“One of the better Montreal coffee experiences”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Someone needs to tell them that the GF baked goods cannot be in the same area ( and use the same tongs) as the regular bakery items. On a block chock full of coffee items, this is where I chose to have my morning Joe. Nice staff, nice vibe, better than average coffee.

“Bonjour Montreal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Perfectly located for the McGill students, large windows flooding the place with light. We had the richest granola bar ever, a croissant lighter than air and a good yoghurt parfait all fresh. Superb
Cappuccino and Pikolo latte good not great

“Morning in Montreal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

On our first day in Montreal (there with five siblings, cousin and boyfriend), my brother and cousin and I were the first to wake up. As the needy Americans we are, we needed coffee. Our hotel manager suggested Pikolo coffee, right across the street. Thank goodness because it was the best coffee we had--by far. They even do the fancy milk drawings, so fancy I had to Instagram mine before I could drink it. Better than Tim Hortons, Starbucks and Second Cup. What a pleasant atmosphere, staff and drink!

“It is the best coffee in Montreal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I tried about ten cafes that were on the list of best coffees in Montreal. And I know Montreal is always in the top 3 or 4 cities in the world to drink a decent coffee. Pikolo stood out from the crowd. Coffee, service and the vibe of the place was just spot on. I rate it 5 out of 5 for sure but it is not a restaurant per se as there is no food except sweets, scones, croissants and brownies etc .. Also they do not take any cards at all except for a local debit card which was a little odd to be honest - I had never encountered that in Canada before.
