I live here so I know! Great stop off place. Noon hour has live entertainment on the CBC Stage next door. Grass roof makes for good environmental feeling.

JJ Bean , if you are in the area of the CBC Radio Canada building you should try this coffee stand. Great coffee, cappuccino , expresso and cold drinks. Staff is knowledgable of the area and friendly.
