This place is run by volunteers who give their time so that the profits go to the associations the restaurant supports. There is also a "discharging room" where you can break a plate or throw stuff on the ground for a small sum. Very nicely decorated and can cater events like weddings too!

About 20 of us came here for our friend's birthday last Saturday night (Nov 12). First, the restaurant is a great size -- especially for groups like ours -- and really liked the decor.

Though they were not professional people - I mean it is not their regular job, they were deeply involved, kind and so sincere in their recommandations ! The atmosphere was calm and pleasant, which tend to be rare in Montreal.... More

My wife and I stopped in this restaurant for something cold to drink after an some distance in unusually hot temperatures for Montreal. I found out that this a non-profit restaurant and that the wait staff was made up of volunteers. Service in this airy and spacious restaurant was fabulous.

No complaints about the food but no omg must haves either. Tge menu is different from the website and they do have an english menu. Not sure if you tip like normal. Prices if you want meat around $20. It is a walk from the metro.

Atmosphere is super cool. Run by a family that seem to love what they do. Food is very comforting -- great for those cold winter nights. I don't remember many healthy options on the menu. Pasta was okay.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
