At first when we entered i was shocked how small the ppace is, it just has 3 short tables and 4 tall (bar type) tables, and all were occupied. However we waited for almost 5 minutes when a table became empty. Costumers dont stay here...for long. So if you didnt have seat just wait for few minutes. They are famous for their coffees. And i have to admit its among the good ones. We arrived 12ish and we were so hungry since we didnt had breakfast so we ordered Cortado, Moca, a Sandwitch, Bombolini, Nutella Cookie for 35 CAD incliding tax and later Tiramisu and Cafe Freddo and Cafe Crema Remix (its coffee icecream in coffee). All were yummy. Loved all the tastes. If you see my reviews i hardly give 5/5 score but this place felt good and food tasted good. Thanks Julean for being a great barista.More

Went there Dec 1st with my friend for a girls weekend. This was our first stop after a drive from Maine. We wanted to get some coffee and pastries before we went to explore the Old Port Montréal. We ordered an Americano and a Cafe...Latte, a cannoli, and a Nutella horn. They had other things as well. Serving sizes were the perfect little pick me up for 2 pm in the afternoon. Just enough to have a sweet treat and not ruin our dinner. The Barista (Shawn or Sean) was amazing! Such a personality on him. Flawless English to French and French to English. He told the trick. Limited seating in this place = yes. Take an item of yours and place it on a table or seat before you order. Seat claimed! Coffee was perfection. We went back the next 2 days in row at different times for a cafe pick me up and they ALL made us feel like we were regulars. ( Sean or Shawn, ) even remembered us and our order from the previous day! If you’re like me and your French is well below par, this is a great place to practice! This was my favorite place to return on our entire trip. Thanks for making it awesome. The whole staff was lovely and friendly. Merci Beaucoup!More

A lot of old world charm. Good coffee, excellent service, delicious Italian pastries, soccer and rugby on the tv’s. Spacious interior with Al fresco tables and benches. Busy, busy on Saturday. Go - if you crave Italian ambiance.

!We came in the afternoon on our first day, and it was crushed. We came the following two mornings (we stayed around the corner) early, and we were able to sit and have coffee. All the pastries look good, but the bomboloni seem to be...the house special. The coffee drinks were on point. Friendly service.More

I had thr pleasure of visiting thrice on a 5 day visit. And I think Mr. David was the main reason why I chose this cafe again and again for breakfast. Since I am a tourist and wanted to try new things. David explained all...about patisseries and coffee that they have. He has vast knowledge about food and I loved his recommendations. Trust me just look out for David on your next visit and go with his suggestions. Trust me you will not regret. Lemon cake is marvelous....do have it.More

Best Americano I've had in a long time! We waited for about 20 minutes to order on our first day in Old Montreal, but the end result was fantastic! Returned again on the last day and had croissant and biscotti. What a delight. Easily the...best spot for caffeine in Old Montreal.More

Our food tour guide up in Mile End recommended this place. We went to the branch down in old town. The affogato was super. The americano had very little flavor. The server was super nice. Ambience great with limited seating.

Great spot! Coffee delicious like in Roma, European atmosphere. 100% recommended. Ask for café latte or afogato ice cream.
