    review rating 5  This place is great! Love the classic diner feels it gives off, and definitely a great brunch spot after a night out. The food is what you'd expect it to be--as tasty as a diner breakfast gets--but you alway get more bang for your buck with the portion sizes. I would recommend any of the Festin options!

    review rating 5  Every time we visit we come here for our last breakfast in Montreal before the train ride home. Huge portions, good food, friendly and unpretentious service.

    review rating 5  Sunday morning breakfast/brunch was just incredible. There was Eggs Benedict and Waffles in our party and both were great. Eggs Benedict was epic! They make their own Hollandaise sauce and that alone is worth the drive. You will not go wrong - at least with breakfast!!

      Adorable little place with an extensive breakfast and lunch menu! I ordered the Greek Benedict which was quite delicious! As strange as this sounds, the spinach was really what made it! Got my meal a few minutes after everyone else's which always makes me feel a bit awkward. The four of us enjoyed our experience and agreed that we would definitely come back again!

      It's an old diner, with a large menu and big portions. This place was here for ages, on the saint-laurent street.
    I go there from time to time with my friends for a brunch; my favorite is the festin #2, it comes with eggs, bacon, sausages and a buttermilk chocolate chips pancake.

      Amazing food, very big portions and great service! Would come again. We came for breakfast and hoped for the best, not knowing what to expect but it seriously exceeded expectations. Only complaint even thought it didn't change the restaurant experience as a whole was the fact that there was no working AC. They did however have fans around to accommodate. Great service as well!

      Waitress is friendly and attentive, coffee (and refills) are free, and the food is delicious!

      Loved this place! Quite possibly the best pancakes I've ever tasted (and I am a pancake snob to the enth degree.) The couple that runs this place is awesome and always very accommodating. Def our fav. spot to go when we are in MTL.

      A favourite of ours! Always exceptional service and the food always come quickly no matter how busy they are. Big portions for price.

      for starters i made a reservation for new years ever for 9pm( as though they were doing us a favor, and very rude), then my husband changed it to 8:30 with a totally grouchy employee on the phone the same night.  Upon arriving, the manager made me feel like a piece of shit, arguing with me that my reservation was for 9pm and i was early, i explained to him that my husband called like 5 hours ago and changed it to 8:30pm, he, get ready for this,told me no way, i was the only one answering the phones??? are you for real? you are arguing with a customer on new years eve, and blatantly calling them a liar? STRIKE ONE..................thankfully our waiter was great, and he did get a great tip...............the food, mediocre to say the least, how can you advertise shish kebab, and serve a souvlaki on a stick? STIKE TWO; too emabrrased to cause a scene, thanks to my daughters common sense.  The chicken and shrimp get 3 stars , only because the chicken was delicious, as were the potatoes, unfortunately the shrimp was limp and soggy, (this is a $24 plate)............whatever, it was a crappy experience, and i suggest the manager learn that the customer is who needs to be happy and not his overbloated ego,nothwistanding that it was a stressful night...............we went for a change this year..............big mistake................

      Fantastic brunch food - poached eggs with fruit yogurt and a delicious Montreal bagel, an omelette with home fries toast - plus no wait on an early Saturday afternoon.

      Avoid the crèpe! I ordered a spinach and cheese crèpe, couldn't go past 2 bites of it. The thing was soaked in oil, so much so I'm pretty sure I ate 2 spoonful of oil in those two bites.
