Wandering through old Montreal and wanting a healthy lunch we stumbled into this cafe as it looked clean, bright, and airy. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that not only were the prices reasonable but it must be one of the best salad places in Montreal. I had a roast pork, avocado, and baby beet leaf salad with a curry dressing, while my wife had a beet and goat cheese salad and both were delicious. My portion at $12 was so huge that I couldn't finish it.
They also make breakfast crepes, desert crepes, and sandwiches with home-made pastries and the usual gourmet coffees.

We were looking for a quick bite to eat in Old Montreal in late afternoon. We were on our way to a concert, so we needed to eat early and weren't hungry for a lot. Cafe Veritas fit the bill perfectly. My grilled vegetable and goat cheese sandwich was terrific, and my family gave thumbs up to the roast beef sandwich, as well as the mozzarella fraiche and tomato sandwich. The cafe was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. An excellent choice for a casual meal!

Super good chocolatines (croissants) and great breakfast sandwiches and coffee. Stopped here for a bit to eat before leaving for home- wish we'd found it sooner. The locals were eating here before work so we took this as a good sign!

Our family is not fluent in French, so it was a relief when one of their staff noticed we were a bit lost and asked if we wanted a menu in English. Our lunches were all fresh and delicious, and the salads were absolutely huge!

Tasty sandwiches w/ interesting bean side salad. Seemed trendy. Staff helpful & bilingual, she recognized we were American & needed English menus.
