You can get take out lunches and soups etc. The restaurant is set up like a breakfast spot but with more local atmosphere. Food was good and service to match. In the summer they have a patio right on McGill.. We enjoyed it enough to...More

This is a popular place for brunch and gets busy on the weekends. But the food is worth the wait, everything is fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. Service is prompt and friendly, highly recommend. Note that a grand latte/cappuccino is served in a bowl.

Our concierge sent us here for our first breakfast in Montreal. It totally spoiled us. The scrambled eggs with goat cheese were unbelievable. And my cappuccino was perfect. My partner’s brunch was beautiful. I don’t remember the name of it. Started with orange juice and...More

The eggs with goat cheese might have been one of the single best servings of eggs I've ever had. Everyone's food was delicious and presented beautifully. Server was very friendly

I was looking for a quiet restaurant, but this lovely place charmed me and my wife! We enjoyed every second of our night and we will comeback for sure! Service was a bit long..

We enjoyed our breakfast there on a cold January day. They use high quality ingredients for their tasty meals. I really liked the artsy decor which for me is just as important as the food itself (if not more ;-) Highly recommend.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

We waited 5 minutes for 5 of us. It has a large accommodation however that is probably the busiest time of day on the weekends for anyone. You will have to take a chance and you won’t be sorry you did. Service is quick... More

I don't think they take reservations and I imagine it would be crowded. On the other hand, service is pretty efficient and I think they turn tables over fairly quickly. Enjoy if you go.

Try the traditional breakfast of eggs, ham, bacon, potatoes, bake beans and toast. It's served in a skillet and it's very good. However everything on the menu is really good.
