I ate here with my family as it was on our way home. The service was friendly and efficent. The tables were clean and well presented.

This place is really common. Pizza isnt good at all. Burgers are ok. If you want a traditionnal egg and bacon breakfast dor 5$, thisnis good but for a dollar more, La bineriebis a way better choice just 50 feet after. If its gettong late, then fameux becomes an option

Great prices, good location, and extensive menu. We enjoyed the smoked meat sandwich and poutine - wonderful for some out-of-towners! Our children really liked the kids' menu. The staff were very friendly and welcomed us to Montreal. Overall, a fun first-night restaurant experience after a long road trip.
