We've been fans of Le Matinal for years, it specializes in breakfasts and makes some interesting (and delicious) dishes. But.......they should stop offering take out service if they can't get their act together (today's experience wasn't the first of its kind but it will be the last....) Called the order in and was told it would be ready in 10... More

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).
