The Line-ups: This place had an insanely long line by 11 am when we arrived. It was also quite confusing for people like us coming for the first time. Some would get the impression that you would be seated according to where you are in the line, however after waiting in line for ~30 minutes we realized that you actually... More

The food was amazing with a beautiful presentation. It is a great place for friends to get together. The music was good, not too loud. The atmosphere and decor were eclectic, Bohemian, and relaxed. The bathrooms were clean. Fantastic service in French and English. We came at 9:00, by the time we left there was a line up down the... More

I was lucky enough to not have to wait in line at around 11 am on a Friday. Its a busy place but service was good. Had a great poached egg on brioche with ham, came with fruit, really delicious and visually appealing. Just wish it was a little warmer. My friend had the grilled cheese and it was massive... More

The food is delicious but what is going on with their line concept!? They take no reservations and make people wait in lines for hours. In addition to this stupid concept to start with, they aim to fill their tables. So 4 people that just arrived can get a table before your party of three that has been waiting for... More

Hi Catherine, Thanks for your review. We are extremely busy on weekends, the reason why there is usually a line up. Unfortunately, we cannot take reservations on the weekends. We attempted to do this in the past, however the line up at the door that you experience becomes much worse, due to the fact that people rarely show up on... More

Reading the reviews I was ready for terrible service but we were very well taken care of. Perhaps it was because we were there very early and the place was just starting to get packed or management stepped up the game. We enjoyed the unique breakfast choices and tried the duck, squash, Porto benny and the ratatouille benny. Both came... More

I have been multiple times to Passé Composé, but the last two times that I've been there I have had a bad experience with the same waitress. She made a big deal because we went with babies. It was a Thursday the restaurant wasn't full and she didn't want us to take advantage of the extra space to be more... More

Hi Maria, Thanks for your review. At Passé Composé, we do our very best to accommodate any and all groups. We have a large clientele of families, and babies are more than welcome in our establishment. I think there was a misunderstanding between you and our waitress. Both of your babies were on the floor of our restaurant in their... More

Pros: Menu: all classics with a twist. Dishes are very nicely plated. Cons: Prices: everything is overpriced. Any dish with 1 egg is 15$, and 2 eggs is 18$. My friend has the plus que parfait breakfast which had bacon, gnocchi and was priced at 20$ Cappucino 4$ Flavor: fair but really not worth the price. Atmosphere: as we went... More

Came here for brunch and the wait was out the door. After 40 minutes we were seated. It was well worth the wait though- best brunch we have had in a long time. The attention to detail was awesome. You must try the French toast!!!

Great service, best brunch in Montreal. I had the duck poached eggs and French toast and my friend had the Bagel. Huge portions and everything was to die for. Will be back again and again without a doubt!

Staying in The Village (Gay Village)

Neighbourhood Profile
The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party spot, The Village comes alive at night, when clubs, bars, and dance halls open their doors and the revelry is high, epitomised by the fanciful trimmings of the apropos Oscar Wilde building. From May to September, the area closes to automotive traffic, allowing restaurant terraces to pour onto the streets, creating a dynamic sense of community. Les Boules Roses, thousands of pink baubles, are hung to welcome in the festivals and celebrations, including Montréal en Arts, Divers-Cité, and the Pride Parade.
