I was very sad to see the coolest spot on st Laurent closed. They had excellent tapas and brunch. I was fond of their olives. Always a cool DJ super sad to report this.

My sister first introduced me to this bar back when I lived in Montreal. Seventeen years later, it's still one of my favourite bars around for a cozy pint. During the day on weekends, they make a tasty brunch. It can be a bit slow...More

I've been going to Laika for more than ten years but never review it, perhaps because it's so reliable I forget to make the point. The chic of a decade ago has definitely become more shabby, but not its detriment. In fact it seems to...More

This place is great! We came from NY & found this gem. The brunch was amazing (definitely try the grilled cheese with olive spread & Bloody Mary). Very low key & casual atmosphere & great service.

Not a big restaurant but the choice is fair and tasty. A perfect place for a quick lunch downtown right next to the tiny Montreal Jewish museum.
