Went here for breakfast while visiting MTL on a local friend's recommendation. It's kind of got a New Orleans vibe and there was a live piano player playing some ambient music. Good coffee and one friend ordered a Caesar to get his Saturday started right!!i ordered the smoked salmon Benedict and it was excellent as were the reviews of the... More

Best breakfast I have had in a long time. The coffee was absolutely amazing. We all ordered something different, and all were very happy with our choices. Great service and atmosphere to top it off!! Will definitely be back.

Went on Friday evening and enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere with very good / tasty European styled food and (in our case) some tunes from local artists "GYpsy Vadruoille". Clean, good service with no rushing. With a reservation was able to get a great spot for four near the group, and the wine list had a small but good choice along... More

This is a very cozy place in the plateau area of Montreal. They serve the hot drinks in lovely bowls, a nice way of heating up the hands after a rainy day in town. The place is nicely decorated and has a very casual feel! I didn't try the food, but the cakes looked tasty.

Our group of 6 had a great brunch experience here on a recent Saturday morning. Service a bit slow at first, but it's the kind of atmosphere that instantly puts you at ease. The food was fantastic -- we each ordered something different, and everything was great. As we were finishing up, a piano player started playing some jazz, which... More

We were lucky to find this cafe just around the corner from where we were staying, just off Papineau - it just happened to be the closest cafe. Great atmosphere, friendly service, and a very good breakfast: the oatmeal, the yogurt, the coffee - all very tasty. A little off the beaten path but worth the walk or drive. And... More

The Website looked fancy, but this cozy neighborhood bistro is actually pretty casual. It was raining when we arrived for dinner, so we sat at a back table overlooking a lovely garden. The food was excellent: croque monsieur, several kinds of burgers, and draught beers. The only problem, really, was that the portions were so large that we left over... More

We had a wonderful brunch Sunday morning. The waitstaff was very attentive, the food delicious and the atmosphere very warm and pleasant. It was very kid friendly and the staff were open to speaking English so all could understand at the table. We would highly recommend this restaurant again and plan to revisit prior to our departing the city.

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.
