The old hen can really make a great breakfast!!

There are so many great breakfast places in Montreal that you must ask yourself.."why this place?"... Well...the line up at the door must be a good sign..the resto must serve high volumes of food so you know it must be fresh,hot and the service has to be fast...to turn over tables at such a fast... read more

My husband and I met my dad for breakfast last week - this is one of our go-to places in Montreal when we visit. The breakfasts are fresh and tasty and the service is very good! We especially like the unlimited delicious coffee!

A restaurant for the locals, so it's a good option to get away from the tourist spots. Regular food (eggs are the point), awful service (at least on my own experience).

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

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

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.
