visited this Restaurant on a Sunday lunchtime & it was very busy - locals as well as tourists - very good sign! Friendly waitress found us a table after a short wait & we each had the most delicious french onion soup & one portion of 'Tartine Legumes' between us, which was plenty for a lunch. We had just arrived... More

Hats off to the guy who served us although he did mess up my husband's order. He also forgot my friends pudding. The manager was very rude to the waiter throughout the meal which made us feel uncomfortable. There was a tip that we left at the end of the meal considering we paid a substantial amount for the food.... More

We found this cafe on our last morning after wandering down from our hotel looking for breakfast. It was very busy when we arrived and as we basically couldnt be bothered walking any further went it. We weren't disappointed. We were seated fairly quickly given how busy it was and a booster seat provided for my 2 year old daughter.... More

We stayed at the Chateau Laurier and ate breakfast at Cosmos both days of our stay. Everything everybody had was excellent. Our breakfasts ranged from eggs to crepes to French toast to eggs Benedict. The quality of the food, particularly the sides of ham and sausage was excellent. The home fries are terrific. A most enjoyable breakfast (both mornings!)

We had a great breakfast here. My wife said these were the best eggs benedict she ever had. My oatmeal was the best I had had. Service was excellent and it is an attractive place in which to dine

Our package deal hotel breakfast was so bad on the first day that we came to Cosmo on the second day, and it was worth it. Everything as it should be, and great service too.

We went here for breakfast twice on our four day stay in Quebec. Terrific restaurant. The food was great and reasonably priced. The wait staff was excellent. If you go, be sure to use their bathroom. It's unique.

We enjoyed our first visit at Cosmos that had to return the next day! The food was excellent and the staff were amazing! We were served by William and Marc - Antoine. They made our visit very special. Top class place and would recommend for sure.
