My friend had the breakfast sandwich and I had the croquette de jambon. Both great meals together with lavender coffee and a chocolate croissant. Lovely sweet treats to take with you. Nice place to spend time. Would definitely return!

The food options are ok - went there for lunch and had soup. The pastries were sweet. It's a really great place for a date given the setting.

For all those who like pastry and prefer a quiet, cosey and cute setting, this may be the place for you. Had a Matcha Cheescake and a Lavender Latte, both at its best.

As the owner grew up in Japan, we tried the matcha scones - perfect taste. As breakfast dessert, we shared the chocolate bread pudding - wauw. Beverages were also fantastic, a chocolate tea and a masala tea.

Tried their coffee and had a very tasty chef's salad! The place is an ideal location for a light snack for someone who is a vegetarian. The interior is very welcoming and the hipster staff is totally awesome!

This place was wonderful. Beautifully decorated, very friendly, the pastries are amazing and the coffee was some of the best we've had. And the breakfast sandwiches! We came back the next day for a repeat.

The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd
the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs
for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an
open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished
buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special
homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and
cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst
Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party
