No one would pretend that Universel Déjeuner & Grillades offers a bucket-list worthy culinary experience or that you are likely to wax poetic about a meal there after you get back home. Sometimes when you are traveling, however, what you want most is a dependable burger, a generous omelet, or, in this case, a filling serving of crepes. Universel can satisfy any of those cravings. The diner packs them in and, in the case of their Peel Street location, in a neighborhood generally lacking in great restaurant options. Close to both Catherine Street shopping and the museums of Sherbrooke Street, Universel is a bustling place where the service is reliably swift and the menu is filled with familiar comfort foods, reasonably priced.
