coffee and croissants

  • o

I'm looking for a good place to get a light breakfast, croissants, pastries, french bread and butter type of thing, in Old Montreal. Ideally, someplace that isn't touristy.

  1. OLIVE ET GOURMANDO!!!! Homemade goodies and above average coffee. I'll include the link to their temporary site, for the address etc.

      They use Italian Illy coffee

        Olive et Gourmando is definitively the best place in town. Thes serve good cofee and faboulus sandwiches.

      2. There's a JavaU in Old Montreal, which has decent coffee and pastries (although not in the same league as Olive & Gourmando...)

          JavaU is a good suggestion. There're one of the very few places in Montreal, using Green Mountain Coffee Roasters coffee. I didn't know they have a Old Montreal location.
