Any good Cafes in Montreal?
for hanging out and studying.
The location must be in downtown Montreal, between MetCalfe and Guy, no further (and sherbrooke and stcatherine).
Im on a tight budget, so no pricy cafes, a couple of bucks will do it, especially if i want to hang out there basically everyday.
Thanks alot i appreciate it.
P.S is there by any chance a cafe close to cafe nervosa (the cafe form Frasier), thnx again.
You're fortunate that probably the best cafe (in terms of coffee) is within that rather small area of the city. Cafe Myriade on Mackay can't be beat. Its prices are standard: 2.50 espresso, about the same for brewed coffees. 3.50-4 for caps and lattes. The only issue is that its small and increasingly busy, so finding a table can be tricky in the afternoon... also its not exactly quiet. There's not much else I'd recommend within the area, and I can't think of anything particularly similar to Nervosa..
Myriade definitely has great coffee, but I'd personally feel bad spending 4 bucks and taking up a table in that tiny space for hours to study, especially for the next 6 months as the terrace will be closed. It's a small business that needs quick turnover...it's not a huge place with a thousand locations like Starbucks or Second Cup. If you want to take up a table for a while, sacrifice better coffee and just go to run of the mill chains. When you want to enjoy a good coffee, go to Myriade.
Agreed about Myriade - but people do sit there for a few hours. I have, though I drink a lot of coffee, I don't just nurse one for a few hours. Bigger drawback is the noise-level? I still like it.
On Bishop you'll find Kafein (kafein.ca) - more spacious than Myriade, coffee prices about the same, though their sandwiches are pricey (but good). Crowded during lunch time. They serve Saint Henri coffee.
