Just a couple cappuccinos, but they were proper cappuccinos. And the man being the counter (owner?) knows proper foam! This ain't no rubber-stamp coffee shop.

Good food and great service. Great hot chocolate and great coffee. Family owned. Good people. Good prices would rather come here rather then a Starbucks. Free wifi.

Hi John, this is Delphine & Michael from Toronto. I would like to send a BIG thank you for your wonderful service. As I am writing this, I am sitting in my office and having a croissant that we brought back yesterday, and it still tastes amazing!! We will definitely drop by again next time we visit Montreal. Merry Christmas... More

Sometimes, service makes the difference. The service here was very good and welcoming. The breakfast sandwiches were fine but not outstanding, but we had a better time having breakfast here because we were greeted and treated like a friend.

I live in old Montréal and have take away breakfast every day. Out of all the breakfast cafées in Old Montreal, Espace was definitely the best and I go there every day. The quality of both coffee and breakfast options is very good. You have to try the Helsinki bread! It is not (yet) on the menu, so you'll have... More

We are sitting here as we write this, our second lunch at Espace after only four days in Montreal. Excellent food, very nice, warm staff. We made a point to come back after our first meal. Delicious soup, bagels, wraps, cappuccino. Ignore the (few) negative reviews by some ignoramuses. This place is a gem!

If you are looking for a local joint where people know your name and remember how you like your coffee .... don't think twice! Maybe it's cause I'm originally from NYC..This is the kinda place where they go out of their way to make it how you like it!

The mocha latte is to die for, made with his own chocolate mixture. The croissants and breakfast sandwiches are equally as wonderful. Thanks!

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
