This café is a well-known local hangout in the residential part of the Villeray neighborhood. You find many locals stopping by this friendly place to grab a coffee and sit on one of the communal benches with friends, family and even dogs!
The service is no-fuss and always comes with a smile. The atmosphere is laid back and chill. I’ve come here many times to catch up with friends or catch up on work! They offer the usual list desired by coffee lovers. I usually grab my oh-so-favorite cortado or cappuccino here, but they also have cold coffees and chocolate milk. Furthermore, they have a small variety of snacks such as cookies and banana breads.
It gets pretty busy on the weekend but with the spring in full bloom in Montreal, the tables are set up outside, inviting us to sit in the warm sun while sipping our coffees. I enjoy taking a walk around the pretty neighborhood and visiting some of the small local stores located within a few minutes from the café.
Note: there is a second café location at 405 Jarry St. East.
