“Le Toasteur Villeray” is a breakfast and brunch restaurant in the heart of Villeray.
The concept of the “Toasteur” has existed for many generations and in many places, but it’s within the Villeray neighborhood that it has found its second wind.
At the end of 2020, we decided to flip the table, both figuratively and literally ! We set to renew ourselves with a full revamp of the dining room as well as the menu. This was only possible due to our incredibly passionate team as well as our wonderful clientele that have shown their love for brunch for over 10 years.
