Locally owned, beautiful original decor, friendly staff and tasty food. Brunch menu is not the "same old, same old". Nice to go somewhere authentic and unique. Good coffee too. If you are from out of town stop in!

I had an informal business lunch and ordered BLT and Cesar Salad. Both came promptly and in their distinct preparation style, i.p. the BLT sandwich. Both very tasty along with a service that was prompt most of the time (unless there was a large line-up at the take-out counter).

First and formal, the customer service was honestly excellent. In addition, the interior of the restaurant is absolutely aesthetically... More

How do you improve on a classic BLT? Add avocado and put it on a ciabatta bun! I was so pleasantly surprised by this charming little spot! The décor is rustic and unpretentious (my friend's word), the staff is warm and friendly and the food is delicious. Oh, and did I mention that the prices are reasonable? You also have... More

Staying in Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have been renovated into homes, museums, and small businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge galleries and an ever-expanding network of restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the Atwater Market, where outdoor stalls sell fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, street vendors have menus of hot fish and wine, and the indoor market offers chocolate, breads, and coffee beans. Dominated by the gentle waters of the Lachine Canal, Le Sud-Ouest is still very much an outdoor town, with a number of pedestrian-only bridges traversing the waters, bike paths along the canal with views of the Leisure Boats, and massive green spaces like Angrignon Park to stop for a picnic, or to play a sport.
