I simply love this place. Meals are always excellents, portions are big and price is cheap. I usually go for breakfast because they serve those huge plates with a lot of fresh fruits and their benedictine are awesome. Last time I went for dinner and I had their Bavette. I simply have to say it was the best I ever... More

Really enjoyed our Omlettes for lunch - one vegetarian and the other was asparagus. Great server who made us feel right at home. A lovely warm sunny day so we sat outside on their terrace and watched the people going by on Rue Saint-Denis.

I've been going to L'Evidence for years and it has never disappointed. Their new location has much more room, and the food is tasty and prepared thoughtfully. They know how to serve a breakfast! Prices are reasonable, portions are good. Definitely one of Montreal's hidden breakfast gems.

If you love eggs benedict you are in for a treat. I visited the resto after reading a review. I was very impressed as the description was spot on. You can sit on the terrasse and people watch while eating breakfast. I did not see any queues. I ordered the le complete eggs benedict which comes with bottomless coffee and... More

We planned our trip to L'Evidence carefully, got off the Métro at Sherbrooke station, and used both paper and online maps to find 3619 Rue St.Denis with no success!! We were able to easily find Cafe Cherrier and Bistrot La Fabrique, but no sign of L'Evidence:( Ate at Cherrier and was good but not what we were expecting from L'Evidence.

We have had breakfast at L'Evidence twice now and both times were scrumptious. On our last visit I ordered omelet (I think with sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke), that was just to die for. The omelet was served with fried potatoes, fresh fruit and toast. We will be back to try out some of their other omelets as it was difficult... 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.
