    Delicious meal at pois penché but exorbitant prices. $88 for french toast, American breakfast and 3 coffees. Come on!! Yes it’s a great place but the prices are insane. They could at least give you the coffees. They cost us $15. Great place when you have a lot of cash to spend on breakfast.
    Le Pois PenchéResponded on May 14, 2024
    Hi AlanL, Thank you for your nice compliments to our food. We are sorry you felt the prices were high. Please, allow us to explain, We believe we are among the least expensive brunches in our neighbourhood in the same restaurant category. We aim to give our guests outstanding quality. Our French toast ($24) is a lovely, thick brioche bread with homemade strawberry coulis topped with homemade cream of cheese and white chocolate, and fresh strawberries. Our American breakfast ($23) includes sous-vide maple bacon thick as a steak and French-style sausage—all made in-house—plus eggs, potatoes and confit tomatoes. Even our jams are made by our chefs. We try our best to give you quality and hospitality for your money. We'd love to host you again! Fede Director of hospitality

    My wife and I entered this restaurant and were greeted by Omar. He was charming and welcoming. Then Hugo took us to our table and took time to answer our questions about the history of the restaurant. Antonio (Tony) was our server. He was knowledgeable about the food and wine and served us in a friendly and efficient manner. The food was fabulous! Prepared to perfection and served hot. We can’t say enough about Le Pois Penche. It’s on our list of favourite restaurants. We WILL be back. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    We ordered our food medium rare and had all of our burger and steaks well done . We ordered a glass of wine which was suppose to be 8 oz and received about 5 oz . Our reservation was at 930pm but doesn’t mean they had to rush and make the food to whatever temperature they wanted . Won’t come here again they need to do better .
    Le Pois PenchéResponded on May 13, 2024
    Hello, JeremieF: Please, allow us some clarifications. Your party changed the reservation twice and arrived later than 9:30, but we understood and it was our pleasure to accommodate you. Your order was placed 5 mins before closing time (10pm), which is perfect. The chefs were happy to serve you. We have 8 oz wine carafes and 5 oz glasses. Maybe we brought the wrong one, but you were charged for 5 oz, not 8. As for the meat, overcooking takes longer than undercooking. The chefs wouldn't overcook intentionally if they were rushing. Still, the wine sizes and the cooking points were mistakes on our part. We wish errors never happened, but it's impossible. We apologize sincerely and hope to regain your confidence and welcome you again for a proper Pois Penché feast. Fede Dir. of hospitality
