Recently, I was given an invitation to a restaurant to try something I haven’t done in almost 20 years, brunch. Brunch is not something that I will go out of my way to go get, though it’s something that I’ve been thinking more and more about over the last few years. Well, there was no better time than the present to cross that bridge than at Café Grand in an area of the island of Montreal known affectively as N.D.G.

You must be wondering why on Earth is he doing a fifth post on McDonald’s, despite the fact that he tried to avoid the fast food giant with a vengeance. Well, on this Monday morning, a start to another long week at the place of increasing workloads, I found myself having a few minutes to kill. First of all, I have to give big time kudos to my bus driver for getting me downtown something like 8 minutes ahead of schedule, a whopping 17 minutes from home, across the nearly broken down Champlain Bridge, to the middle of the core of Montreal. Normally, it takes about 25 minutes.
