Writing and eating in Montreal
- noteon Jan 5, 2007 06:32 PM
I'm taking a weeklong working trip to Montreal in a couple of weeks, staying near Rue St-Denis and Rue Sherbrooke Est.
Any suggestions for either good cafes (for writing) or good restaurants (for writing off)?
For a cafe/bar where there're always a few laptops open, try Else's at 156 Roy Est.
If you want more minimal sleak modern cafe, and again lots of open laptops, try Laika at 4040 St Laurent.
Both have wireless, I believe, and both have decent espressos and small menu.
The Reservoir (9 Duluth, corner of St-Laurent)is just across the street from Laika and is much better in terms of ambiance (less be-seen) and has better food for cheaper as well as being an artisanal brewery. One of my favs. They serve lunch on Tuesdays through Fridays and a fabulous brunch on weekends. The rest of the time its fun pub eats with a twist.
