“Really slow and bad service, average food”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

We decided to go to Deli 500 since we were in the area early in the morning. We arrived at around 10:15am and wanted to grab a quick breakfast. There was a total of 6 tables being occupied including ours. There was 1 waitress and she was SLOW. I can understand that she was alone, but 3 out of 6 of the tables were already eating, so I didn't understand why it took so long. We didn't get our menus until about 10 minutes after we were seated. We were 7 adults plus 1 child, but we were only given 2 menus. After another 10 minutes, she finally came by and took our orders. A couple of minutes later, she left a hot pot of coffee on our table. We figured that she wasn't coming back, so we poured our own coffee. I asked for a tea and waited another 5 minutes before getting it. We got our food not too long after that and it was just okie. It's really nothing to brag about. Our eggs were very runny and lacked seasoning. I had to eat super fast since we paid for parking and the meter was up. Overall, I can understand if the restaurant was very busy that the service would be slow, but it was just the 6 tables the whole time. Also, management should have more than 1 waitress on the floor if she can't handle that many customers at once. Therefore, it's not surprising to say that we're not coming back.

“Great value”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

We were staying almost next door at the Delta Montreal and found this to be a great breakfast alternative to the hotel. It's open 6 am-7 pm Monday to Friday, 7 am-2 pm on Saturdays and closed Sundays. Breakfast options are extrememly varied and start at just $3.95.

We had your basic bacon and egg breakfast with a very attentive server. I had ordered my bacon well done and when it came it wasn't done enough for me. Before I had the chance to mention it to him, he came back to check that the bacon was sufficiently cooked and brought it back nice and crispy when I indicated that I needed cooked more.

Coffee was included in the price of the meal and we added fresh orange juice as well. Two adults ate a full breakfast for $20. They also have a varied menu for lunch and early dinners.

Went to eat here for a business lunch meeting. We ate from their daily menu which served a delicious roast leg of lamb for under 12$ that included soup,coffee and dessert. It was great! Service was really good. Would return for sure!
