Met up with a friend for lunch here. We got there at around 13:00 and it was packed with officer workers having lunch. By 13:45, the place was almost empty. So my advice is to get there a wee bit later to avoid the crowd. The food was ok, nothing spectacular. The sandwiches were served with a salad. They looked... More

We went here for brunch around 11:30 on a Sunday just 30 minutes before the St. Patrick's Day parade. The place was packed but we were seated quickly and our server was fantastic. He had to juggle a lot of table and a lot of what appeared to be difficult customers, but he never forgot about us either. We tried... More

The food was great and the service was spectacular. I came here wanting to try the universal breakfast, but reading the description, I think it was too much food so I settled for some good o'l eggs Benedict. The server was really nice, she kept coming back to check if I needed anything or to refill my coffee. When my... More

We found this restaurant by chance early Sunday morning on St. Catherine O. They serve a wide variety of breakfast entrees all come with fresh fruit. The crepes were delicious, the eggs Florentine were loaded with fresh spinach and the French toast was served with real maple syrup and at no extra charge! The staff are friendly and attentive, your... More

I was at Déjeuner Universel just this morning. I love how nice the staff was. As my boyfriend and I were already seated, thinking it was just the two of us, we noticed one of his friends arrived and asked the waitress if we could instead have a table for four. The two waitresses pleasantly accommodated us. The plate called... More

Great food, a large variety of menu options all done well. Prices are great. Food is great. Ambiance is casual yet hip and modern. We ate here twice during our Montreal visit. The first time was our 'we just arrived in town after a long travel day and we're starving meal', and the next was five days later after getting... More

My boyfriend raved about this place for years and years and first took me here a few years ago and now we go here every time we are in Montreal. I am a big Eggs Benedict snob so when the boyfriend said I had to try the Universel Benedict, which of far from a classic so I was hesitant but... More

A great breakfast spot. Big portions, good for sharing if you are a small eater. Healthy options available as well as the classic heart clogging one :)

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
