Great spot for brunch, lunch or just a nice pizza. The Blini's were such a pleasant treat, sweet but yet savory. Something lighter but quite satisfying was the lobster croquette (just one) with a beautiful slice of radish and some greens. Bread pudding concluded our lunch and it was also very nice. Warming it would have been a nice touch but it was excellent all the same. In all honesty, I had total food envy. The pizza's at the table next to ours looked extremely simple and inviting.
Don't be surprised if you are seated at a table for 4 and you are only 2, someone will be sharing. The restaurant has a a very nice vibe, filled with students and locals. Our wait was short and we were surprised how busy it was at 3:00. We will certainly go back when next in Montreal.

Got there just before 1:00PM on a Wednesday at end of November and thought we would never get in but it seems that the Café also accesses the space next door – Le Furco Bar – which is where we ended up sitting. That was good for us as the Parvis side was quite noisy. We only ordered one item each (mushroom pizza and Jerk chicken pizza) and were surprised at their size. My wife loved her mushroom pizza and the spicy chicken on mine was perfect but the crust a bit dry. When they say that the portions are small, they mean it. But the price is also small at $8. We should have realized that but if we had had another item for lunch we would not have been able to enjoy dessert – Pecan pie – which was great. One Cappuccino, three glasses of wine (great selection here but small size) and tip came to just over $70 for lunch.

We went to Parvis to try the coffee, but we ended up getting a three course meal and all of were above expectations. The pizza was incredible - such a perfect texture and combination of flavors. We had the seasonal special dessert, pumpkin bread pudding, and it was so so good. Then came the latte... By far the best I have had. So strong yet creamy.

The bartender was super friendly too. Gave us a shot on the house and a list of restaurant recommendations nearby.

Definitely worth it.

Unique pizzas and amazing desserts! Great wine selection too! It was hopping and crowded for lunch on a Wednesday but we were seated right away. Great atmosphere and interesting, delicious pizzas. The dessert selection isn’t large but the banana and chocolate pies were divine! Wi-Fi is strong as well! Highly recommend!
