After a pleasant morning at la Cathédrale de Notre-Dame, a quick stroll down and you'll have the best brunch around. Affordably priced. Delicious food. You will not go wrong with the eggs benny. Or have some fluffy pancakes that would make perfect beds. My lady enjoyed a Bloody Mary but I fell in love with the freshly squeezed OJ. If... More

It was also very busy for early in the morning which is always a good sign . Fruit juice, two breakfasts, toast and coffee for two-$28, brilliant... More

They offer an outside terrace dining that allows you to people watch on a good day while the weather permits while... More

We had breakfast here our last day of vacation before touring the basilica. The restaurant is located just down the street. Service was incredibly slow in a restaurant that was almost empty. We never quite figured out what the problem was. Food was fine, nothing out of the ordinary. We selected Eggs Florentine - Two poached eggs, sautéed spinach and... More

As our hotel did not provide breakfast we were out and about looking for a good start to our day. This little restaurant was awesome. Near Old Montreal, they served great omelets and delicious lyonnaise potatoes at reasonable prices.

Our first visit but definitely not our last. Took our daughter to breakfast after moving her into her college apartment. The place was bustling with activity. Great waitress, prompt coffee and water, delicious food and all at a terrific value. Our daughter said the pancakes were the best she'd ever had, and the Lyonnaise potatoes are yummy!

Varied menu with a focus on eggs, and breakfast food. Good service and reasonably priced (about $15 an entree). We came early and had no wait and sat outside.

We ate breakfast here one morning during the MTL JazzFest because we were staying in the Hyatt. The atmosphere is lively as it faces a busy pedestrian corner and plaza. There's some limited outdoor seating on the patio. The plates remind of a slightly gentrified truck stop. The food was filling but not particularly healthy. A decent stop, but probably... More

Wife and I both had eye opener breakfast, 2 eggs, toast, home fries, 1 slice of watermelon , pineapple and grapefruit.. 7.50 in an area of 18 dollar breakfasts. Total 28.00 with 1 B Mary and tip. Filled on Sunday morning, a full house is never wrong.

Stumbled across this little gem while visiting on our 10th wedding anniversary. Whilst from the outside the place looks a little bit bland the food is devine. The fresh pressed juices are thick and filling in their own right. I had eggs benedict on both visits and cannot fault either. It was the best I have ever tasted. I also... More
