Beautys, originally uploaded by susanvg.
Shot from my car while stopped at a red light.
Beautys is a landmark in Montreal. It was opened in 1942 by Hymie Sckolnick. You can hear him on YouTube They are known mainly for their breakfasts (served all day). On weekends people line up to get in for brunch.  Eat in a booth or at the lunch counter. I have to admit, I have only been there once, but family members from out of town go on a pilgrimage there when they come into town.

Note: if you are wondering why it is spelled without an apostrophe, it is due to our language laws in Quebec. Signs have to be in French so we have many places with names with absent apostrophes.


  1. Must have good grub to be in business that long. Interesting fact about your signage.

  2. The red and blue vehicles drew me in. Also great to log for a trip. And, great insight into why the punctuation absence.
    Haven't commented lately, but viewing and enjoying your photo stream, thank you!
