Just a stone's throw from Omni, on Peel. Wide choice of breakfast items, quick and attentive service, reasonable prices, generous portions. Bagel with smoked salmon very good, also crepes with fruit and creme anglaise, as well as standard breakfast items.

This is (was) my favorite breakfast spot in Montreal. Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Tasty food and coffee, inexpensive prices and friendly staff. I went there this a.m. and sadly found a burned out shell. A fire had destroyed the restaurant.

Given the 4 star rating, we decided to give this breakfast place a try, as it is one of the earliest ones opened in town. However, the food was below average, service was poor and quite rude. We had ordered a vegetarian omelette, but were...More

Amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown Montreal, Universel is located with great lunch options: sandwich, salad, lasagna and much more. And of course you have poutine for appetizer Fun environment with good food

Manager was pretty rude. Food was average along with the service. Gave the standard feel of wanting you to leave as quickly as possible.
