“Trip to Montreal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

Handy nice coffee shop in the old part of Montreal city. Pretty standard fare of coffee, scones and sandwiches. Service was really slow on the day I was there. The tables were not cleared.

“Jam packed on New Years Eve”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

We stopped in for coffee in the afternoon on new years. The place was trashed and the barista was rude. I know what its like to want to leave work to go out, but just be halfway decent to customers..

Overall:
-Rude service
-Excellent desserts - the raspberry cheesecake was good(which we HAD to get to go because they closed in 20 minutes, but hey no big deal...)
-Tables dirty and real rough
-Average coffee at best, I burned my mouth because I was rushing, should have gotten everything to go or just turned around and left looking back.. Kinda makes me never want to drink their k cups, I'm from the states and had never been to a van houtte before. Oh well.

“Not bad. But there is better in Montreal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2012

Espresso not too hot, actually served warm and not very good quality. Wife enjoyed cappuccino however. Clean, but not too much light inside. Hans from hamburg.

“Good Lunch - Try It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2012 via mobile

I walked to this place from the convention center, and had a very good lunch - panini and salad and drink for about $10. Friendly service. Free Wi-Fi!
