We stopped here for coffee while walking around this area. My wife ordered the banana nut muffin and I had the blueberry muffin that we split. Both were very good. The... More

This is a popular cafe, well-located by a subway entrance. Prices are competitive and coffee quality is good. It's even a favorite place to hold a business meeting with one of the people I work with!

My family and I were on March break visiting montreal and this place happened to be in walking distance of our hotel. It was actually very pleasant, good quality drinks (I didn't try any food or pastries) but options were a nice change from the typical coffee chains. Staff was friendly and free WiFi is a plus. I can see... More

Good quality coffee and food make this a much better place to have lunch than the usual chains. It is really refreshing to see this level of freshness and quality. Good staff and location. Really recommend it for a visit.

Just had an afternoon coffee and a delicious vanilla/strawberry ice cream while enjoying free wifi at Java U. Very friendly cafe centrally located for everyone, including students who live all around this area. Will definitely return - good prices too!

I tried the Maple Coffee at Java U. It was just warm (not hot enough). The coffee shop itself was nicely decorated with comfy seats and magazines.

Great place for a coffee in Montreal and always consistently great! Last time I was there, their ice machine was broken and it was very hot. They went and grabbed ice because my daughter wanted a "jice", a specialty.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
