You usually can't repeat a food epiphany, but the chocolate brioche here was so amazing, I went back 3 times during a 4-day trip. Supercute, superbusy, and incredibly instagrammable.

I had the Cuban sandwich it was very delicious. Try their chocolate banana croissant also. There’s a line always but it’s worth to wait. Very European atmosphere.

There is a wait for this restaurant for a reason! Great menu selection and vibe. The paninis are incredible. Very high quality ingredients and flavor. Instead of getting stuck in a tourist trap, this restaurant is the way better choice.

Super delicious breakfast panini! I was full all day. Chocolate croissant? Buttery, flakey and just enough chocolate. Crowded for Sunday brunch, but the wait ended up being shorter than expected and was well worth it. Cozy atmosphere. All round a fantastic choice!

Truly excellent and the staff are incredible. I had the Cajun chicken which was yummy, cooked well and decently priced. The homemade guacamole was full of flavour. Will definitely return in the future.

We went to find this place after my friend living in Montreal recommended it. So glad we made it before they closed (as they close at 5 pm and do not reopen for dinner) It was about a 30 minute wait and we just went...More

I would agree that about 15 minutes would get you there. The restaurant can be very crowded so be prepared to wait in line.

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
