Visited this café based on the reviews and was not disappointed. Friendly staff with great service, food was very good, beverages were first class. I would recommend them. One downside was no outdoor seating.

What a great cafe! It's small, but not only was everything we tried first class, but the people were very nice as well. We did not realize we needed to pay when ordering, they never said a word. In the end, when I went to pay, there was no place for an electronic tip. I was told not to worry,... More

If you are in the old town of Montreal and you want a real espresso, this is the place! The menu looks like Starbuck's but it's the real thing.

Stopped here for a lunch one afternoon while in Montreal – and we were not disappointed. Located just off a busy tourist area of Old Montreal, the café is quiet and welcoming! The staff was very friendly and we all enjoyed our lunch of tasty sandwiches, tuna wraps and salads. The place was busy with locals coming for take outs.... More

Terrific lattes and hot chocolate; we went back for sandwiches, which were also very good. Lovely indie space (esp. Compared with Starbucks and the like).

Be sure to come here and grab a bite to eat. We had prosciutto panini, naan bead with chicken and sun-dried tomatoes and blueberry muffins. The staff are very friendly.

This cafe is in a great location, close to the old town and the conference centre. The staff are wonderfully friendly (more than happy to converse in English or French), make a great coffee and serve Montreal's famous bagels. Even better, when you eat here you're supporting a family run business.

We both had panini with chicken and pesto, but my wife steered to the roasted vegetables and I opted for the minestrone soup. We were both happy with our choices, save for the roasted veggies that were mostly peppers and were not at all peppy. The bread was fine, the chicken moist and tasty. My wife said the women's bathroom... More
