I went here for brunch on a weekend. The crepes with bananas, caramel sauce, walnuts, whip cream and custard were delicious! There was a very generous amount of walnuts on the dish much to my pleasant surprise. This is a basic cafe decor and environment...- however if you want great reasonably priced food, then I highly recommend. I will be going back.More

My wife and I stopped in today for breakfast based on the TripAdvisor reviews and we were happy we did. Expecting the place to be really busy found it just the opposite just prior to noon. Only a couple of other people were in the...place. Service was prompt and attentive. My wife had the traditional breakfast with tasty sausages, perfectly based eggs and multi grain toast and enough hash browns for two. I had the Montreal smoked meat breakfast. Generous portion of tender and tasty Montreal smoked meat and a huge pile of hash browns. Both came with a small bowl of fresh fruit. Well priced. Well worth a visit!More

We are relatives of the "Chenoy's" Family of Montreal , so we know what Smoked Meat should taste like. Universe Restaurant steams and Thin Cuts by "Knife" the Smoked Meat and service is Great. The Omelettes are big enough to feed two adults. We found...our Montreal Style Deli, Universe Restaurant would fit right in to the must go to places in Montreal like Swartzs, Chenoys, or like Bens, and Dunns used to be.More

We have visited Universe on numerous occasions and have left overly satisfied every time! It is a family owned and operated restaurant that offers the best of authentic Greek and Montreal style food! Their breakfast menu has a variety of different options to choose from,...with them all being very delicious! The service is fantastic, and the owners, who are from Montreal, are incredibly welcoming and want to make your experience wonderful! The best authentic Montreal Poutine in Calgary! Order anything with roast beef and you won't be disappointed or leave unsatisfied/hungry! Will definitely recommend!More

If your looking for a true Quebec Poutine in Albert the Universe Restaurant is so far the only place we’ve found. The portion are humongous and the Curd Cheese is the real deal. It’s a must go...

The food here was great! I ordered a crepe with fruit, bacon, scrambled eggs, and potatoes. I also ordered a tasty chai latte. There was so much food, and it tasted amazing! It wasn't very busy at all when we visited around 1 p.m. on...a weekday. There was actually an older man taking a snooze in one of the chairs (we found that pretty funny and odd)! The service was good and food was great, so can't complain!More

This is a restaurant for Montrealer's nostalgic for some Montreal pizza. The place is owned and operated by ex-Montrealer's. The "all-dressed" pizza is as it should be, not too thick, not too thin, with the right amount of condiments and cheese. Service is friendly and...helpful. They do go out of their way to help. I am told that this is a breakfast place, but it opens too late for me. Will return, for sure.More
