  1. Smoked Salmon dishes are very good there. Fresh squeazed juices a must.

      I always thought that the waiters at Eggspectations resembled bouncers trying to navigate their way through a crowded nightclub. The egg dishes are good, but the restaurant itself is so unbelievably noisy and the seats so uncomfortable, it never seemed worth the discomfort for merely average food. I would suggest the excellent eggs and fresh-squeezed juices at L'avenue in the Plateau, the quick-and-dirty casual feel of Place Milton in the McGill ghetto, or a nice, luxurious French brunch in the beautiful garden at Le Figaro in Outremont. It is well worth the quick taxi or bus ride from downtown.

    2. Pleasant staff, quick eats, great breakfast choice.

      1. By Montreal standards, this is a relatively expensive meal. Food is only average. While some claim it to be energetic, I think that the Eggspectation near McGill is way too noisy. Is this really want you want in the morning? A headache?

        Despite what hype reviews claim, Montreal's breakfast roster is weak. Competition is slim, there's nothing close to star chef quality, prices are expensive and service is SLOW.

        If you have this kind of time, you can make better yourself.

        Save your money for a ubiquitous Montreal lunch special. You'll do so much better.
