That's how my wife described our meal. This is a better IHOP for those familiar with the US chain. It reminded me of Wildberry in Chicago. Tons of creative choices, and perfectly adequately constructed. Ingredients were not amazing, but food was tasty. Overall it was a good value. I'd probably prefer a local place that wasn't a chain, but I'd... More

PROS: Great eggs Benedict, sizeable menu to choose from, well priced, staff were capable CONS: Busy so service wasn't at its fastest (they were probably understaffed), seats not very comfy Not much was open on new year's day 2015, but everyone seemed to know about Eggspectation downtown Montreal: it was packed with people and took a short wait to get...

We found this restaurant on the second day of our trip and ate here every day thereafter, it was so good! There are only two of us, but we eat a lot so we were able to sample quite a lot of the menu with our frequent visits. Not once did we have a bad meal, menu item or service... More

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.
