Please, spread the word!
To All Aspiring Cafe Owners:
You may or may not have noticed that our next door neighbour, La CroissanterieÂ Linda (1909 Ste. Catherine W), has gone out of business. Turns out that the previous owners have decided to retire from the bistro life. It was indeed open for a very, very long time; last I checked, 2+ decades. For the longest time, Montrealers loved this gem of a spot for their friendly service, unpretentious atmosphere, delicious (and cheap!) food… Click the link attached to their name above to see how much this place was loved by the city.
Us Argonauts have decided to put forward an online solicitation for all potential entrepreneurs of Montreal to please consider taking on this location, with its established customer base, an Art Deco interior (old copper ceiling, antique Singer sewing table-frames as tables, a full basement) and trustworthy location. The most information we can provide is the following:
- $5000/month for rent
- $1600 in annual municipal taxes
- with contact info… 514-899-8574
It’s in our best interest to try and encourage innovative people to take the plunge for this business and location. With more and more bars and restaurant sprouting up along our strip, we want to keep locales for love and leisure around us… that, and one less-crowded coffee house to use the internet in while you nurse one americano for 2 to 3 hours.
Spread the word! Help keep our corner of Ste. Catherine awesome!
Again, contact info… 514-899-8574
1909 Ste. Catherine West
…And for any of you who miss the place and want one last thing to remember them by, check out this recording on the Montreal Sound Map, or drop by the shop for a post-it to put up on their window!
