Following a work trip we were looking for a nice breakfast outside of our hotel. Nothing much came up in our searches, so we just wandered down to the Old Town and saw that this place was surprisingly busy for 9am on a Sunday - a good sign!
In we went and we weren't disappointed. The super assiette was delicious, and portion size enormous - really set us all up for the day. I agree the service was a little grumpy, but we just took that as just an act so as to be fully representative of a typical "French" market LOL (and certainly not usual for Montreal where everyone is so friendly!). Indeed, on paying we asked a few questions about what to do in the local area and the staff were very helpful.
Recommended if you want a big early morning feed (at $12.75 for most large dishes I don't this is too expensive.....you won't need to eat again for the whole day!)
