birthday celebrations at Garde Manger | birthday brunch

On Friday evening my girlfriend and I hopped on a train to Montreal to visit our friend. What ensued was a weekend filled with birthday celebrations of the very best kind. Celebrating friends has, no question, become my new favourite pastime. Warm Montreal bagels were enjoyed over tea with grandmothers (theirs, not mine, but I kind of wish she belonged to me), afternoons were spent manicuring (it’s a verb) and after many failed attempts over the last year, we finally managed to score a reservation at Chuck Hughes Garde Manger for a fabulous dinner (it did not disappoint). If there’s one thing I know for sure it’s that I’ve really mastered the art of a good birthday celebration (the secret: a beautiful city, outstanding food and amazing friends).

    Sounds fantastic! I haven’t been on Montreal in years, will have to make the time one of these days. It’s so hard when I only go home for a week or so at a time! My mum grew up there and I used to love visiting it with her – lots of great food and shopping ;)
