Why cereal?

You see, there’s cereal in everything on the menu. Cereal—and more specifically barley—is our pride and joy. All of our dishes revolve around grains. The way we see it, the flour that goes into our pancakes, the oats we turn into granola and the sourdough we put avocado onto, that’s all cereal. We pride ourselves in being creative, and squeezing cereal into everything is how we do it best.

We also offer cereal-inspired vegan and gluten-friendly options. However, due to the ever-present cereal in our kitchen, we cannot certify 100% absence of cross contamination.

    We really enjoyed our experience but mostly because we were in the meeting room so it was less noisy but still are to hear. Nice service and delicious food.

    Everything was very good but I found the music and the noise level too loud to have a conversation with those at the table. Otherwise everyone enjoyed their food and the service was very good.

    They asked us to wait even tho we book it for 11.45 and it was 11.55. Then they gave our table to someone else because they forgot we were waiting. We could seat only at 12.15 and ordered at 12.35/40. Then, we were served one hour after we ordered. The manager offered us the drinks because of the delay which was very appreciated by us! However, the waitresses didn’t seem to pay much attention to our table, and we were served after several tables that came after us. Overall not a great experience because we left around 3.45 and we had to work so we were late for that. But the space is super nice, the coffee is nice even tho I didn’t see cereals decorations on our drinks (I found it weird considering their pictures on Instagram ) and we liked the gesture from the manager. They seem overwhelmed (which is understanding with the current situation here in Quebec and the lack of workers).

    This is our second time going to Barley for brunch, and both times we’ve been somewhat disappointed. The service is a bit slow, either in seating us or our actual orders. The place gets noisy and tables are very close to one another. Some items are definitely worth ordering like the pancakes and labneh platter, but the bowls didn’t impress us. Overall, I’d be curious to try it out on a quieter day to experience more their menu.

    Waitress was polite and friendly. The food was great. However, it took forever for us to get our plates after placing our orders which impacted our experience. Suggestion: getting chairs for kids to accommodate clients that come with kids.

    I love Barley for a good brunch, my favourites are the halloumi and the gravlax platter. This time I took the halloumi platter and it wasn’t the same as usual. The halloumi was room temperature almost cold and not as good as it usually is. Not well grilled. Overall it was okay, they probably had it already done which is a bummer but wtv. They have nice drinks <3

    I ordered according to what I saw in the photo of the site but when the plate arrives it is not as in the photo because for example the eggs and salmon come extra and this is not mentioned :( long wait and my sausages were cold there seemed to be a problem in the kitchen too bad

    Really enjoyed eating here! The ambience was great and the food was delicious. We had 2 lattes and one of them was the maple syrup latte. We also had the avocado toast and pancakes (AMAZING and fluffy). Really enjoyed eating here, although the server did her best it seemed a bit short staffed. Our coffees and food took a considerably long time. Otherwise, a nice breakfast spot.

    The place is gorgeous, food delicious, coffee delicious, and the staff really sweet. Even with reservation, had to wait an extra 20 min. Not mad, but something to consider if you haven’t eaten and are very hungry. After ordering the food and coffee, both came at the same time, but both took a very long time to arrive. The staff was kind enough to let us know it would take a little time for our food. Maybe if food takes time, bring the coffee before? A suggestion. Thank you for the lovely brunch 🤍

    Réservation de prise mais pas de table disponible, attente interminable, serveuse déserte. L’hôte qui nous a reçu était sympa heureusement. La nourriture est bonne heureusement mais je ne reviendrai pas ou bien j’essaierai en semaine et non un week end… L’endroit est extrêmement bruyant on ne s’entend pas parler, c’est dommage.

    What's the point of reserving when I still have to wait over 30 minutes for my table. I reserved for 4 people and was told that they were preparing a table for us and the wait time would be 5-10 minutes. After 20 minutes later, they said the same thing. Throughout the time waiting, they have been seating walk ins ( for a table of 2), and when someone comes at the reserved time, they tell them, they have to wait cause they're full. Finally, when they say they have a table for us, it's a single table at the corner next to the door . It was a seat for two. I came with elders, and it is frustrating that after so long, they decide to seat us at a table for two when we're four people. Only after speaking to the manager, we managed to get a decent sized table within 5 minutes .

    The food was delicious. Pricey but worth it. Ambiance was trendy. The thing that bothered me the most was the one tiny bathroom that they had for the whole restaurant. It smelled so bad and was very dirty. Paper thrown everywhere…Obviously nobody was cleaning it. I wish I hadn’t gone to the bathroom because it really turned me off from my whole experience.

    On nous a fait quitter la table parce qu’il y avait du monde qui arrivait bientôt mais le service a été très long donc on a passé plus de temps à attendre nos plats que de profiter du moment. De plus, nous avons prit une boisson pour la route et il se sont trompé… ils nous on fait attendre dehors ne attendant parce qu’il fallait absolument partir… Bref, nourriture délicieuse mais service a revoir

    I had the matcha pancakes but switched the hibiscus syrup with maple syrup. It was delicious. The employee seemed a bit confused by my request but I'm the end I had what I ordered. I tried also the lavender cold matcha latte which I loved too. If you like coffee do try their iced coffee with cereals, my friend was really enthusiastic about it. I was sitting on a very comfortable couch style bench whilst my friend was on a normal seat. If you do have the option, pick the bench!
