Great food especially for brunch. Usually crowded and you may have to wait a few minutes for a table. Use of fresh herbs make the food here 5 star plus. Was served a glass of spoiled pinot noir and the waiter argued with me stating emphatically that it was "organic". So much for the customer always being "right". I'll still... More

The coffee and breakfast and paninis are delicious. I left with almond and chocolate croissants for later and they didn't last very long --- soooo good! Don't let the line up intimidate you - went fairly quickly and we enjoyed a great brunch. You can also slip and order to go and eat on bench outside of restaurant. The food... More

we loved this place. The menu was amazing and we ate so much and also took some to-go. We came back the next day and did it again. The place is hopping with business but these people are organized and know what they are doing. I loved the ambiance of kind of noisy coffee shop but this is a cool... More

We came into this small corner French cafe late on a rainy afternoon. No one recomended it because we didn't ask. It was on the corner of St. Paul and very close to our hotel. The place was of course packed with take out patrons and regular customers. The service was quick, friendly, and no frills. Everything is served in... More

When my husband and I got to Montreal at about 2pm, we were hungry. We asked the concierge at our hotel where we should go for a late lunch. He was quick to recommend Olive & Gourmando which he declared to be the best place for lunch at any time in Old Montreal. It was a short walk for us.... More

Ok so firstly let's set the record straight on this little brunch spot. 1. If you're complaining about the traffic Yes it's busy. It's busy Cuz it's good. If you want to eat somewhere where you don't have to wait eat at home. There's no wait there Cuz the food is probably awful and you are a terrible person with... More

After a 30 minute wait for a table for two, my sister and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch here. We don't speak French but gathered enough to order the Gustavo and Cajun Chicken paninis. A huge group of about 50 people wearing yoga attire came in for takeout and filled the edges of the store, but our food came out... More

Love this Cafe. Yummy sandwiches. Great service and atmosphere. Have gone with kids and always have great service. For sure can be busy in tourist season, but just adds to energy. As a Montrealer, one of my fave cafes.

Excellent choice for a delicious sandwich on the run! Viva las Vegas is amazing and very filling with both tofu and hummus.

great spot to grab a pastry or sit for a full breakfast. Wonderful atmosphere and food to match. The menu is small but the selections cover most tastes.
