Great coffee, mediocre pastry, depending on staff either great or the worst service ever. Would definitely visit again for the coffee, but that's all.

My wife is a coffee fanatic, and this was her favorite place during a weeklong vacation in Montreal and Quebec City. Kind service is a plus.

I came here in mid May 2017. First, the place is small and for that reason can often get crowded. However, there is usually at least one table available. The coffee was great and service also great.

Friendly staff, decent selection of pastries and yummy cold brew. A nice space to get work done aside from the noontime lunch rush.

This is a lovely little cafe on Rue St. Denis with delicious beverages and friendly bilingual staff. My soy chai latte was excellent, and my fellow traveler's coffee was also good, but best of all were the almond croissants, which were flying off the shelves...More

...and proper coffee. We stayed at a nearby hotel that does not have bar, and we discovered this excellent cafe. They offer really nice coffee and cappuccinos, as well as delicious croissant, especially the almond ones. The atmosphere is very relaxed.
