Strong coffee and delicious paninis. Very friendly staff that gives great recommendations. It does feel like a nice escape from the city.

Visited this place for breakfast. The croissant and chocolate croissant (pain au chocolat) was yumm, fresh and soft. Don’t expect anything fancy here but whatever you get will be fresh and delicious. Prices also decent.

Like much of Montreal, there are stairs to get into the cafe so not stroller friendly. Pastries were nice and coffee good. Staff friendly. Expected more given the very high rating on trip advisor. Still a nice cafe.

Small unsuspecting coffee shop just off the Notre Dame square. Small selection, but good quality. $11 for coffee, Chai, cinnamon bun, and iced tea. Some breakfast and lunch options, too.

This cafe was a welcome stop while on our walk around Old Montreal. The coffee and pastries were very good and the service efficient. Reasonable prices too compared with other cafes in the area.
