I visited in June, and had a crepe that was supposed to be with summer fruits. I was expecting some berries maybe, or cherries or peaches, but it came with sliced apples and grapes.Not much flavor.

We found this place by sheer chance whilst trying to find a good place for some lunch. It wasn't too full, and we were seated immediately. I ordered their poutine, which came with a green pepper sauce. It was my first-ever poutine, so I didn't really know what to expect; but it was great! It was unconventional because it wasn't...

This restaurant was okay to step into off the street on a chilly day, but we wouldn't make a special trip to attend. The ambiance was loud & chaotic. The food was okay, the portions were generous & the sides were good. I wouldn't go there again, but it was okay for a quick lunch.

The service was excellent and the breakfast was delicious and well priced. And the location on Peel Street is about a block away from all the shopping on St Catherine Street.

What I like is the coffee, the fries, the house burger, the omelettes. I can't think of anything I have not liked yet after 3 meals there.

The menu is rather basic, nothing overly exciting, and the atmosphere is that of a standard cafe. Its an ok place to grab some lunch when you are just needing something to eat.

The menu is incredibly uninspired which is too bad because the inside is quite nice. It seems as though the menu is really just an afterthought. The service was ok, but considering we were the only table in the place it was really quite poor. The ladies I was with had the goat cheese sandwich, it was really a poor... More

We stopped in after touring the underground city for lunch and were quite satisfied. The interior is nice with many window seats. We sat by an open window in the back. There was only one waitress but she was fantastic! She was very personable and made great suggestions despite her workload. Service was a bit slow but not any slower... More

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
