Where came here upon recommendation by our hotel concierge that was worth while visiting and close to our hotel, nestled within the Old Montreal. The exterior is very unassuming where you can walk past and miss it.
At the front of the cafe is a small delicatessen where you will find delicious imported European products for sale as well as freshly made salads and patisserie items to take away.
Le Cartet is a light, airy and modern cafe, offering a selection of freshly baked patisseries and food cooked to order from the menu with a European influence. Proving very popular with the young and old.
Lucky for us we did not have to wait for a table as there were two of us, though if you were dining as a larger group there was a wait, as I saw a group of people waiting for a table.
Croissant with Jam – packaged jam. Good crumb but not as flaky as I was hoping the croissant to be. It was served at room temperature, thought would have appreciated if it had been served warm.
Ham and Cheese Quiche – single serve quiche served with salad – quiche is served warm with a small side of salad. This was not enough for my hungry stomach.
Brunch Des Cantons is a selection of house made smokey baked beans, pork sausage, scrambled eggs, duck fat potatoes, bacon and crispy bacon. Great meal for someone is who either hungry or want a large meal.
Orange Juice – are freshly squeezed, this came as part of the brunch dish that Mr Wasabi ordered. I personally found it slightly tart but was good enough for Mr Wasabi.
One of my favourite cafes in Montreal and am willing to return again the next time I visit. If you are ever in Montreal and am looking for a nice cafe to dine at, I would suggest you make a visit to this cafe, you will not be disappointed.
