun branch, Janine Cafe
Yes, you read that correctly! Icehouse! The Plateau’s beacon for the Montreal’s best Tex-Mex just added best brunch to their menu. The go to spot for buckets (literally) of some of the city’s best fried chicken and sticky ribs now serves that elusive meal that inspires people to get out on a Sunday morning early for the gram. I know what you’re thinking, “Wait, Icehouse has had brunches before, Old man Jason is off his damn rocker.” Yes and no. Yes, They’ve had seasonal brunch pop-ups in the past, and no, I’m not that old. So what is Icehouse serving you ask? Great question, you’ll need to sit for this.
