A great, filling breakfast. Good service. My only complaint is that the coffee wasn't great. (One hundred characters.)

Great spot for lunch in old Montreal. Fast and friendly service and good food served in large portions at reasonable prices. Very casual, place your order and it is delivered to your table a short time later. In and out in no time if that is important to you.

We had been sightseeing all morning and were quite hungry but could not find anywhere with veggie options. Luckily, we came across this cafe which had a lot of healthy options. We both had a mini omelette in a roll with coffee. The food was good and reasonably priced and just what we were looking for at the time.

We took lunch to go as we also went to the island in front of Montreal. We both took a different sandwich which was big and fully covered. Service was good, quick and prices were ok. They had a lot of choices of other food as well!

This little place had 6-8 choices for big salads, which is wonderful if you are eating heavy or rich food the rest of the day. We went back a second time. We had and liked the avacado with walnuts and cranberries salad. We also liked the goat cheese one with pasta. They had sandwiches and desserts also but we did... More

We ate here on our last morning before we left for the airport. I thought it was just okay. There are much better places to eat for the same price in the area.

My husband wanted some crepes for breakfast, so we stopped here. He wouldn't stop raving about them! And the prices are reasonable.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
