Always busy, always stocked with their products. I love love love their strawberry cheesecake. The only think about this location it does smell like B.O sometimes, and the tables are usually dirty from previous customers.

I visited these place everyday during my stay in Montreal. Their coffee and their hot chocolate leaves Starbucks ashamed. They have cheesecake pies (covered with strawberries) that is terrific. Don't miss it.

Second Cup is located all over the city. They offer great coffee and the atmosphere is great and service is excellent. Nice to visit a coffee shop other than Starbucks.

I had never heard of Second Cup, but assumed it must be a Canadian franchise similar to Starbucks. I opted to try it out vs. walking back down a few blocks to Starbucks. I must say I was very pleased with the service. The staff was extremely friendly and even managed to make me laugh. I must mention too that... More

Interesting layout, felt welcoming to this Albertan and his Montreal host... got flirted with making the host jealous, but good otherwise

I stopped with a friend in this branch of second cup. As usual they had very nice coffee as well as other drinks. The nice thing about this branch is that you can easily stop in it when strolling in the downtown.

Their lattes tasted particularly good to me, rich but smooth. Decent selection of savory and sweets for breakfast. Fast and efficient. Lots of places to sit.

There are everywhere. Coffee is good. Should you ask for anything special, ensure it is well understood as Second Cup are in a rush at the beginning of the day.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
