Coffice was conceptualized as a hybrid between a coffee shop and an office. The décor is far from being a drab gray office though; Coffice is designed to be the perfect place to get any sort of work done, with a spacious, clean layout and quiet environment. They offer the typical coffee variations as well as a number of soups, salads, sandwiches, and pastries, but they also offer quick photocopying and printing services available in black and white or colour.

Café Plume

Montreal is known for its hip and artistic urban lifestyle, and Café Plume pays homage to that. A cozy café, it regularly changes and displays different local artwork on their walls and serves up some unique coffee blends from the West Coast. An important note is their restriction of only allowing visitors to use laptops at the bar seating at the front of the café during weekends. This allows for the tables to be clutter-free, so if you just need a place to read and work on paper, this café has you in mind.Café Plume Montreal
