This great little breakfast place has something for everyone. Lots of choices from bacon n'eggs, to delicious crepes, filling omelets, French toast, bagels and smoked salmon - the list goes on. Weekend mornings are busy, but you never have to wait too long to be seated or for your food. Great place for families or friends. Friendly service.

I'm not much for franchise businesses. Their breakfast/brunch menu is similar to that of Cora's or other chains. Reasonable prices and friendly staff. You can't go wrong with Le Matinal

Really good breakfast, large choice. You can enjoy what you feel like. I sure will be going back when I go back to Ottawa. The restaurant was full. Service was Ok. It seemed that the fact we were not in a hurry to order has annoyed the waitress. Besides that it was really nice!

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
