This place is a slightly upscale establishment for breakfast. This is not fast food and not a $70 hotel breakfast but is somewhere in between. The choices are endless and are all fantastic. The Greek yogurt smoothies are just what the doctor ordered and are large enough to share. Many versions of Benedict are available, my personal favorite is the... More

We ate here most mornings during our last vacation. Good was great, service is fast and prices reasonable. My favorite is the classic, eggs, sausage, lyonnaise potatoes, baked beans.

I travel to Montreal a couple of times a year and always stay in this area. This restaurant is one of my favourites for breakfast/brunch because the food is great but even more, the staff are fantastic. They're always helpful & friendly. Great atmosphere and the smoothies are pretty darn good too.

Visited this restaurant for a late breakfast in August while we were vacationing in Old Montreal for a couple of days. It's in a great location and easy to find. With all the restaurants around, we ate here twice! Lots of options on the menu. The food was great and we particularly loved their delicious breakfast potatoes, and the maple... More

We had been at Eggspectation in Montreal several years ago and found a new restaurant in Old Montreal. Apparently it has only been open for a few months. It was terrific. We have not had as good a breakfast for a while. We often eat at out hotel or McDonalds but we thought that we would save ourselves for Eggspectation.... More

We stumbled across this restaurant when looking for someplace to eat breakfast. It's open early so you can eat before anything else you need to do. The menu is fairly large and we came back here several times. The pancakes, Belgian waffles, and omelets are all very good.

Me and my two year old went to get breakfast and it was very good! They had a good kids menu and the Eggs Benedict was very good!

If you're looking for lots of options for breakfast, this is the place. The menu is expansive -- something for everyone -- and the prices are reasonable. This is not a place for atmosphere or over-the-top food, but if you're looking for a solid breakfast at a fair price, this fits the bill. The service, by the way, was average.

I went into Eggspectation with high hopes. I heard it was pretty decent and, although right outside of construction, the place was pretty clean. The staff is mostly friendly. That's about all the good things I can say about the place. Out of three meals: 1 meal was cold (fries and a burger...) 3 soups were really really really old... More

Just a short walk while we were staying at Les Palace de Arms....the menu looked fabulous with choices for everyone in our party. Decided on the eggs with bacon and potatoes...don't know what they do to their potatoes but they were silky and delicious...speedy and attentive service - .free wifi was cool too!
