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

Situated a block from Notre Dame, we stumbled in here to satisfy some grouchy teenage hunger. This place delivered! Prosciutto and mozzarella sandwich for dad, chocolate croissant for the teens and French café-style hot chocolate (creamy luscious decadent goodness!) saved the day. The kids found the free wifi so they could burrow back into their phones and dad could enjoy... More

Wife and I had specially made veggie sandwiches that tasted great. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Good prices and tasty food. Worth a visit...more than once!

I went there after seeing its high rating on trip advisor but was slightly disappointed. The food was just average. It wasn't bad, just not impressive. I did like the fact that it is a family owned restaurant and has excellent hospitality. The quality of food just doesn't match the ratings on here.

Stopped by here on a overnight trip to Montreal. Extremely friendly staff, delicious wraps and a perfectly made cappuccino. I will be back next time i'm in the city for sure! My friend had a chocolate mocha concoction (the name escapes me) and a croissant and she loved them both. At 15$ for breakfast for two, a great value as... More

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.

Wife and I had just visited Notre Dame and looked for a little local place to grab a bite and coffee before New Years Eve festivities. Espace was one of a few places open, so we went in. It was about closing time. We were greeted graciously and the owner made some food and beverage suggestions that were just delicious.... More
