Respond to Review of Shimsha L'Escalier
Review: Without happycow, I would never have found this place (being up the stairs without an obvious sign). It looked a bit like a locals hangout but they were friendly to my non-french speaking tourist self. I went for lunch and had the special with a juice that was reasonably priced for Montreal and it was freshly cooked. The decor was eclectic and arty, with nice local music and wifi access, and I really enjoyed the whole ambience. It isn't fine dining, but the food was tasty. The only disappointment was the lettuce in the salad that needed a wash.
