This place hums. You can see it works like a well-oiled machine, serving tasty well-prepared food to those smart enough to walk through their doors. A great selection of food is set off by some great drink choices. Don't let the appearance of a crowd put you off. Go eat there, you won't regret it.

We waited maybe 45 minutes but there are some cute shops in the area that you can frequent. The food here was outstanding - we got the Reuben which was made with Schwartz's smoked meat, so we were happy to kill 2 birds with one stone. We also got the Housemade Ricotta "salty" which was a killer. The coffees and... More

But the line up will drive you mad. Go early and bring a friend because the take out tends to draw big crowds and lengthy cues. If you think you can get a table then go for it but you're better off just grabbing something and eating it on the boardwalk.

This place is fantastic! Although it does get a little too crowded during peak hours, recommend going there for either lunch, and/or coffee and dessert!

The Old Montréal neighborhood will charm you with its cobblestones narrow streets and very European feeling. In this charming environment, Olive&Gourmando offers amazing fresh and tasty food. Sandwiches are generous and my favorite are the Cuban with fresh cilantro and the Cajun chiken with mango. You also must have a chocolate muffin or a cookie (or two or three!) with... More

This place was really great. We were there on a Friday morning around 10 and had no trouble getting a seat. Had a chai tea and a coffee to start with and ordered a pecan maple cinnamon roll (a dream) and a cheesy scone that was surprisingly spicy! The staff was very friendly and we could have easily spend all... More

We stay in Old Montreal very time we visit and always try to swing by for a quick lunch. The food is delicious, staff friendly and if eating in...the setting is "cozy". Well worth the trouble when you dig into your order.
