I am coning to Montreal tomorrow for the weekend and was very disappointed to hear that my favorite place for breakfast and coffee has had had a fire on Sherbrooke Street and is closed. We are staying at the De La Montagne hotel and need a simlar recommendation to replace it and one that we can walk to. Thanks.
If you go a few blocks west, you can get the best coffee in the city at Myriade. Otherwise, there is a JavaU on Stanley, and an MB& Co right next door to it. And there's always Vasco da Gama on Peel - I am guessing they have croissants and coffee in the mornings, although I could be wrong, but considering they open at 7 am, it's a strong possibility.
