Byblos Le Petit Café (Montreal: Northern Plateau)

Our friend took us to this Persian place Byblos at her neighbourhood for brunch. It’s a cute place at a cute residential neighbourhood. I love how people in Montreal appreciate the summer a great deal that they would open all their window panels and let in fresh air.

All of us got the same thing: sweet bread, jam, omelette with choices of feta, tomatoes, oriental, dates. We each tried a different flavor for the omelette.

There were also 6 different choices of Jam to choose, we got pistachios, grapefruit and rose. I like the pistachio one the best.  The sweet bread were really good, I wish there were more of them instead of the pita bread.

I got the Omelette with Feta cheese. The “omelette” is more like a scramble egg. The feta cheese were mixed in with the egg so it didn’t taste like egg. It’s quite tasty and easily the best out of the three.

Vero abd Freda got the  Oriental omeltte and Date omelette. Oriental is basically rose water and cinnamon. Both taste sweet. In fact the date omelette taste almost like brown sugar oatmeal. Although tasty at first, the sweetness get tiring after awhile.

We ended our meal with mint tea. It made us feel good after eating all the eggs and sweetness.

Since I’m not familiar with Persian food, I cannot tell if this is authentic at all. The cliente all seems to be non-Persians and the neighourhood is predominantly white so I figured this place is probably not so authentic.  From my not-so-insightful observation of Montreal in 4 days, the most prominent ethnic food in Montreal is definitely Japanese. There are sushi place EVERYWHERE, in fact I felt like I saw more sushi restaurants than Montreal-french place. There were quite a number of Vietnamese places too.

    The owners and the cook are Iranians, so I’d say it’s authentic.
