503 Place d'Armes
Great coffee and ice cream on Place d'Armes in Old Montreal What a delightful addition to Place d'Armes. Xavier Artisan offers quality house-made ice creams, coffee, soups, salads, sandwiches and pastries. The space has high ceilings and lots of light. There are comfortable chairs and good Wi-Fi. On our first visit we had good coffees (black and a latte) and a very good cinnamon roll pastry. Our second visit was to try out their ice cream. I had a flavorful strawberry ice cream on a crispy cone. High marks! We'll be back to try the soups and salads.
