“The best espresso and probably the best sandwiches in Montreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

If you want the best coffee and sandwiches in the old montreal Espace Cafe is definitely the place to go to.
The advantage of a family business is that the staff is very friendly and really paying attention to what they serve you.
They only use high quality products for the food and the best italian coffee for the espresso. You have to taste the italian hot chocolate as well.
I'd recommend this place 100%.

“super yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We went to Espace every day--the coffee/cocoa/tea are insanely good. The pastries/sandwiches were scrumptious. The staff is very friendly. Window seats make for great people watching. The service is nice and fast. It is a don't miss.

“What's with the ranking?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

It WAS a good cappucinno and pain au chocolate. The service was terrific. But, the atmosphere was a bit stark feeling & the choices for food were quite slim. Not sure why the top rating.

“Dreary Atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Searched this place out on TA due to its high ranking and hopes of a good coffee. The coffee was fine but the ambience was very dreary and service indifferent. Really don't see why this place has such a high ranking considering a myriad of great places nearby.
