“Surprisingly good food”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

You'd think this is a standard sandwich/paninis place, but the food is amazingly good. My Tuna Tartar was excellent. Worthy of higher class restaurants.

Laika is a great place on the Plateau to hang out for a while. Their drinks and coffee are wonderful and there is just a very cool vibe to the whole place with great music and good people watching all around. Next time we go back , we will have to try the brunch which everyone says is really good. We (my wife and I) were on vacation from Atlanta (we visit Montreal fairly often) and were staying nearby, so we found it to be a great place to go relax for a while and really feel immersed in the local Montreal scene. Check it out, you will be glad you did!

“Perfect for brunch”
Reviewed April 26, 2010

LAika offers a weekend brunch that is one of my favorite in Montreal. I usually take the «kit du trucker» which ia basically an egg on top of some fried patatoes with mushrooms and cheddar...It is simply to die for. They have specials that change every day and ALWAYS different.The coffee is alright. Oh and the pancakes are amazing.
And at night there's usually a DJ and the place becomes a great louge without all that fancy-crap.
