This is a long, narrow space. We found it comfortable. The waiter was attentive without being obtrusive. I ordered the full traditional breakfast. It came in a hot skillet, bacon, ham and a very good veal with fresh spices sausage, beans, eggs, potatoes. A full meal with a small side of fresh fruit and toast. My wife had oatmeal and fruit. She enjoyed it and said it was delicious. If you like relaxed atmosphere and well prepared food, you will likely enjoy this cafe/restaurant.

Recommended by the concierge at the W Montreal, who said it was a fantastic breakfast place, and he wasn't exaggerating.
Try the toasted coconut banana bread, which came with yogurt and blueberres and fresh fruit, or the yogurt and granola parfait.

Went here for brunch on a Sunday around 11:30-noon. Small line when we got in, but we were seated within 15 minutes. When we left, the line was out the door.

The food was delicious! Eggs were cooked perfectly, the crepes were well-made. Everything was very tasty. And the portions were very substantial.

The service was top-notch. Our waiter was very friendly and extremely helpful. I'd highly recommend this place for brunch!

It is like an upscale cafeteria, the tables are close and it is a bit noisy. That is where the comparison ends. The menu is aimed towards a lunch crowd and the wait for your food is manageable. On two separate occasions, when it was chilly out, I have had their daily homemade soups. The first time, I had a carrot, ginger and maple soup, which was wonderful. ( I found a recipe for it and made it for my family- It was that good) Yesterday, I once again felt like soup and headed to Le Cartet. You are always presented a basket of bread and butter. The soup of the day was cream of mushroom, it was good! Creamy but not heavy, full of earthy flavours and perfect with a slice of baguette dipped in it. The temperature was smack on, hot enough to take the chill of the day off but still a comfortable temperature to eat. The portion was perfect, a nice size bowl and with the addition of bread, it was a satisfying lunch.The boutique part of Le Cartet has a nice assortment of teas, a huge variety of gourmet chocolate bars and a take out selection of sandwiches, soups and loafs. There are lots of goodies and it is worth a look. A solid 3 mmm's out of 5.

Great simple food at a reasonable price in a relaxed atmosphere. Brunch seems to be very popular at Le cartet, particularly on a Sunday, we couldnt get in that day, the queue of people stretched out across the pavement, and it seemed to be mainly local families
