Meet the owner

Alexandre Tomaras always knew he was destined to work in the restaurant business. He began his career in bars, but his real dream was to open his own establishment. Along with his business acumen and the help of his partner, Angelo Rindone, he finally realized his dream in 2006 by opening the Daylight Factory.

Daylight Factory is housed in a century-old building and Alexandre decided to keep the restaurant's name chosen by the original owner, a tribute to the building's architecture, with its large windows that make full use of natural daylight.

From the beginning, Alexandre has put his heart and soul into the Daylight Factory to ensure it becomes a flagship restaurant in the neighbourhood. Business began to take off after he restructured the menu to reach a broader clientele, including those in the business sector. He also changed up the staff, recruiting an efficient, experienced crew with a sunny disposition, non-negotiable qualities he feels are crucial to offering up quality service. "In my team, I look for efficiency, experience and a smile. The ability to do several things at once is fundamental," he says.

    Great Place

    Went to a birthday party and had a great time. Decor was great and provided the exact ambiance the night was calling for. Definitely recommend to anyone!

    Love this place. Beautiful terrasse. I had the menu du jour: salad with tomato and feta (delicious) and the eggplant lasagna (very good although the green salad it came with needed a better dressing).

    Poor service, lack of engagement, clear explanation, knowledge of the menu, asked for bread and butter but just crouton available, coffee (americano et macchiato) was discusting and barista doesn't know what a macchiato is, told the waiter, was still charged for it. Fortunately, the meal was good... but not going back.

    The magnificent wooden terrace of this restaurant-bar-café situated on St-Alexandre Street is the place to be for an enjoyable 5@7 on Thursday nights, one of their specialties. Here, we’re in the middle of the Quartier international de Montréal, but prices remain very reasonable. The Daylight Factory is an ideal location for meetings after work, surprise birthday parties and various celebrations.
