This place has to be one of the best coffees in Montreal. They only serve esspressos and its derivates (lattes, cappucinos, machiatto). It is one of my top picks for coffee, period.
I only take the espresso, and it comes with a rich 'crema', thick and golden, rich and savoury. Every single time, perfection.
I have never experienced a burnt espresso in this place.
For the cappuccinos, lattes, machiatto and other coffee drinks they use only whole milk, so dieters beware! Another thing you might wanna watch out for is the sugar, altough they ask, if your not quick enough to stop them you'll end up with a spoonful of sugar in your drink. Its somewhat part of the deal.
The cafe itself is a sports bar, with big plasmas playing soccer all over, and posters of the Azzuri plastered all over the walls. They serve random Italian desserts such as biscotti and tiramisu, but they are generic, same biscotti you can get a grocery store and same tiramisu cup you might find in a random desert isle. The spotlight is on coffee.
Every coffee drinker in Montreal knows and appreciates Olympico, for a reason.
