Arrived and decided to sit on the terrace. The restaurant was not particularly busy. After almost 30 minutes, the waiter discovered our order had not been processed - after our inquiry (none from the wait staff). in fact the order was lost. Our order, 2...More

My longtime girlfriend and I had our second trip to Montreal during the first week in June to celebrate our anniversary. Just like our first visit (back in the Fall), we were very excited by the variety and amount of places to get great food...More

We had not visited for along time, so it was time for a return visit. Good coffee, and we all enjoyed our breakfast. We really should come here more often. Unlike other restaurants in this part of the city, Spanel continues to off good unpretentious...More

It is a while since went to Spanel. The menu is the same but there are more staff now so the service is significantly faster but without losing on quality. The coffee is improved too so we will return more often!

We went for brunch, if i have a piece of advice, reserve after 12:30...between 11:30 and 12:30 it is super popular and crowded! But still, the service remains superior, efficient and so nice. Hard to pick the best crepe...all sound so tasty! I picked Quartier...More

I went for a crêpe, which is their specialty. None on the menu piqued my interest that evening, but the server happily took my order when I chose ingredients and confirmed there'd be no problem creating it for me. Warm and cozy atmosphere. A bit...More

Always love coming here and my husband and I enjoy the crepes very much. This past time the place only had three other tables midweek around 11:45 and it took a long time to be served. There were three servers so not sure what the...More
