In the heart of the Plateau there is this small coffee I enjoy. It has a nice terrace, worth mentionning in the summer (sadly Montreal's winter is a bit too intense to enjoy the said terrace with 30 inches of snow - although you can borrow nice blankets for the autumn). On a Saturday afternoon, it is crowded with MacAirPeople enjoying their third wave coffee and probably not working so hard (I haven't checked personally all of them but at least 2 weren't but one was). This means we have to share table (the place is quite small, there are 3 tables) that are unfortunately pretty nice but not comfortable for people with long legs, and the chairs are a bit too low - I guess I couldn't work there for more than 1 hour. I think it's good to mention that there is a large number of plugs in the wall, allowing a decent number of laptops even if the place isn't so large. Decoration is typical, empty pots, lanterns, ferns, old wooden tables and chairs, bricks, lightbulbs falling from the (high) ceiling, and a grey couch. The music (think more "Acoustic Session" by Jack White rather than Slayer's "Angel of Death") is not so loud, but blasted from a not so good "plug your iPhone"-speaker, and you would need earplugs to get some silence due to the number of customers talking (aha! I knew they weren't working!). I couldn't get clear shots because I hate taking picture of people I don't know without asking them and since I don't like to talk to people this explains that. Opening hours are like 830:1900 so pretty good. The coffee is made by 49th Parallel and the three double espressos I had were quite good. The staff is nice indeed, at least to me, that means minimal interaction: coffee, WiFi password, coffee, thanks bye. I take my coffee blacker than the blackest black times infinity so I can't really say anything about the milks they have. The network speed is honestly low even for Québec standards (tested at 4.81/0.77 Mbps with a 13ms ping), but we were at least 5 computers and 3 iPhones. Even though. As a conclusion, I would definitively recommand this place as it is one of the most enjoyable in Montreal, but keep in mind what I said about the chairs and table - I guess it's not a problem if you're not too tall but it gets uncomfortable after a bit of time, so : good coffee place, not so good working place.
