Best cafes to study all day at?
Does anyone have any suggestions as to cafes with mainly good coffee and at least passable food where I can go and order a couple menu items and study for hours without feeling bad or being bothered to leave the cafe? Preferably around the Peel X St Catherine downtown area, guy concordia and mcgill area.
Cafe Imagination at Parc and Sherbrooke has a little section you can sit in. Not bad food. Their branch at the YWCA is also a good spot and quieter. Presse Cafe at Milton and Parc is always full of Mcgill students working and studying.Not very quiet tho.
Press Café on Ste-Catherine (south side) between McKay and Bishop
Café Dépot on de Maisonneuve and Mackay
Starbucks and Second Cup in the Faubourg
As far as Plateau is concerned, my place to be is Cafe Neve. Excellent coffee (I think their baristas do competitions; of Art Java and In Gamba pedigree), good food (at least from the benetictine I've had), great tea. Internet, comfortable seating, and lots of outlets for laptops. Given the size of the place, it's hardly ever going to get loud or too crowded.
151 Rue Rachel Est, coin de Bullion. Bicycletterie JR's old location.
