Myself and a colleague were driving around NDG before 7:30 looking for a breakfast place open before 8:00am. now that Picasso is no longer with us the options are fewer. We finally thought of La Belle Province on St-Jacques. My first time having breakfast there and a very pleasant experience indeed. A plate the size one used to get at Picasso with the works, beans, fruit,potatoes etc at about 1/3 less the price we used to pay at Picasso. My poached eggs were perfect, they were very good about substituting (tomato slices instead of home fries) and the service was fast and very friendly. All in all a great experience and I will definitely go back there for breakfast. BTW they open at 5:30am if anyone is interested.
