Cafe Laval They roast their own beans & pull a nice espresso. Simple, minimal interior, & lovely owners.
Café Pi Fair trade & organic coffee, & lots of chess.
Cafe Névé Great tucked away-ish spot with comfortably rustic & hip decor, delicious pastries & lovely coffee & espresso. Love.
Replika Good espresso & light & delicious fare.
Café Melbourne They pull a sweet espresso & have tasty small bites. Tiny outdoor patio on the street is a lovely little haven to duck into & soak up some sun with coffee.
Le Moineau Masqué Sweet & hip little spot with a lovely outdoor patio. Very nice espresso, & wonderful french pastries.
Le Couteau Artisanal coffee (good!) & goodies. Nouveau-shaker-esque interior.
Aux Deux Marie & Brulerie St. Denis Local coffee roasters that sell beans & serve drip coffee & espresso drinks, both with locations on St. Denis. Not mind-blowing, but decent, consistent coffee. A café au lait served in a traditional bowl is recommended!
Café Olimpico Best for-real Italian espresso in town; outdoor seating.
Cafe Le Falco Tucked away on a back street, delicious Siphon coffee in a beautiful industrial-arts setting
Pikolo Espresso Bar These people really know what they're doing. GO.
