Open every day from 7 am to midnight, Café Olimpico is a popular spot for great Italian coffee and a Montréal landmark. Families, hipsters, and business people head here in the morning before work or school, and the place really gets jammed on weekend mornings, though it's large enough to accommodate a crowd. The line at the bar to order your drink may be long but the baristas know their craft and the clink of spoons in saucers and the grinding of the espresso machine
is welcoming background music for anyone who takes coffee seriously. This is a great place to get a real feel for Montréal.
