Quiet coffee/snacks/dessert places near Cineplex that are open late

The other night we wanted to go out for snacks, coffee and dessert after a movie at the Cineplex (at around 9 pm). We couldn't find any place that wasn;t too noisy. (We tried Cacao a couple of blocks east on Ste. Catherine but it was unbelievably noisy--impossible to hear anyone at your table. We don't like Starbucks and go to Pekarna too often). Can anyone recommend anywhere quiet where we can have a snack, dessert and coffee walking distance from the Cineplex?

          how about cine express - it's loud but not terribly so

            Cineplex now, AMC is long gone. Where is Cine Express?

              oh i never noticed the new name :x

              cine express is on st catherine near fort. it's a dive, but might be just what the doctor ordered

      2. Java U at the corner of Wood and Sainte Catherine
        Cafe Sufi Fort & de Maisonneuve
        And if you're willing to venture to Concordia, there's Myriade or down the hill Café Saint-Henri.

          All open after 9 pm on a Saturday?

          1. re: williej

            I'd suggest calling and asking :-)

            Myriade unfortunately closes early in the evening (6ish-7 IIRC), unless of course they've recently changed their hours.

            1. re: EaterBob

              that java u closes pretty early - not sure of the exact time

              1. re: EaterBob

                Kafein on Bishop is also open late on Saturdays

                Despite their listed hours, it does close early sometimes so you should call ahead

              2. There was Un Espresso at 1443 Lambert Closse just north on Ste. Catherines. Haven't been in a while, still shows up on google streetview.

                  Thanks. Never open at night. It's too bad the new residence place on Ste. Catherines has a Starbucks in there instead of something local. But maybe with Adonis opening there as well the area will attract something more local.
