Montreal breakfast

We'd love some savoury/sweet crepes and great café au lait in a bowl. Any suggestions?

  1. Spanel on Notre-Dame is a very good crêperie and their backyard terrasse is charming and secluded.

    1. I like P'tit Cochon Santé ( 4293 Notre-Dame west), especially the buckwheat crepes with ham, brie and apple. It comes with an egg and greens with a zesty vinaigrette.

      1. La Bulle au Carré next to carré st-louis on st-denis. Love their crepes, savory and sweet.

          La Bulle is such a nice location too, looking out onto the Carré.

        2. Juliette et Chocolat does both types of crepes (the savoury ones are called galettes BTW). And they do a large cafe au lait, which I assume is in a bowl. I have only had their espresso, so I can't say if their cafe au lait is great or just good, but perhaps someone else can chime in with info on it.

            J&C is ok in terms of coffee. if OP is going to the prince-arthur location, there's Kitsuné next door that does really great coffee. i don't know if it comes in a bowl but coffee is what they do good

          2. I really like the food and atmosphere at bistro passé compose. They have crepes, delicious sandwiches and the best french toast I have ever eaten. Their crepes are sweet so I am not sure if that is a deal breaker for you. The coffee is very good as well. Whenever I have a bowl of cafe au lait I always ask for a double shot of coffee and sometimes that is not even enough.
