Movie Date & Brunch at Accords


This weekend was quite busy with work. But don’t worry: I had time for dinner and a movie with Hubby. (We saw sci-fi movie Prometheus... man, am I a good wife!) I also indulged in some shopping (yay, new flowered pants from Zara’s), spent some quiet time reading and of course, enjoyed my classic brunch-date with MC (for which I dressed up in my new pants, and Isabelle May bracelets).


This weekend, MC and I followed Zurbaines’ suggestion and reserved at Accords, one of Old Montreal’s new hip restaurants. First and foremost, let me tell you that both the terrace and the latte were to die for. Heaven! As you can see, the presentation of the food was exquisite. But would I recommend it for brunch? Well... not if you like traditional eggs and potatoes. My strawberry French toast with basil sorbet was certainly impressive, but I guess my tastes for brunch are a bit more primitive. That being said, I will definitely be going back to try Accords, but next time I’ll reserve for supper. After all, their claim to fame is their impressive wine cellar; and from what I saw, it’s a definite must-try! Hope you had a happy weekend!

  1. Love the photos. Love those sandals and the bracelets (love everything really ;-). I am still hoping for the whole outfit pics though. xoxo Danina

    2. Note the absence of my post today. Vision collision or just bad light, we couldn't get a good photo. Not to mention that I couldn't produce an intelligent word for the life of me. One of those days ;-) But I wanted to suggest that maybe the following Sunday (should you be free) we dress up and go for the high tea at the Ritz. xoxoD
