This is the busiest little place and for good reason. Be patient, wait in line, you'll be glad you did. Only disappointment was they were closed on Sunday so we couldn't go again.

All fresh ingredients, soups, salads, sandwiches, chocolatines, and other delightful pastries. Always a line-up, so try to get there early (although at this point the cat is out of the bag, everyone gets there early!!!!. Service is great, and very organized, friendly, and everything is delicious

My wife heard about this place on Yelp. She hit a jackpot because this place was unbelievable, the food was absolutely delicious. None of the other restaurants in the Old Montreal area were busy but this place was swamped, with a waiting list, for a reason. I had a cajun chicken sandwich and loved it. On my next trip to...

Recently popped in to pick up lunch. Super busy but always worth the wait. A half sandwich, 250grams of coffee, the best desserts and a refreshing tonic drink made with ginger and lemon. They have great Marseille soap. I chose lavender incense scent in a dark glass bottle. If you wait in line you will meet the most interesting people.... More

The coffee and pastries are the best ever! Staff is amazing. You do not have to speak French thankfully. Very busy. Go early for the spicy cheese biscuit.

Wonderful, inventive sandwiches. The restaurant itself is very nice but very crowded. I brought my infant son and they accommodated us without problems.

I visited her because my wife and my kids love Chocolate croissants. Unfortunately, chocolate croissants were all out at lunch time. I enjoyed their great almond croissants. I personally like its bright and lively atmosphere. For me, it is not a good place to feed my son because the place was so busy with many eaters. But I hope I... More

Wonderful bakery within the Old Port area; steps from the Hotel Gault. Arrive early though for the best selection as this place is no secret. For breakfast I really enjoyed the house-made granola with yogurt and fruit salad. The chocolate croissants are the best I've had outside of Paris. For lunch they offer a small menu of sandwiches and salads.... More

We stopped in on a Tuesday at 1000 and the place was quite busy. Nevertheless, we were quickly accommodated by the very friendly staff and had a fantastic coffee and brunch. The food was superb - especially the baked goods. We'd definitely go back again! Highly recommended.

We couldn't believe how great our breakfast paninnis were. Huge, we should have split one. Now we have lunch all ready! This is a busy place with lots of locals and great ambiance.
