We stopped in here for a quick rest while exploring Montreal and ended up having lunch. The lattes were excellent, and the paninis were surprisingly good!

Me and my girlfriend ducked into this lovely cafe to get out of the cold where we were met by warm and friendly staff and a cozy cafe environment. A gem in Montreals old town that all travellers should experience.

I've been going every day even many times a day since i discovered this warm welcoming family owned business. They have excellent specialty coffees! My personal favorite is the cappuccino. Excellent and affordable breakfast and lunch. Give a try!

I had Chicken on nan with pesto and my husband had the steak panini and we both loved our sandwiches. The staff were very pleasant. It is a very quaint restaurant. The soup also looked great!

We're currently sitting in Espace Cafe having just had the best cappuccino of our 2 week trip to the US and Canada. Lovely atmosphere, great friendly staff and a wonderful coffee. We also had the prosciutto panini which was amazing too. Wifi is complimentary when you ask for the pass code. Makes a nice change from the larger chain coffee... More
