I love eating here, the atmosphere is unique and the food is mouth watering. I recently noticed there new menu and was pleasantly surprised. They have Gulten free choices. My favorite dish of french toast with caramel and strawberries was amazing. I love the mini caserole dish to keep my sause... read more

This is not a cheap place, but it's really good. Everything was great, the food, the service, the place, everything good, but you can easily spend CAD50 at a breakfast for two.

Styled with good taste and serving huge selection of breakfast dishes, been there twice and got introduced to the amazing local Oka cheese. service is efficient and relatively quick, the one thing i would change is adding english menus, it is certainly missed.

Best breakfast in Montreal, just fabulous. Get there early (before 9am) on weekends. Blueberry pancakes full of berries, whole-grain toast if you want, real maple syrup, good coffees and teas. Lots of little extras, and the staff is very pleasant and invested in providing good service.

Went for breakfast on a weekday, so there was no line up and we go seated fairly quickly although we had to wait at the hostess stand for quite a few minutes before beng seated. The place was packed nonetheless for 9am. Breakfast was good, but when they start charging you extras for "real" maple syrup, I mean common. We... More

My husband, my father and I has just come back from the airport. We were looking for a nice place to have lunch. It was about 2:30 PM, way... More

The food was fresh, the line was long and it was worth the wait. We had the, Mykonos omelette, the Danemark and the Montreal. it came with fresh fruit, home fried potatoes, whole... More

The decor is modern and quaint (if that makes any sense!). The restrooms are well decorated with chicken sounds in the background - nice touch. Food was quite good and not expensive. The espressos were good. Service was pleasant and efficient.

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

Neighborhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
