Visited Montreal for a few days and whilst out scavenging for breakfast on Saturday morning we noticed a small crowd forming in the summer sunshine on a street corner. We popped our heads inside and liked what we saw, so we added our names to the list, were warned the wait was 45 minutes, and started to play around with... More

This place was recommended by the staff at our hotel. We waited for a table, even though it was mid afternoon, and it was so worth it! The sandwiches were amazing and the coffee excellent. Unique flavours and combinations. Lots of yummy pastries to choose from. Will definitely go again next time we're in Montreal.

Olive & Gourmando is one of the city's buzziest dining destinations and with good reason. I was there dining alone beating the lunchtime rush. There might be a small wait, but it's totally worth it. The cafe and bakery has such a warm and cozy atmosphere, with its fun and eclectic style, and chalkboard walls. The food is beyond superb... More

Tried this place during my first visit to Montreal. It was very nice visit and very delicious bread and muffins. You have to try it specially in cold weather which is the case Everytime :) in Montreal.

In a great location at the Old Montreal you will find this great small pastry coffee cozy corner for breakfast or brunch. The French style pastry is very good, coffee is excellent and egg panini with chipotle is my favourite! The cafe is quite charming with simple but detailed decoration. If you go for breakfast go early to avoid a... More

This is THE place in the old city to start your day in Montreal, and lunch here is pretty terrific also. The baked goods are wonderful. So are the coffees, salads, sandwiches and everything else they have to offer. The decor is warm and cozy. The service is great. Pay at the register when you leave and drop your tip... More

We stumbled upon this place touring Old Montreal, I had a hot panini (The Pomme de luxe!) with some of the famous Joe Beef ham, local Quebec apples, tangy garlic vinaigrette, Île-aux-Grues cheddar and paired it with a Ginger infused iced tea... it was incredible! Great spot for lunch!

The café was recommended to us but not worth the long walk from our hotel on St. Denis at Rue Sainte-Catherine. The food was nice but overpriced, the restaurant quirky but crowded, noisy and tables too close together. I had a cheezy scone and a fresh squeezed o.j., my husband had the yogurt with fresh fruit and a double espresso.... More

While staying at the nearby Hotel Gault we enjoyed coffee and pastries at this charming cafe. Excellent chocolate brioche and cappuccino as well as yogurt and granola. I'm sorry we did not try the lunch sandwiches. Great little spot with wonderful happy staff.

We enjoyed the atmosphere in this restaurant very much and I was especially happy that the staff was knowledgeable about gluten and able to suggest gluten free options. My partner (allowed gluten) and I both had inventive lunch dishes that were very good. Also really enjoyed the iced tea elixir.
