Montreal - Le Westin, Olive & Gourmando
Right after settling into our hotel, we set out to explore the city and to get ourselves some lunch; albeit a late one as finding our hotel, checking in and settling into our room took a bit of time. Since Olive & Gourmando was only 0.68 km from our hotel in Old Montreal we decided to head there. Upon arriving, there were quite a few people in the restaurant. Our wait was not too long - about 10 minutes and we were soon shown our table. Ordering at Olive & Gourmando reminds one of being in a Marche where a table is reserved for you, you`re handed a piece of paper and when you order you pass your paper over so she can write down your order. Once you`re done ordering, you sit down and wait for your food. Thankfully, my ability to read French although limited was not horrible so I was able to make out the various sandwiches and soups available for the day.
|One of the only hot sandwiches left: goat cheese melt with |
carmelized onions and ketchup for dipping
|Tomatoes, cuban chicken, guacamole - this one had a|
slight kick to it after a few bites
|These very very delicious - a bit on the pricey side though for 3.25 each|

What a fun restaurant - and a great way to travel there... did you have breakfast on the train? We were there a couple o fyears ago and stayed at the Marriot - then I have stayed at the Sheridan before that... all excellent locations... I can't wait to see your supper post!ReplyDelete
Why don't we have funky little trendy restaurants like that here... the little lables add such ambiance!
Mmm I can almost smell the pastries from your pictures!!ReplyDelete
can you buy the cups/mugs? those are cute!ReplyDelete
@A Canadian Foodie: Yes, this was a great place to eat at. Loved their cute labels and of course the fresh pastries and sandwiches! They're also known for their home-made granola according to their chalkboard. Yes, Le Westin was definitely a good choice and recommended if you're looking for the Old Montreal ambiance while staying in one of Montreal's newest luxury hotels :) Yes, I'm working on the supper post for Montreal Day 1!ReplyDelete
@danprime: mm..yes they were great! Too bad I couldn't bring you back any, we'll have to make a trip out there!
@karebear: Yes the cups are cute. I'm not sure if you can purchase them since I don't recall seeing them around. However, if you're ever there you can always ask or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
