At this bustling, veteran café, city dwellers of all sorts—struggling writers, musicians, street-smart bohemians, bureaucrats, businessmen, and busy moms and dads—enjoy Wi-Fi and some of the city's best coffee, croque-monsieurs (open-face French-bread sandwiches with ham, tomato, and broiled cheese), gazpacho, chili, tuna sandwiches, and soups. Good, modestly priced beer and wine are also served. Some patrons start their day here with croissants and coffee at 8 am and then return shortly before the place closes at 10 pm.

This place was a disappointment. Went for breakfast and had some talentless hack make us the worst cappucinos we ever drank. You know you're in trouble when there is no brown ring around the edge of your cup...no crema. No crema means badly pulled espresso. She also scalded the milk which burnt our tongues. The croissant ham and cheese thing we ordered was uninspiring and only the dijon made it taste like anything. Did not see any locals here, only
other tourists. Place is run down and dirty around the edges. Overpriced for what it is. BTW, good coffee is just down the hill at les Cafés du Soleil on St-Paul. They also have better food.
