My husband and son had the Vasco de Gama's omelette and they really enjoyed them. They are served with fruit and bread. Also the cafe latte is very good. It is a nice place to have breakfast if you are in downtown.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
