Montreal’s well-known Beautys Luncheonette seems to be youthful than ever on her 80th birthday

An institution like Beuaty’s Luncheonette, approaching 80 years in business, wouldn’t let a pandemic bring it to a standstill – though many imagine it happened on March 17, 2020, when Larry, Elana, and Julie took the famous diners announced closing.

Three months later, the son and two granddaughters of the Beuatys founder, Hymie Sckolnick, announced that they would use this break for a rejuvenation project. Despite the construction delay and other complications related to restructuring such an old space, June 28th was the day the team officially unveiled the new design and decoration and, more importantly, indulged their first customers with the What Beautys is known for: A comforting breakfast.

Having trusted HRH Design to restore the place without denaturing the essence of the institution, its mission has been positively fulfilled both inside and out. Chairs and benches made of bluish leather perfectly harmonize with the metallic side walls that characterize the diners of the 1950s, as well as a tile mosaic at the entrance with the official logo next to the reception, which proudly shows the year the institution was born: 1942.

In terms of food, we don’t have the full pre-pandemic menu, but the ultimate favorites are back: Mishmash omelettes, waffles and pancakes, the superbeautys, smoothies, banana cakes and of course the famous Beautys special with incense sticks salmon, cream cheese, generous tomato slices and red onions and capers on a Saint-Viateur bagel.

With its 80th anniversary in 2022, it’s safe to say that beauties have never looked younger.

Montreal residents can now visit the renovated beauties from Wednesday to Monday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
