My wife and kids and I stumbled onto O & G's on a recommendation from our concierge. It was a Friday, and was lined up out the door, but totally worth the wait. The service and food were outstanding despite the crowd, and if we didn't have the kids with us, I'm sure we would have stayed longer for another... More

Went there around lunch time to pick up sandwiches and pastries. It is a very small restaurant / coffee shop and I was a bit confused about where to line up for takeout. The queue was long, over 20 people ahead of me, but we moved quickly because the staff was very efficient. Basically the line up is a U-shaped... More

We stopped in for breakfast on our way to explore the city. WOW! It was very good and very healthy! I felt like I was in a cross between a Paris Café and a southern California health food joint. Highly recommend stopping in!

Loved this relaxes breakfast. My wife got ricotta, honey and toast. My son got a chocolate croissant. I got a cheese croissant. Cheese croissant was the disappointment - not enough cheese for my taste (barely noticeable). But it didn't matter. Great coffee and tea along with perfect other plates and a great atmosphere with huge open windows made this a... More

Upon recommendation of a Montreal friend we decided to try Olive & Gormando for lunch. We were a party of 8 and understood we might have to wait a bit for a table. After about 30 minutes we were seated at a long table in this rather small restaurant. The hostess was apologetic about the wait. The server brought water... More

This cafe was only a 4 minute walk from LHotel in which we stayed. This cafe really reminds me of the cafes that I visited when I was in Europe with the small tables and large windows. All the pastries were also displayed for you to choose. My friend and I ordered a brioche each and also coffee/tea. There are... More

It seems like everyone I know suggests a trip to Olive and Gourmando, so I was pretty excited to take an out of town friend for breakfast. Even though it was hopping busy we somehow managed to quickly snag a table. That's almost where the good part ends. It took forever to get a menu, forever to take our order... More

I can only say that this Restaurant is the place to go to. The Food is great and the Location is perfect. It is a small Restaurant, so be prepared to wait, but it is worth it.

Ate breakfast and lunch here on the same day and we were glad we did. This place draws a crowd but don’t avoid it because it looks too crowded – the staff is organized and efficient and in spite of what looked like a huge crowd out front we were seated right away because they have the most brilliant hostess...

Great coffee, great food and great service. Everything fresh, natural and tasty. Will be back every day I'm here. Had Fruit and yogurt granola and was all house made. Breakfast sandwich perfection. If there is one negative it's that paying once you have eaten could be more simple and too a bit to long.
