That's because it's simply the best breakfast place to go in Old Montreal. Their almond croissants....hmmm....I want another. If you're there walk over. Wait in line it's worth it.

Funky spot for lunch or breakfast in old Montreal. Line-ups are normal but they move fast. Their ice tea is so yummy. Vegan sandwich delightful too.

The place is small and tables situated close to each other. We had the cajun chicken sandwiches which were delicious. Not too spicy at all. Simple, rustic and good food. Suggest going there mid afternoon, less of a wait.

We were lucky to get hungry in the afternoon when there was no line, but it was still pretty crowded. I ordered Le Cubain sandwich and it was awesome. Perfect bread, perfect amount of sauce and perfect taste!

You may have to wait in line, but the food is great. We've never had a harder time deciding what to eat, so we're going back tomorrow to try other meals. Unique salads and panini.

Ok breakfast. Just ok. Nothing special, very limited menu. Why the 30 min wait? Why the hype? Don't get it.

I would agree that about 15 minutes would get you there. The restaurant can be very crowded so be prepared to wait in line.

Yes, olive y gourmando is open for brunch. There aren't many tables. I ate at a bar facing the windows. Be prepared to wait for a seat on Sunday's. The food is worth the wait!

I would assume you are referring to Montreal City Hall which is in the old city....this restaurant is about a 15 minute leisurely walk west on Rue St. Paul Ouest. Enjoy. Andres
