Good places to read/study?
I'll be spending two weeks in Montreal preparing for the California bar exam. I'm looking for good cafes with high quality espresso (and less importantly foods) where I can linger. Must be easily accessible by public transportation. Thanks!
I like Caffe Art Java, just a couple blocks east of the Mont Royal metro. Everyone on this board raves about the espresso there, and I concur. (Don't ever order iced tea, though, they bring you a can of Nestea.) There are lots of plugs for laptops and wireless internet, and a nice view of the street. The only trouble is that, as summer has hit, it can get really crowded and noisy around lunchtime. A few blocks east of it, though, is this little place called Cafe Expressions (I think) where there's also plenty room for laptops. I don't think the coffee is as good, but it's a fine back-up because it doesn't tend to get as crowded.
