Montreal: Au Pain Perdu aka Le Pistou Déjeuner

cute name, so why then, are there two?

Lost Bread.  Cute right?  It's also called Le Pistou Déjeuner.  As to why? Your guess is as good as mine.  I'm sure Google, Yahoo or Bing knows?  It's irrelevant to my review.

This was my last brunch before I headed back to Toronto.  It was good.  It wasn't top tier, but I would likely go again.

There was quite a long line, but it was all one party, so we got seated fairly quickly, 5 minutes in fact.

Au Pain Perdu is a casual dive that serves up your usual brunch fare - benedicts, eggs plus, pancakes, etc.  

I opted for the classic eggs benedict (missed it because Saturday I ate Le Cartet), while my sister had the two eggs plus bacon, ham, and sausage.  My benedict was good, although my hollandaise was thick enough that I could have molded little figurines.  It looked as if they had put the plate under a salamander or something because my hollandaise had a top crust.

My sister's was what you'd expect:

Looks very blase doesn't it? It sort of was.
It was greasy spoon brunch.  Perfect for a jeans and T Sunday.
