Last Saturday my friend and I had brunch at the restaurant of Musee Pointe-a-Callieres in Old Montreal. It is more of a lunch place, but they do offer 3 breakfast options in their table d’hôte and a few a la carte options, like French toast and croissants. We showed up at the opening (11:30 AM) and were seated inside. After insisting it was warm enough outside, we were able to be seated outside (tables for 2 only) On to the food…
I had the omelet with portobello mushrooms, spinach and sir laurier cheese. It came with a side of mashed potatoes and a puree of (I think) lentils and eggplant. It was very tasty, cooked perfectly and seasoned well.
My friend had the quiche with saucisson and leeks with a side of a very tasty salad. The appetizer was a salad (double salad for him) or a soup but it was clam-based and not to my taste. Dessert was a plate of 3 mini desserts – coconut and banana sorbet, pannacotta with pear syrup and almond cake. Delicious coffee was also included. Both our table d’hôte were $13.50 so I think it is a great value.
We were not rushed out and our waiter, though cold at first, was very pleasant. I noticed on the menu their full breakfast plate with poached eggs, bacon, toast, etc. but haven’t tried it.
I would go back for sure, the place is nice, the food is good and the price is fair.
