My photo shows a plastic knife as for some reason, they had run out of clean metal knives! That was the only quibble I have of the meal.
That day was the day of the annual Christmas parade and sitting by the window to enjoy our hot breakfast meals allowed us to watch the parade in the comfort of the cafe. I think it was about -5 degrees Celsius...and standing at the side of the road to watch the parade did not entice!
I remember that the cafe was open until night as another friend picked up a late night sandwich and salad combination one evening. I did have a taste...and it was very good!
I only visited one branch but there are definitely other Presse Cafes around Montreal.
