“Friendly staff, wonderful Latte”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I went with my bf on a Sat morning. It was a bit far from our hotel, but it was all worth it! Staff was super friendly and helpful of the menu. I told them I came here just because of the pic of the latte. Then he even made a signature picture on my latte just for ME. How cool was that! On top of it, the crossiant was awesome too!

“Really good latte”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Went there this morning
Grabbed a few pastries (croissant, chocolate muffin and sweet potato muffin) and a latte
Everything was really tasty and fresh. Really enjoyed my latte.
Will probably go back during our stay here

“Delicious coffee, outstanding service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

My wife found this place online since it was close to our hotel while staying in Montreal. We got there after 11am so didn't have full breakfast options, but the staff was super helpful in helping us choose a bite to eat, and other staff kept checking on us after delivering our coffees and pastries to our table. And free wifi is always nice too, when you're roaming on your cellphone :)

“Good cafe in an office building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Good food, conscientious staff. But don't go expecting a quaint cafe in old Montreal. This is in an office building, and largely serves workers seeking a quick pragmatic bite.

“Very Busy, Mediocre Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

My boyfriend and I went here for a late breakfast on a Saturday. The cafe was very, very busy, and very chaotic. It was not clear where the line formed. You ordered at a register, then sat at a table where food was brought to you, and then returned to the register to pay.

The food wasn't great. I ordered the 1/2 baguettine with swiss cheese; it was a burnt. My boyfriend ordered an egg sandwich on a croissant. His croissant was also burnt. The lattes were actually very good.

I would not return. I might give it another chance for lunch only if the restaurant was nearly empty.
