Just discovered it on this site... went to their site to learn more and still have questions: Is this a place for lunch only or can you have dinner here as well? Do they serve wine? I cannot seem to scroll up and down on their site... what am I doing wrong?

    the "cubain"and"chicken" sandwiches are my favorites, I am not sure about the wine, my guess would be no.
    I work around there, it is really packed between 12 and 1
    they dont take reservations

      Hey Jennina - thanks for your prompt reply.
      Can you recommend a casual restaurant in the area for dinner? Open to anything but Indian food.

        well Holder is great.
        Its french-bistro style (the decor is really nice), the bar is great to go have a beer and then move on to dinner. Not too expensive.

        Holder - 407 RUE MCGILL - (514) 849-0333

          If it's nice out, I also recommend Boris Bistro...the terrasse is gorgeous and it's not too expensive.

        You need Macromedia Flash to veiw the site properly. On my screen, the page doesn't scroll. Some lists within the page, such as "O+G Breads" have scroll controls built into them. Look for the fancy, leafy looking, up-down arrow thingies in the upper right corner of the list. Overall, I like their site, but IMHO, it's one of those where slick design prevails over user friendliness.

        They used to be open for dinner on Thursdays. A quick look at their hours indicates that that is probably no longer the case. Not sure if they serve wine as it has been a while since I've been.

          If memory serves, I saw wine bottles stacked behind the counter when I was there for breakfast three weeks ago. Forgot to ask if they were still doing Thursday night dinner but, like yours, my impression is that the answer is no. If so, it's a pity.

            I had wine by the glass there last summer, my last visit there.

          Olive and Gourmando does have a small selection of private import wines that they sell by the glass. In fact, these wines can be purchased to take with you. They do not serve dinner any longer and haven't for quite a while now.

          As for restaurants in the area I would recommend Garde Manger.
