We went there for a Sunday brunch. I ordered crêpes with this amazingly delicious dark 70% chocolate melted on top. The chocolate had this heavenly taste.

So great, we ate there three times...two breakfasts and one dinner. The restaurant decor is eclectic with a great glass wall with shifting colors behind a picture of birch trees as well as other great textures/art. We were there during Winter Carnival and it was crowded, but the breakfasts were great. Large helpings and fresh fruit, great crepes! Dinner (pasta)... More

Really awesome environment! Great light effects, stone and wood work, and aquariums! We ate breakfast, dinner, and later drinks and desserts there. The breakfast was a huge platter filled with fruit and generous serving of eggs. The dinner was great as was the service. The bar was nice with great mojitos and delicious cream brûlée!

Bottom line, I shouldn't have broke my rule. Service was slow, food was over cooked. My Cesar Salad was sloppy and tasted like it was made and dressed that morning. Their ribs were smothered with what tasted like bottled sauce, I could go on but why bother. Probably a great place for late night drinks with your friends, but dinner... More

This place is amazing. It is a little pricey but the food is amazing. Sat at the bar and the bartender was wonderful. Recommend one of the best wines I have ever had.

I had breakfast here on the way from the Château Laurier to a meeting farther up the Grande-Allée. I ordered eggs and sausage (expecting two eggs) but was given the equivalent "business breakfast" with a single egg and one sausage -- no harm done, as the extra calories were not really needed. The food was average, as was the coffee,... More

We always stop at Cosmos for lunch (we often have missed breakfast so we are starving!). Everyone likes the food which is upscale pub grub with some twists which seems to elevate the menu and offerings. I found it expensive for what it was this time- not sure lunch should be twenty dollars per person without any drinks of any... More

The Cosmos Café was visually attractive and had a fun atmosphere. The bathroom was something extraordinary. The food however while presented well was very average and nothing to write home about.

We were looking for a great all-day breakfast and found reviews recommending this gem. Fast and efficient service, terrific and tasty breakfast. We will stop by again, when we are next in town. I had an excellent eggs benedict with prosciutto, roasted potatoes and fruit, while my gorgeous dining partner went for chocolate and banana crepes. Both were yummy, as... More
