Laura Broomhead

Montpellier is a hip and trendy Mediterranean city in the South of France. Écusson, Montpellier’s old town, is the oldest and most central part of the city and always boasts the latest trends, which means that here you’ll find an abundance of sublime brunch and late breakfast spots. Here’s our list of the top 10.

Fruit smoothies

1. Delecto

Cafe, Juice Bar, Coffee Shop, Healthy, Vegetarian, Vegan

Delecto, hidden in plain sight in the very heart of Écusson, is one of Montpellier’s health-food savvy brunch and breakfast spots. The cafe is mainly focused around its delicious and varied juices made from fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables, which you can enjoy in the light and open cafe or on the AstroTurf-covered terrace outside. The special brunch offer available on Saturdays and Sundays, which comes with tea or coffee, one of Delecto’s famous smoothies, artisanal breads and the ‘dessert of the day’, is particularly popular, so booking ahead is advised.

2. Le Pré Vert

Restaurant, Brasserie, Cafe, Mediterranean, French, Vegetarian

Le Pré Vert in Montpellier’s old town is open from early in the morning until late at night and serves a variety of wholesome and delicious meals. It is the cafe-cum-restaurant’s brunch, however, that is really something to look forward to. There are two brunch options to choose from, and both include a selection of sweet and savory foods prepared fresh on site. The more expensive option also comes with toast with butter and jam, a large hot drink and a glass of freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice.
