Respond to Review of La Lumiere du Mile End
Review: My girlfriend made me write this review because she LOVES this place. We went there when I was in town and now she seriously can't stop talking about it. I had the black bean burger which is apparently vegan until you ask for melted cheese on it like I did - heh-heh! and the soup might have been the best soup I've ever had in my life actually. So the food is really great but the space itself is also interesting and chilled out. When we got there the two women behind the counter were bantering with some customers at the counter and they were HILARIOUS! They were friendly and didn't mind all my questions about the menu and they made me coffee exactly to my specifications... without visibly rolling their eyes at me. Kudos! Also the music is really good.. where else can you hear a mix of Edith Piaf, Johnny Cash, The Clash, and the theme song from Fresh Prince of Bel Air (some of the customers broke into an impromptu dance when the last song came on). I know my girlfriend will drag me back there when I'm back in Montreal but she wont have to pull too hard. It's really good.
