We had seen Eggspectation on our first walk through Old Montreal, so we tried it the following morning for breakfast. The menu is very big, with lots of breakfast choices, including some great signature dishes. Great omelettes, Eggs Benedict and french toast. Excellent service as well. So good, we went there two mornings in a row.

We randomly chose this for our breakfast place. The meal was quite good. Eggs were no runny. The potatoes were delicious. French toast was light and airy.

I avoided this place because of the tacky name but when I finally was forced to try it I was pleasantly surprised by the good food and service.

I've made it a ritual when arriving into Montreal late night... next day I wander over for very late, leisure breakfast... excellent latte's... fruit was a little soggy... please don't serve soggy fruit, looks old. But, nevertheless enjoyed my Smoked Salmon Benedict... I love the Latte's and location works very well.

We dined here twice while on our six day vacation and enjoyed it both times, it's rare we go back to the same place while on vacation so that was telling for us. The staff was friendly,food good, service a little slow for not being overly busy. Great location near the heart of Old Montreal.

We went on a Sunday, racing day too. It was very busy and we had to wait for a while. It was worth it. We had a great brunch sitting out on the terrace. Try the pancakes with strawberries or one of the omelettes, they were very good.

My wife and I went to Eggspectation a couple of years ago and have been going there whenever we go to Montreal. The place is amazing and is one of the best breakfast places I've been to. There are several locations and we've been to them all, but reviewing the one we went to for the very first time.

Our group had an excellent breakfast here before heading to Quebec City. It was absolutely delicious. Food was made to specific order despite being a group of 40+ people. The restaurant has a very modern trendy decor. It was very clean and the service was excellent.

I'm one of those folks who could eat breakfast all three meals of the day. And while I do try to avoid the sort of hyperbole I use in the headline and review, in this rare case, it's true. From among their many more imaginative and complex offerings, I chose the very basic American Breakfast: 2 eggs, bacon, sausage and... More
