I adore the contrast here between the grungy ambience and the high-concept delicious food. Simply delightful. Our various breakfast choices were all terrific. As we were the only early-morning clients, the waitress turned down the loud music as requested, which we appreciated. Two critical comments: the prices seemed steep. And my coffee cup had old sugar crusts on its side,... More

Another visit to a favourite brunch spot. The poutine déjeuner was huge and the coffee excellent. The place is a bit grungy but that's all part of the character of the place. Great service too!

Not a big restaurant but the choice is fair and tasty. A perfect place for a quick lunch downtown right next to the tiny Montreal Jewish museum.

We were walking down the boulevard just enjoying our last day in Canada after 3 weeks of touring Quebec and Ontario as we happened to pass Laïka... We just couldn't resist and sat down for a local beer. I could have spend there the rest of the afternoon. Cool, easy going, friendly people (both guests and personnel). When I visit... More

The decor was not to my taste at all and if you are of like mind do not let this put you off because this place has the best goats cheese and apple salad I've ever had!!

Brunch is by 3 pm and if you are around having a walk in this neighborhood you can't miss this place. My friend took me here and at the beginning I was like "meh".... After few seconds I started to enjoy the vibe of the place and the crowd of young artsy people. I live in New York and the... More

This is a place to hang out with friends and listen to DJs. The food is good and they have a good selection of beer and wine.

I was reluctant to write this critique because I don't want one of my favorite places to become a trourist attraction but, I decided to take my chances. This is one of the best week-end brunch in Montreal (but also a great place for lunch), and one of the best coffee place. They make things you don't have the patience... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
