Lunch/brunch for 10 people in Outremont/Mile End
My daughter is getting baptised this sunday morning in the Mile End. I'm looking for a place for a lunch/brunch for a group of 10, casual style, in the area, so let's say Mile End/Outremont or not much further. Also, the place should not mind the possibility that a 7-month old might start crying at any moment... Any recommendation? Thanks!
The brunch at Bazaar and Anise are supposed to be excellent, but I've never been so I'll have to get others to comment how they would be for your party. But foodwise, they are a reasonable choice.
My general experience is that most places are pretty good about children.
You know. I know it's maybe too commercial for some, but Eggspectation is always a popular place for brunch, and it has a good vibe for a large party with kids. It is on Laurier.
Juliette et Chocolat on Laurier might also work, you could try and call to see if they take reservations. They do crepes, savoury and sweet, and also specialize in chocolate. I've only done the chocolates there, and hot chocolate, but others have mentioned that the regular food is also good.
Rumi is an Iranian restaurant on the corner of Fairmount and Hutchinson, it could be nice for your group if you want something a little different. There is also the Croissanterie Figaro across the street, which I haven't been to in a while, but I recall was good for brunch.
Senzala on Bernard is a Brazilian resto, and their brunch is different but satisfying. We have had some great brunches there.
Anyhow, a few suggestions to start... Needless to say, with the size of your group you would probably need to make a reservation, so you'll have to see if these places can accommodate 10 people. Good luck, and have a nice Baptism!
Just came back from Lemeac, and I noticed they have a brunch menu on the weekends. It is a little pricier that most brunches, but I'd be willing to bet it is pretty tasty. They could definitely accommodate a party of ten, and it might be a nice place after a special event like a baptism! On Laurier near Hutchinson.
Tredici on Fairmount right below Parc has a big space, a great menu and the last time I was there, there was a kid's party.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions, we ended up going to Leméac, and it was just pefect: great food, attentive yet understated service, roomy place (for the stroller...), not crowded, all in all a great experience! Thanks again!
