Good Breakfast Place

I have had breakfast a few times at Le Matinal. Everytime, it was really good and cheap (if you go before 9 a.m., they have an early bird special).

This restaurant, especially during peak periods is a bit tight... but... even though I say this, their food is great, service is great and they are a good dollar value. Probably about mid point pricing... Get there early, they are popular, for good reason and the line, sometimes can lead down a small portion of the sidewalk ~ but for... More

If this restaurant was bigger, or just even less crowded, I would have rated it higher. Food was pretty good, but we felt like we were too close to the other patrons. The staff is nice enough, but we went in there, we spoke English to the waitress, and every time she came back, she spoke to us in French.... More

Early Saturday morning two of us went to try this place. We have been before years ago, assessing it as average. The tables are too close together. The server was efficient but not particularly friendly. The food came fast and was hot. The biggest issue was the regulars: four loudmouths who seemed to think they were the only people in... More

Met with friends at Le Matinal in Aylmer and it was a great breakfast, complete with excellent fresh fruit. Our server, a nice French lady, was phenomenal -- very attentive without being intrusive. The food was great and all elements of everyone's breakfast were well executed. Pleasant enough decor, quite busy, but we didn't have to wait. I would definitely... More

Been coming to eat here off and on over the last few years and the food's always been pretty good and the decor (while hasn't changed much other than a new coat of paint) makes you feel at home. The staff are friendly and pleasant. Had my usual 2 eggs, sausage breakfast special and everything was fairly decent. Potatoes could... More

I have been going to the matinal since I was a little girl but it certainly is a different atmosphere now than it was back then. This owner has been around for quite a while, I've never heard good things about her from staff or customers. I know many regular customers have not returned because she is rude to both... More

Was here for breakfast twice in the last couple of months and was disapointed by the appearance of the restaurant in the sense that the decor hasn't changed for many years even though the owners have changed. And speaking of the owners... boy are they bossy!! Instead of pulling their employees aside to inform them how she would like them... More
