Myriade reminds me of Vancouver and that is ALWAYS a good thing, because in my opinion, it's (Van) the coffee capital of Canada. But I digress.
I really like Myriade because they make amazing lattes. They also use/sell some of my favorite beans from 49th Parallel (from Vancouver!) and Black Cat and that's always a bonus. The staff is very friendly and happy to enlighten you, should you have questions about roasts, bean quality, grinds etc. They're also not over-priced, unlike some coffee shops. Love it!
Myriade is very small, so I see it as a to-go place, more than anything. That said, they do have an outdoor patio that's great when the ground isn't covered with snow and it's not -30 :-). Up side: They offer baked goodies from Pikolo that are to die for - perfect with your morning (or afternoon) coffee. Try the peach & coriander muffin - YUM!
Note that this café is right next to Concordia and is therefore a student hangout. If you go during peak hours, you can forget finding a seat!
So.... what are you waiting for? Go check'em out!
