A very eclectic neighborhood restaurant, often lined up for breakfast and lunch on the weekend. Great soup, hand made sandwiches (can be shared) fun interior with a terrace for those warm days. Check out the website for photos and menu.

A breath of fresh air on the Plateau, especially if you are vegetarian. This charming terrace is the perfect spot to stop on your way to or from the Mountain. An institution that survived from the 80s, le Santropol takes sandwiches to the next level....More

Ordered a cafe au lait and homemade blueberry scone with fresh blueberries inside and it was perfect. Service was great too. Would recommend for a small breakfast. Really good coffee.
