You have to have brunch here at least once. Come 15 minutes before it opens so you get a seat. The place is very small but cozy. There are always 3 generous and delicious options. One is always vegetarian. There are plenty of goodies to take home, too. Ingredients are good quality, mostly local. Dishes are unique combinations. Portions are... More

This tiny gem, not far from the entrance of Gatineau Park and just 5 minutes from Ottawa, is a great place to enjoy a tasty brunch. It's a bakery that serves a select few dishes for weekend brunch - the Huevos Rancheros is a yummy treat (my fav) but if you're up for something sweet, the Dutch Baby maybe just... More

My wife and I dropped into Edgar in Gatineau for brunch today for the first time. This is a quaint little restaurant located on a quiet side street off of Taché blvd in Gatineau. Brunch is served only on weekends from 10am-2pm. There are always three menu choices and all are between 13-15$. We had the Huevos rancheros Mexican dish... More

Saw the restaurant on You Gotta Eat Here, so tried it out last year. Arrived super early, good thing too. Excited, lined up, and managed to get only table for 3 for breakfast. Lovely Chai and lattes to start. Service pleasant, everyone seems capable and efficient. The menu has three items. Two remain the same and one changes. We ordered... More

I"ve had great brunches, but this one beats them all. Even though this place is tiny and main business is take out, and despite the fact that we were six, we got seated immediately on the terrasse. On weekends, they have 3 choices of main courses for brunch and a variety of pastries. That week end they offered a to... More

We found that place while watching "you gotta eat here" on the food network and decided to give it a go next time we were in Ottawa. We went on a Saturday for the brunch. The food is just simply delicious, service is good and there is plenty of parking space around the building since it is a little bit... More

Took my friend for brunch yesterday.What a delightful experience. It is all about the food. We had the strata which was rich, filling and beautifully presented. Excellent coffee and sweets to end. Will be going back for the Huevos Rancheros plate...

I live nearby and did not know the place. When you travel the world you tend to ignore your own yard. Amazing place, you eat almost in the kitchen, observing the chef. Delicious brunch on Sunday morning. I was told that there were only 13 seats and you cannot book. So we waited by the door at 9:15 for a... More

What do you write about a restaurant? This place serves really good food, the staff is very friendly, the prices are ok and it's right located at one of monacos yachtharbours. Again food, staff, location and price - two thumbs up!
