Tiny and charming
I was here for a mid-morning coffee break. This coffee shop is tucked away in Old Montreal. Inside it is very small, with seating on two levels. Our small group sat on the lower level, and a cold blast of air greeted us with every new arrival.
The menu is posted on blackboards overhead: beverages, panini, and breakfast items such as muffins and croissants. (Egg-based items are only sold before 11 A.M.) The sandwiches sounded scrumptious, but I found it too early on my visit to order lunch. I had originally ordered a small drink, but the cashier rang it up as a medium. Through mutual agreement, we upgraded the size to a medium — the difference was only 60 cents. They do not have a loyalty card.
The staff were very charming and pleasant. It was very relaxing to come here, and I would probably go back if I were in the area.
Dishes I tried:
