This store across from Place Ville Marie Cathcart side, just down from Simons has been there for awhile now and as a chain, albeit a Montreal one, I tended to avoid it. Not able to comment on one order of fried eggs I think it could be an interesting stop for shoppers, tourists who don`t want to run around city looking for breakfast spot. First of all the location is great, the large windows makes a bright room and it is spacious so no lineups! There are large number of choices in menu and they say the syrup is real maple syrup. For $11.95 I had the Cabane a sucre special--2 eggs, large slice of ham, sausage, bacon small container cretons, baked beans, apple sauce, choice of waffle, French toast, pancake (my choice), crepe, 2 slices of toast (your choice of bread) with jam, peanut butter and repeated fillups of coffee, there was also a big serving of cubed potatoes but these I am never like. This was good value for the price especially downtown and the service was friendly and efficient. Less kitschy decor than chez cora. They also will soon be expanding into Ontario. I see they have early bird menu Mon.-Fri. 6-8:30 starting at $3.95.

It may not be everyones cup of tea but I enjoyed it today and will go back to try something else. The smoothies looked good.
