Java U is a chain. As a Montrealer, I would never go there.
For a good cafe experience I recommend Brioche Lyonnaise near Berri-UQAM metro. Great food, great coffee, and front (streetside for people watching) and rear (garden for privacy) outdoor seating areas.
Orni, any other suggestions?
Went to that Java U because I live nearby and I think they don't know what a good coffee is. I would go to little italy for that.
Orni is right; nobody does coffee like the Italians.
If you are italian like Rob and I (rob im assuming u are italian?) noone makes it like us! (or our parents for that matter)
Orni, never eat at that Java U near your place, I definitely got sick there over the weekend!
AB - Did you go to La Iguana?
Lexah, it was booked solid on Friday night so the hostess suggested El Zazzium on Laurier, it was o.k but I wont be going there again.
