Went today expecting to have breakfast but we were too late but we stayed anyway and had a wonderful lunch. Had the california salad wish I had taken a picture, was definitely not disappointed! The best I've had in a long time. The service was great and price reasonable!

We had Sunday breakfast, ate the Banana Crepes and the Eggs Benedict, one of the best breakfasts in the area. Very fast, positive service and real maple syrup.

I went with two people that love breakfast food, which I don't, so I wanted to find something savoury and vegetarian that wasn't eggs and potatoes. There wasn't much. I got two crepes with cheese and asparagus. The crepes had a bit of sweetness to them so I didn't love them, and they were dry. But they were fresh and... More

New menu is great. Four of us had meals and all were cooked perfectly. Mussels are amazing. Bison medallion was succulent. Everything is made in house.

On a Friday evening, the restaurant was almost empty. The service was outstanding: a lady who obviously loves her job and does everything to make her customers happy. That was the highlight. The mushroom soup was ok, not bad but nothing to rave about. The salmon was fine. More cooked than what I asked for but still moist. Ordinary vegetables.... More

You can eat salads, Bistro food, Pizza, Pasta French cuisine, and 14 different ways of mussels. They also have a nice terrace in the back. Café Cognac anytime, to anyone for... More

I went to Café Cognac just recently and was very impressed with the service and the food. We had drinks on the terrace and then moved inside for our meals which were awesome. I had a steak dish complete with potatoes and vegetables cooked to perfection and very tasty. My friend had the pizza with chorizo sausage and loved it.... More

A friend and I decided to go for lunch at Café Cognac. I haven't been there in years. The new owner has changed the décor inside as well as the terrace outside, a good impovement. The staff is still very friendly, helpful and effective. My friend had "Les moules du Café" (mussels with cream, leaks and garlic) that she found... More
