Calling all residents who have yet to finish exams and are still studying for finals!

Even though the evo library is the best place to read and work, we understand that changing up the setting may be helpful when revising – for example by enjoying a good coffee nearby.

We can imagine that it is rather annoying to see all your friends and neighbors already on holidays while you’re stuck in Montreal as the last one still having to complete exams.

 Therefore, we have some suggestions for you – 5 coffee spots where you can revise (when it rains outside) and 5 spots outside to revise and soak up the sun (when the weather is nice).



  • Café Myriade

If you are a coffee addict, this is the place for you! Myriade’s coffees are roasted with care and are therefore of high quality. You should also try their assortment of pastries and viennoiseries as they come from local, independent bakeries.

Opening hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 08:00-19:00 Thursday, Friday 08:00-21:00 Saturday 10:00-19:00 Sunday 11:00-18:00

  • Mont Royal

The most classic of the classics! You can either do a run to the highest point to de-stress and meditate, or lay down on the fields at the bottom to read a book.
