Hi gang,

I'm seeking recommendations for good cafes or tea lounges near PdA, preferably non-chain but if it's cozy a chain will be fine. Must be open weekends. I'll go as far as lower St-Laurent (below Pins to Chinatown) for the right place.

I know about Pikolo, Mundo cafe, Chai tea lounge on Parc, but I'm not too fond of those places because they're used as study lounges by student squatters & the coziness of seating (and availability thereof) mostly reflects that, just like most chain places. I go to cafes for dates, so it needs to have some atmosphere, not eerie silence, and softer light helps too.

Places I like: Kahwa on Mont-Royal, Camellia Sinensis on Bishop, Cafe Pi on St-Laurent, Kafein on Bishop (downstairs).

Anything like that around PdA, McGill ghetto, or lower Main?

p.s. If more places banned laptops & by extension their squatting users like Camellia Sinensis and (possibly unofficially) Cafe Pi, they would get my business. I'm not alone, am I?
