La Bonne Humeur, Montréal (Rosemont). September 15, 2014.
After years of passing by with my bicycle on my way to softball, the opportunity finally arose to try out this quaint neighborhood diner on Bellechasse. Without any signs or neons, on a residential street, and only opened for breakfast and lunch, the place is a bit off the radar. But as soon as you walk in, you can feel the love inside, or “la bonne humeur” or good spirits in english. For the record, two brothers bought this place a year or so ago, after it changed hands over the past 40 some years.
I had a normal breakfast, with eggs, toast and coffee, but ML was a bit bolder that day, and went for a side of rôti de porc, or pork roast if you like, with its own grease jelly. It was fabulous. Here, everything is homemade, and I can’t wait to try out their cod, which is, according to the cook and owner from Gaspésie (a fishing region), to die for.
Keep it up guys! And keep it real.
