The ouefs coquette was a taste explosion and enough to keep us trucking for a day of exploring. Lovely spot. Great ambiance. Tasty pastries.

The room looks a little earthy and inviting. The displays are all excellent but the promise of those is not fulfilled by the food or the coffee. I sent the cinnamon roll back it was so bad, worse than a chain. The food seems like...More

This place has been here for a while, and while it might be resting on its laurels a little bit by this point, it still serves up some tasty food. We were there for breakfast and couldn't really decide on which pastries to buy, though...More

Bustling at 2:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Only waited few minutes for communal seating at counter. Everything fresh and interesting. Thought a bit much feta on the Mediterranean salad but it was good. Service good, lots of choices.

We loved this cafe so much that on a three day trip we went in place twice! Once for lunch. And once for a baked good with tea to warm up! The atmosphere is bustling and busy. Very charming spot in Old Montreal settings. Both...More

We were eecommended this place by 2 different sources and we enjoyed it a lot. You cannot book, so be a little patient to get your table, as it is well worth it. Fresh food, with a nice selection of simple tasty dishes, including sandwiches...More

I would agree that about 15 minutes would get you there. The restaurant can be very crowded so be prepared to wait in line.

Yes, olive y gourmando is open for brunch. There aren't many tables. I ate at a bar facing the windows. Be prepared to wait for a seat on Sunday's. The food is worth the wait!
