When I walked in here, I saw a row of apple computers with human faces behind them and mugs of coffee beside them. One weirdo was reading a book. Delta blues music is being played. A server with a full regalia of tattoos shows me the choices, which include fig and cheese sandwich. This place is interesting, after all. My... More

We stopped by here on a couple of occasions when visiting the bike shop next door and had espresso. Nice window seats with a view of the park. The staff kept the shop very clean despite the fact they were busy each time we were there.

The iced coffee here is a must in the summer. I often stop at Cafe Plume when Im biking in the area during the summer and need a refreshing drink. The terrace makes it extra-enjoyable. Not to mention the friendly owner who is not shy to strike up a conversation :)

Cafe Plume has great music and decent fare, and they always have great artwork and cool magazines displayed at the back. I'm not crazy about working there on my laptop as it is always CRAMMED during the week, and on the weekend you can only work on your laptop on the little ledge at the window. It's a nice place...

This place has signs reminiscient of a an airport security checkpoint posted all over the place, 'forbidding' laptops at tables. They will also rudely tell you to leave if your rate of consumption isn't sufficient for them. That might work in Toronto or wherever the owners of this place are from, but it doesn't work here in Montreal. As for... More

If you're near strolling along Mont Royal near St Urbaine - be sure to stop for a hot/iced coffee from this place. It's exactly the type of place you'd want to get your neighbourhood coffee from. They even take the extra time to make your hot espresso drink have the fancy artwork on top. It just means that they put... More

I’m a writer and like to linger in coffee shops with my laptop, taking in the aroma of espresso while trying to find my inspiration. When I found Café Plume, I thought I had found a gem – great food and ambiance. Unfortunately I was tactlessly told today that if I wanted to linger, I would need to do that... More

Café Plume is another of the new crop of places which have bloomed in Montréal in the last 18 months or so. It was recommended to me by Marie-Ève of the Pikolo Espresso Bar and is best described as a neighbour café. Located on the eastern edge of the plateau area of Montréal, opposite Parc Jeanne-Mance, it’s a laid-back, relaxed... More

On a rainy day, I went into La Plume : very nice coffees, Kusmi teas, comfy seats and great music (which is very important I think). I started with a Cortadito, really tasty. So enjoyable to seat there, with your coffee, your book... And moreover, on Mont Royal Street, near the park ! Excellent !

perfect place to stop in for coffee after a run up Mt-Royal. Friendly staff, delicious coffee, and great sandwiches. Finally, good coffee in the neighbourhood!
