Variety of delicious vegan options

Many different tasty choices in this cute and eclectic cafe. Have a coffee (Almond, oat, soy available), one of the 7 entrees and finish your meal with the delectable coffee cake. Great friendly service and quirky decor.

Great spot!

Great little breakfast spot. I had the vegan breakfast platter which had tofu, a generous helping of roasted veggies, salad with veggie pate on top, and toasted bread with olive oil. It’s small in there but cozy atmosphere.

Pros: Weekday breakfast (closed Tuesdays), Good coffee, Nice staff

Très bon brunch

Un bon moment, il faut être patient en heure de pointe surtout si vous venez en groupe car l'endroit est petit il peut donc y avoir de l'attente. Les options véganes sont variées, ils font leur propre végé pâté à base de graines de tournesol (sans noix). Il y a parfois des options sucrées véganes mais c'est rare, il faut donc se rabattre sur les smoothies pour satisfaire sa dent sucrée.

Pros: Beaucoup options véganes, Plats originaux, Bon service

Cons: Peu de place, Manque d'options sucrées

Cute, colorful cafe! I went for brunch today and had to wait a bit cause the place gets really busy, but it was definitely worth it. Their vegan breakfast is massive!

Cute place with a great breakfast

I had a great experience here! 4 stars because there is not a lot of vegan options, maybe 2 or 3. BUT it was the best breakfast I had during my time in Montreal! The vibe of the place is exactly what you want to start your day.

Pros: Delicious breakfast, Friendly staff, Great vibe

Cons: Limited options

Really cute place

Sometimes you just want a good simple sandwich or salad and that's exactly what the José family offers. Simple, fresh ingredients adequately seasoned for an affordable price in a beautiful location with friendly staff. Don't change anything.

Pros: So many vegan options!!!, Beautiful spot, Tastyyyy

Cons: Victim of their success, sometimes there's a line

Petit-déjeuner ou déjeuner

Un bon resto pour le petit-déjeuner où le déjeuner. Ils ont un plat vegan pour petit-déjeuner avec tofu, pommes de terre, des légumes, et un peu de la salade. Plus ils ont très sandwiches vegans (un de pâté et légumes, un burrito avec tofu, et un autre) et beaucoup de lait végane pour le café. C’est un lieu mignon et les gents sont très sympas. J’aime!

Great brunch spot!

This cafe is a really nice find. The atmosphere is quite cozy and the staff were all very friendly. We shared the vegan breakfast - delicious, full of veggies, and easily enough for two. The only disappointment was that their Pasteis de Nata are not vegan (the rest of the pastries were)
Note: cash only, but they had an atm.

Pros: Tasty food, Really friendly staff

Brazilian/Portuguese with Vegan Options

What a surprise to find a Brazilian/Portuguese restaurant with plentiful vegetarian and vegan options! Both cultures are known for their meat-based diets. The tofu salad was excellent, as the tofu had been marinated in a spice that I was unfamiliar with but was, nonetheless, very tasty. I had the lemon poppy seed vegan gateau cake for dessert which was authentically Portuguese, according to my Portuguese partner, and reminded him of visiting his relatives in the Azores as a kid. He had the chorizo sandwich which he felt was not traditionally Portuguese, but was extremely delicious.

Pros: Excellent food for all types of food lovers, Friendly staff

Cons: Small and cramped, A bit noisy, They only accept CASH

Delicious eats!!

Lots of selections for everyone as they have many vegetarian options and a few non-veg and vegan options! Little something for everyone! The vegan breakfast was amazing! Probably the best dish I've ever had. Extremely flavorful! We were a group of 4 (2 vegans and 2 nonveg) and all were very pleased with the food! Ended up being the favorite food visit of the whole trip for everyone!

Pros: Big portions, Well priced

Pretty good

Very cosy place! I’m think the food was good maybe it’s more not my type of food, rather than that the place did anything wrong. Great smoothie and pretty good hot chocolate too. The menu was a bit confusing tho, because they didn’t have everything it said they had.

Pros: Many options, Very cosy , Tasty smoothies

Cons: Confusing menu , Crowded

Good Breakfast!

They serve a vegan breakfast: Tofu with sautéed vegetables and potatoes, served with végé paté salad and toast.
They also have soy and almond milk available. I've tried their vegan burrito as well and it was delicious!
