We ended up going here twice. Chocolate croissant and moca were great. Not stroller friendly but the waterfall in the hallway was nice and entertaining for kids while waiting for breakfast.

Great cafe to grab a quick breakfast. The hot chocolate was excellent but there was not a wide selection for breakfast. Probably best to get here earlier in the morning before they run out of things. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I would definitely recommend as it's only a short walk from the notre Dame cathedral.

We almost missed the breakfast nook. There are only about 20 seats in the Mon Cafe, but the tables are cleverly placed. We had the breakfast bagel with ham, provolone cheese and tomatoes. Very tasty! I had a cup of hot chocolate with a capital C. The hostess warmed up to us after she realized I did speak French. The... More

We enjoyed our breakfast here but it seems a little pricey for the food we received. The eggs Benedict with a very small side of fruit was $13 or so with coffee near $5. Croissants (filled) were near $4. We would return to eat here as the food was very fresh

My daughter and I had breakfast at Mon Cafe today which was a great way to start our food frenzy while on vacation in Quebec! Amazing croissants with eggs, bacon or ham, and all the fixings! My daughter said the hot chocolate was the best she's ever had, and the Americano was excellent as well. The croissants were so good... More

I'm in Montreal every month and I always stop by for breakfast. The best lattes, very friendly service. Small menu but everything is fresh, from scratch and excellent. Minutes from several hotels, Place D'Armes and Notre Dame.

It was nice and close to our hotel. We had difficulty finding somewhere to eat so the online reviews brought us here. It was snowing heavily outside at the time so I enjoyed being able to sit in the warmth and watch people walk by. I am sad to say that I found nothing overly special about the place. Food... More

Had the absolutely best lunch of my visit at Mon Café. Had the chicken sandwich with the tabouli, and would recommend it to anyone ever anywhere.

Unique little bistro in old town where we were treated to outstanding service and a delightful breakfast. Our choice was limited as they ran out of bagels and croissants but did a great job of making a terrific breakfast with an English muffin.
