“bubbles”

And that set the tone for another great brunch with the famous Cousin.

To mark the occasion, we looked for a fine eatery with a friendly atmosphere. La salle à manger’s reputation needed no further recommendations and so, eager beavers, we showed up on its doorstep five minutes before opening on that happy Sunday morning.

Nicely patched distressed walls, long wooden-tiles bar, and homemade bread on display; the restaurant managed to capture within its four walls one of the nicest atmospheres anywhere in the Montreal food scene. The music creates an upbeat ambiance, although laughter fills the room than anything else. The staff is attentive and only chatty if you want them to be, and the food – the food! – is delectable.salle a manger mtl food snob 5Cousin went for the chicken waffle ($14): crisp battered pieces complemented by a delicate hint of sweet. Oh and between the waffles and the bird, a spoonful of dreamy whipped cream.

Sprinkled with coriander and chunky pieces of black pepper, it was salted just right and with a great smoky taste. salle a manger mtl food snob 8salle a manger mtl food snob 10 salle a manger mtl food snob 11 salle a manger mtl food snob 9 salle a manger mtl food snob 13All in all, we drank our bubbles and ate like kings and queens.
