CAFÉ SOUFFLÉ: Awesome new (/ inexpensive) cafe on Marianne and St. Urbain

Hey all,

For anyone who hasn't been there yet, there is an awesome (and very inexpensive) cafe that just opened up on Marieanne and St. Urbain (south-west corner).

Here's a quick list of the great things I've tried:

Queen Elizabeth (small cakes / muffins): These things are to die for, they are filled with homemade toffee (or maybe caramel), have crunchy coconut on top and are sweetened with dates. They also make new / interesting muffins each day...some of my favorites are the poppyseed pear and the strawberry white chocolate.

Rutabaga / Beet / Israeli Couscous salad : You can order each salad separate or mix them up but they give you a giant portion for only 5 dollars...I never knew Rutabaga could taste so good.

Bread of the day (Zucchini, Banana Cumin, or Carrot): The banana bread is awesome, the cumin gives it a really unique flavor that you won't find elsewhere.

Other than that, they have an assortment of Panini that look quite good. I've only tasted the vege-pate one but it was delectable.

You can tell I go to this place a lot (hey, I only live a few blocks away!). But seriously, it's like the Navarino's of the plateau, only better!

Check it out if your passing by, and for those of you in Parc Jean-Mance or Mont-Royal this weekend, they make homemade ice-cream as well.

P.S. The coffee rocks too (1.50 and they'll give free refills if you're nice).
