Montreal's Best Breakfast? The best breakfast I've ever had in Montreal was at l'Avenue. I simply devoured the sucre et sel (sweet and salty). It's eggs benedict on top of french toast with real maple syrup and excellent fresh fruit. The combination of salty and sweet is perfect. Their hollandaise is from scratch and is exquisite. The smoked salmon eggs benedict - another winning combo. Each meal is served with great home fries in their own red mini Creuset pot. The food looks as good as it tastes. Of course, their lattes are smooth and robust and the orange juice is freshly squeezed. Portions are large and my boys shared french toast and still had difficulty clearing their plates. l'Avenue has a very vibrant decor and is a popular club in the evenings. Can't wait for my next serving of sucre et sel.
