what’s for breakfast mon cherie?
There is a real life couple behind this Montreal staple, meet Hymnie and Freda. When they decided to open this diner in the city’s Jewish district, I bet they didn’t expect line-ups of hungry loud mouthed Montreal Canadienne fans, hung-over visiting Torontonian undergrads, UGG wearing yuppies and their Burberry scarf donning boyfriends, or me and my leather-jacket clad entourage of Asians. But alas, they did.
The longetivity of this eatery is likely rooted in the excellent food and casual atmosphere.
I love their waffles and mac n cheese. Not together, that’s just gross. A little FYI, I wouldn’t get the bagel and lox platter because it’s overpriced.
