5326, boul. Saint-Laurent (coin Maguire), Montréal, Canada
This. Place. Is. Great.
My friend was going to take me there for brunch before I left for my holiday; however, the cafe was closed only left for tea room. So there we went.
There’re two parts for Cardinal. The downstairs is the “cafe”, where you eat brunch. And there’s an upstairs, the one I’ve gone with my friend, a tea room. The price is quite cheap, food is very good and fresh, but they only open for a very short time. On Friday and Weekend only, closing at 7 p.m.
However, this place is a bit hard to find as well as get there. My friend and I almost got lost even we got a GPS on our phone. But that might be just us…
When you get off the metro you will need quite a walk. The sign and door are both very inconspicuous.
The little bird sign on the top left is the sign for this cafe.
Inside of the tea room.
We ordered a pot of orange pekoe tea and a plate (forgot the name), everything tasted amazing and very fresh.
And alsooo sausage rolls and Cardinal cake, which they told me is actually bread pudding. All tasted very, very good. The two of us, who didn’t eat anything until 3 p.m. that day, got very full from these.
Beautiful waitress with beautiful smile. Sunshine and vintage. Cute tableware. Good friend. And amazing food!
On a weekend afternoon.
THAT is life.
Oh look they have better photos here (both about the tea room and in french):
