We stayed at hotel close to Notre Dame and wanted some good coffee so we found this place just a block away. Staff is very friendly and the service was spot on. Not only is the coffee delicious and inexpensive, their croissants are one of the best we have tasted outside of France. They also have chocolate and almond croissants.... More

We ordered veg paninis which were delicious. My latte was good too. The atmosphere is a very simple coffee shop with lots if small tables. Very convenient old Montreal location!

The sndwich is good, the coffee is good, the owner is super nice and there is WIFI for you. That's all you need for an afternoon tea after the visit to old Montreal.

It was about closing time. We were greeted graciously and the owner made some food and beverage suggestions that were just delicious.... More

As soon as you step in you will feel a warm welcoming from the staff. The food is freshly made. The service is quick. The coffee/latte is just so tasty. All for an affordable price.

My chicken and pesto sandwich had a good taste but was not hot enough. The sandwiches are pre made and heated to order. We did not try the coffee or pastries while we were... More
