We'll be staying in Vieux-Montréal for 4 nights next week and were hoping to find a nice coffee shop to get our morning coffee and a pastry or similar. We don't want a big breakfast because we'll be loading up on lunch and dinner. :)

Any recommendations or other breakfast places that can't be missed?

      I second O&G but keep in mind they're closed on Sundays & Mondays. Here's their site: http://www.oliveetgourmando.com

          I'll second Veritas. As a Boston hound who makes yearly trips to Montreal, I have found Veritas to offer both great coffee, but also healthy breakfast items. One year we stayed at the Springhill Suites in Old Montreal, and their "complementary" breakfast was an absolute cattlecall. Veritas was an oasis.

            here is another option if you want to try some maple based pastries/croissants, quite an array of choices+other products, i have not tried their coffee but am addicted to their cookies particularly sablons, it is located two blocks west of jacques cartier square, 84, St-Paul Street East
