Restaurant Review: Suwu (The Brunch Edition)

Suwu

Your neighbourhood bar.....and brunch spot?


3581 St Laurent Montreal, QC (514) 564-5074


Brunch is the most comforting meal and I usually look forward to the weekend for this exact reason. Work prevents me from being able to enjoy a satisfying breakfast during the week- I'm usually rushing out of the house and grab something on-the-go, so there's nothing like sitting down for brunch on the weekend, knowing you have nothing but time to sip on your caffeine-fix, catch up with friends, and wipe your plate clean.

See what I mean by comforting?

Surprisingly, this is my first brunch post! So I am very excited to share. For my birthday this year, I thought it would be a refreshing change to go for a boozy brunch with friends, instead of the usual dinner or drinks. SO...I searched for some good options in the city and discovered something exciting. Suwu offers a fixed price for "bottomless brunch"- ALL YOU CAN DRINK ($35).

The menu is small, but still has tons of tempting choices like breakfast tartare and fried chicken and french toast. Divided into snacks, sweet, salty, and sides, the plates are innovative and quirky mirroring the restaurants hip, alternative design.

The drink menu is equally enticing with varied punch bowls (for 4 people), and make-your-own mimosas (blood orange, peach, grapefruit, etc.). If "bottomless brunch" sounds like too much, one of these would be perfect!

When you make a reservation, request a table by the window (especially if it's a nice day). Its an open concept and the window is lined with plants creating a lush "terrace" feel.

The service could have definitely been improved. Our waitress was sweet, but we had to wait a while to order, and I was brought a birthday mimosa (sweet thought!) once I had already ate and paid.

Overall, it was a lovely morning and everyone left full and satisfied with their brunch. Having been to Suwu for dinner and drinks, I could really appreciate that they offer such an extensive brunch menu at reasonable prices. Feast your eyes on some of our dishes below!

Reservations: Ya, just in case.
Date night: More of a post-night-out catch-up with friends.
Attire: Your hippest high-waisted shorts + crop top.
The damage: $$

Mind, Taste, Love.
