If you have been looking for a real proper and delicious coffee look no further- Cafe San Simeon is the place. Really tasty Italian coffee is served here, in little Italy area. At a very attractive price! (Latte 2,75) Small cosy place a la italian, and adorable staff. Special thanks to Jo (Joseph) for being so sweet and kind!!!

Great place for an excellent espresso, and flaky pastry for an excellent start to the day. It's busy, noisy, crowded and lots of fun.

I came here twice. First during the weekend during F1 Grand Prix when the whole Boulevard St-Laurent is celebrating the Mural festival from Sherbrooke street up to Mont-Royal Avenue. In Little Italy they have a 4 day F1 celebration where the street is closed down to traffic between Jean Talon (north) down to I think Beaulieu? With amazing shiny gas... More

There isn't much variety in flavors, and it costs C$5.00 for a small cup, but this stuff is the real deal! Creamy and perfectly textured. It is obvious that the place is run by Italians, in the absolute best way! It's on my list to come back for coffee!

I come to Montreal once a year and I always make several pilgrimages to San Simeon. A bus, metro and short walk, delivers me to the best cappuccino and almond croissant in the city. This is place where old timers pull a chair out on the sidewalk to discuss the latest soccer match. Italian blends with French and I feel... More

I cant tell you enough of this place. I go there whenever I am in the area. They seriously make the best latte, cappuccino, cold coffee, espresso and machiato. The coffee and foam/froth is like velvet. They also have a pastry stuffed with nutella. Oh my goodness is it ever delicious. The place is not big but cozy. Parking is... More

Best place for a latté, very good croissant in the morning, staff is very friendly. Personally, i go there alone if close-by or with friends after diner, in addition to every Saturday morning.

Neighbourhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
