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

As usual, the food was good but the service was slow. We were seated quickly, and our order was taken. The coffees took ages to arrive and then the food arrived even later. We love the food here but the slow service puts us off...More

We were a large group of about 20 people, service was fast, food very fresh, reasonably priced. Coffee and tea are included with most meals.

The buckwheat crepes are gluten free and delicious, with a lot of options. We all took something different and were pleased! The portions are large enough for lunch.

Always on the look out for a brunch/lunch option - reasonably priced & NOT pretentious. Great little place. The chef is the owner from France. Hopefully, he is creating a sort of renaissance of the previously ubiquitous crepe. When I first came to Montreal (1969!)...More

Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialised Montreal, the
factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have
been renovated into homes, museums, and small
businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its
Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge
galleries and an ever-expanding network of
restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the
mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the
