A pretty satisfying Nutella and strawberry crepe

On a miserable, cold, rainy day, this place hit the spot with silky smooth Belgian hot chocolate and hot waffles drenched in chocolate sauce and fruit. They have two kinds of waffle batter to choose from, innumerable types of chocolate drinks, and lots of savoury options. Could be a nice weekend brunch option in the market. Cons: I found the place to be a bit too dark inside; charging $3 for a side of fruit that was basically two pieces of banana and a pineapple chunk was a bit outrageous; and the lovely girl sampling hot chocolate outside had hairs in two of the cups... Yeesh. Still it's always nice to get a taste of Montreal's finest dessert houses without having to drive all the way there!

I would agree that the interior of the market location is a bit frumpy, especially compared to the slick interior of the Lansdowne location. However, all was fine when we were seated and ordered our food. Service was attentive: water on the table, timely check ins and friendly staff. The food was as good as the Lansdowne location's.

I was starving so ordered the Savoury waffle. It is grilled mushrooms, red onions, ham and 2 fried eggs with cheese, béchamel sauce and maple syrup. It was very good, not perfect. The others in my party had the Cacao waffle and strawberry and Nutella crepe and both were pretty good.

The Hot chocolates were good too. Again, it's not the wow experience but it's pretty good. How can chocolate on everything not be good?

Having eyed this place up for a while, I decided one day to skip lunch and go straight to dessert!

The Illegal Chocolate Waffle ($13.50) was as decadent as it sounded on the menu. A (surprisingly good) hearty waffle, topped with a generous supply of caramelized sugar glazed bananas, all drizzled with melted Belgian chocolate. Also on the plate were dishes of (spray can) whipped cream, crunchy chocolate wafer balls, and more melted chocolate.

It was pretty epic. The quality isn't amazing, but it makes for a really special treat in that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sort of way. This is as close as most of us will get to enjoying rivers of chocolate.

The interior of the restaurant was surprisingly grungy on a bright day at lunchtime. It might be nicer at night!
