“This is breakfast heaven! We went five days in a row as we stayed at the best Western and tried all different things. Every combo was delicious, perfectly cooked and with very generous portions. Always with that batch of fresh fruits which made the plates even better. Staff is very friendly, attentive and welcoming. Even if it’s full, coffee is refilled and they make sure, you’re satisfied with your food. Well done!”

“There's going to be a wait so just be ready for that. We randomly pulled up here after walking around and I MUST say food was fire. The breakfast potatoes were some of the best we've ever hard. BELT sandwich was also really good paired with french toast and waffles. Our server was grinding like he owned the place which could've been true, but service was exceptional. Enjoy”

“Went to this place during my vacation in Montreal. There are plenty of free parking on the street during the holidays. The area is quiet and peaceful. Many other restaurants in the area too.Le Vieux Velo does serve a good coffee in my opinion. The coffee bean they use was full of flavor.The simple breakfast was tasty. The egg is fluffy and the bread is great ?.”

“On our way through Montreal, we discovered this little gem. My family and I were seated, service was amazing, food was delicious and hot. It felt like like a family business in that, all staff acknowledged us, and went out of their way to make us comfortable despite our less than average French speaking capabilities. I have a large family and they more than accommodated us and made our experience very special. Nice way to end the summer. Definitely recommend this place”

“I remember the first time I sat down at the counter, and was greeted by Nikos. Being super hungover at the time, I ordered two eggs, salami, bacon and taters. Best breakfast, that I've had ever. Sad to hear about Niko passing, I had many a great conversation and he's always give me an extra egg. RIP brother.”

The service was slow, but to not fault of the staff. It was very busy and they were understaffed. Delicious brunch!”

“This restaurant was a nice surprise for me. It welcomes you in a warm ambiance, the staff is always smiling and the menu is extensive. Food here has a specific twist, all the ingredients go so well together an there are some interesting flavors added to the classical dishes.I had the poutine à la maghrébine, a delicious combination of potatoes, eggs and a sauce with oriental spices. Every corner of my mouth was enjoying this platter.There were no seats when I went there but I gave my number and they called me as soon as they had space ( after approximative 30 min)The only thing missing was some options with salmon. I feel that this would be very well received by the guests.”

“Food: 9/10 - Portions: 10+/10 - Staff: 10/10 - Place 9/10Details: Mexican casserole and Fried chicken with waffle are a great choice. Their mashed potatoes are excellent as well. I would prefer those over the wedges. Portions are big and that's from a big eater. Food is excellent. Staff are extremely attentive and the place is very nice. This is one of the spots that became on my weekly schedule! And their regular latte is good too. My only advice is to add more butter when cooking the scrambled eggs as they lack a bit of flavour. But all in all, great.”

“This was my first time here and a great choice to go with my family. While there is a little bit of a lineup in the morning it moves pretty quickly and took us around 20 minutes to get in with about 10 people ahead of us in line for reference. Getting seated our server was polite responsive and very helpful from the get-go. They were great to top off our coffees clean our area and help clarify anything on the menu we needed. The food arrived and it was incredible. Between the quality and value of the food with the amazing service I would certainly go here again.”

“It is quite a nice brunch restaurant in downtown in terms of pricing and atmosphere. Service is slow at peak hours. I recommend traditional egg benedict. Kid menu has lot of sugar choice, needs upgrading. Washroom is small and not cleanKid-friendliness: The table setting is quite dense, high chair is blocking the way. I feel nervous whenever the dish is passing by. Plus, washroom is up in stair, no changing table, I remember.”

“This place has it's pros & cons. Some things that should be well done at a good brunch spot are not quite up to par, but some parts are unexpectedly good. On the flop side for me, were the eggs. I ordered poached & the eggs came in two different consistencies. One was not poached at all. The meats were all pretty well cooked. The potatoes were alright. The toast was unexpectedly good. Another surprise hit was their housemade lemonade, it was reminiscent of Mexican Agua frescas with the sediment at the bottom. The menu variety was alright but not spectacular, certainly covered the basics. The interior was pleasant & spacious but unfortunately lacked air conditioning. Service was another strong point, our server was very polite & professional. This place could bump up to a 5 star no problem with a bit of work.”

“We sat outside on a warm late morning and had a very good breakfast. I liked how we were warned about the wasps beforehand, but they are everywhere this summer so it is what it is.Overall one of the best values for breakfast that we found on our trip. Two orders of eggs, meat, potatoes, toast and coffee along with a substantial kids meal was less than $40!Food was tasty, coffee was delicious and the service was top notch. Can't wait to come back again on our next visit up the 401 to Montreal.Kid-friendliness: Great kids options and very well priced.”

“This place is a MUST try! Delicious food, friendly service. Recommend the BENE JOE TROP DE SMOKED MEAT (eggs Benedict with pulled smoked meat and cheese curds). Meal came with potatoes and a bowl of fruit. If you enjoy a bit of spice, you also have to try dipping the potatoes in the piri piri sauce on the table! I will certainly be coming back”

“This is a solid place for breakfast. It may not be trendy like some of the restaurants in St. Henri, but all the food is very good, and some of the combo plates are so large that there is more than enough to share (just add an extra coffee). I like the fact that you can order half fried potatoes and half mashed. The owner of the restaurant is always there, and is helping to serve the food with a smile and a friendly chat”

“They were very busy! Understandable, as the food was not only delicious but gorgeously presented as well! I had the Parisian Benedict and it was delicious, and I was so impressed that the asparagus was perfect! I sat on the terrasse and it was lovely. One star off for very slow service, but I definitely recommend!”

“An old restaurant with lovely atmosphere. The eggs are so funny and the service is so warm. It’s a family own restaurant so I guess the waitress is the hostess. She is really friendly. And the host may be the chef, who is also very friendly and we have some interesting talk. The food is above the bar and the price is reasonable. The setting of the food is one of the highlights.”

“Nice place! We checked it out on our last trip to Montreal, this comes from a person that lives in Toronto: portions are huge, none of us was able to finish it all, the food tasted very good. The bread was a bit overtoasted but not a big deal. Its not a fancy place, but you will be satisfied for the price you paid, we all agreed it was quite cheap compared to prices in Ontario. If you dont speak French communication may be a bit of a struggle cause they don’t speak English but we made it and we enjoyed tons. I recommend this place for sure!”

As a side i had a breakfast poutine that i added a sunny side up egg and smoked meat on top. I was barely able to finish my meal because the portions were huge. Next time im in montreal, we definitely need to return here.”

“Food was alright, not spectacular but the service was extremely slow. We had limited time in Montreal (visiting) so it was a shame to wait 30 mins for food to be served. And.. No, it wasn’t crowded but the food took f.o.r.e.v.e.r to come to the table.I was observing the staff & our waitress seemed to have priority mismanagement issue. For example, people who came in after our order was taken, would get their food served first. I found that to be unacceptable, on this side of the planet where tipping is a culture. We still tipped well despite the service falling short. Food was okay but please address the speed of service.”

“We got the Di Capri egg Benedict and the special Papy (Crepes, waffles and french toast), the egg Benedict was good, I love their potatoes but the egg was overcooked, for the special papy, we preferred the french toast, the crêpe and the waffle were okay. Our server was nice and friendly, and the atmosphere was nice”

“Great place to load up on tons of calories before hitting a music festival in Montreal. The banana crepes with Nutella is so good. I have to eat more than two meals at Cora every time I visit. I should be trying new places but I keep coming back to Cora.”
