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.

    It wasn't a super hot day, but it was so hot inside. We asked for ice since they gave us warm tap water but never got it. I love this place and would love it even more with AC or solutions to keep clients comfortable. Food was perfect !

    Food took over 45 mins to come to the table. Service was awful. Their matcha drinks were watered down. We had to grab our own utensils from the takeout bar and a to-go box to take the remaining food home because our server was useless and never brought anything to our table even when we requested it & she never checked up on us. She didnt even refill our water when we asked for more. The food was bland and cold. The worst brunch spot in montreal.

    Liked the selection on the menu. Choices were different than at traditional breakfast restaurants. Prices are higher than norm for breakfast but you are paying for uniquenesses. Service could have been better. Not friendly, didn’t come to see us if anything was required after we were served. Service was slow. Bathroom on dining main floor was dirty. Floors was all wet in was nasty. Didn’t know where to step. Garbage overflowing with papers. Well below expectations. Not sanitary.

    We were disappointed with our experience. The food was mediocre. The cereal on the pancakes was stale. The service was slow. We had a toddler with us and they didn’t have a high chair. The bathroom was filthy and the garbage overflowing. I understand there is only in bathroom but then it should be quickly cleaned hourly. My friend enjoyed her cocktail and we agreed the chicken was the best part of the meal.

    Food and drinks were super tasty. Initially we waited 10-15 mins to even be greeted at our table. People who arrived after us were given drinks before us and no one did a check in with us when we received our food. Our plates sat on the table for a super long time before someone came over to collect them. Our server did not a great job.

    This was my second time at Barley. First time, it was amazing! Second time, I ordered the same exact dish and coffee: this time there were no decorations, no colourful touches, the coffee also came without the colourful cereals, so it was very disappointing. Plus the service was not great, very slow.

    Barley is usually my favorite breakfast restaurant. But this time the service was horrible. My table wasn't ready when I arrive for my reservation and they didn't want to seat me until at least to of my friends arrived. Then we waited at least 30 minutes or more just to order a coffee. We then ordered our food at least 20 minutes later, we haven't received our coffees yet. My 3 friend ordered the Matcha pancake, but one of them received the chocolate sauce not heaten up, I had to go get our waitress because she never came to our table. Finally, nobody came to see us with bill or anything, but the hostess came to see us to tell us that we've been here for more then 2 hours and we needed to leave. We probably received our food 1h30 after the beginning of our reservation and this is why we we're still there after 2 hours. I have to say that when she came to ask us to leave, our plates we're still on the table and nobody came to ask us if we wanted something else. Really disappointed in the service. First time fo my three other friends and I don't think they will want to come back.
