Delicious Latte. Fresh squeezed orange juice. Poached egg sandwich. The Ricotta with honey on toast looked amazing. Lively environment. Long waits. All good.

Had a wonderful lunch here. We arrived early at about 11:30 and when we left about an hour plus later, there was a line. I recommend arriving a bit before normal meal hours, because this is one popular place, for good reason. The grilled cheese...More

I wish I could take this wonderful brunch restaurant home with me. The line on Sunday was well worth the wait for perfect coffee and croissant. But the piece de resistance was the house made salty ricotta which was honey flavored with the slightest hint...More

Olive & Gourmando is a local favorite. It was recommended by the concierge at my hotel and I'm very glad I visited. There was a long wait for a table but you are able to order food to go. The wait ended up being less...More

festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a
celebrated part of the city that explodes into
fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Are you open for Sunday brunch? If answer is no, can anyone give lunch/brunch suggestions for a location near the Cirque du Soleil in the Old Port? In 2016 the Cirque was at 145 de la Commune Est. Do not know their location for 2017.

Yes, olive y gourmando is open for brunch. There aren't many tables. I ate at a bar facing the windows. Be prepared to wait for a seat on Sunday's. The food is worth the wait!

I would assume you are referring to Montreal City Hall which is in the old city....this restaurant is about a 15 minute leisurely walk west on Rue St. Paul Ouest. Enjoy. Andres
We will be arriving next week via train to stay with you for the weekend for my daughters birthday. How far from the train station are you, approximately how much is a cab ride from the station to the hotel?

As you have read, it is not a hotel. It is a lovely restaurant in Old Montreal. So it is accessible from various hotels in Old Montreal or anywhere by taxi.
