This cheery Java U is part of a local cafe chain that got its start in 1996 at Concordia University. College students and families make up most of the clientele at this particular outlet, which is a buttoned-up venue with friendly, laid-back staff. Options include quiches, salads, sandwich wraps, croissants, ice cream from local purveyor Bilboquet, and St-Ambroise beer, brewed at Montréal’s own Brasserie McAuslan. Coffee options include espresso “con panna,” which is espresso with whipped cream.
