Visiting from Long Island, New York for a week, we found this place after touring Notre Dame. Great place for sandwiches, coffee and most of all their breakfast options. I'm a big eater in the morning so I tried their Panini DeJeuner Supreme (2 eggs, bacon, ham, tomato, lettuce and mayo on a generous Panini loaf), this thing was equivalent... More

While visiting Montreal, hubby and I found Espace Cafe to be one of the greatest breakfast spots ever. We made it our breakfast joint! The coffee was superb, our meals were outstanding and the team there was welcoming. A must when you are visiting the historic Montreal .

I had the good fortune of spending some time studying at this cafe and man was I blown away by how good the coffee was. I had a Cappuccino, followed by a freddo, which is a type of iced espresso. The staff was very friendly and easy to talk to. Their sandwiches, although I didn't get around to having one,... More

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.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
