Beauty’s is a historical and iconic symbol of Montreal. One of the first places in the city to serve breakfast (according to the owner, Hymie Sckolnick in Anthony Bourdain’s Montreal episode of the Layover), the luncheonette is clearly imbued with history. Just take a look around the place – old-school diner style banquettes hearkening back to the 40s, the classic and timeless items offered (bagel lox, the best milkshakes ever etc.) and the multitude of signed posters of celebrities that have visited the restaurant are proudly mounted on the walls further affirming Beauty’s as an old favorite.
Known as a kosher friendly bistro, Tiffany’s offers breakfast (served until 4 p.m.), lunch, and dinner in the mid-town area of Montreal. Many of the diners that were there during my meal seemed to be regulars, giving the atmosphere a comfortable and worn in feel despite the size of the place. The big leather booths, metal railings, and the style of the uniformed waiters and waitresses bring to mind the decor and ambiance of Baton Rouge which can be a good or a bad thing, depending on what you like.
