Café Perko



I discovered another cute café with my friend C in Villeray called Café Perko. This is literally the perfect study spot!!

The owner opened this café because when she was a law student, she spent all of her time studying in coffee shops. She found herself either at a big chain coffee shop with expensive and terrible coffee, or small independent coffee shops where the coffee was great but the space was small, and the hours were not conducive to night owls. That's where the idea of Perko was born: a big enough coffee shop, open late, with good wifi and most importantly good coffee and good food at reasonable prices!

Perko offers everything from coffee and pastries to salads and sandwiches. They even have chargers that they can lend you if you forget yours - free of charge! One of the coolest perks about this café is their printing corner. They offer notepads, paper, pens, and envelopes! Finally, they even have a conference room with a large TV available for rent by the hour.

I absolutely loved the cozy and comfy vibe here, not to mention the motivation I felt being surrounded by so many focused students that were plugged in and working away! I suspect you need to come early if you want a table to work on because it was was packed when we got there on Saturday afternoon! Nevertheless, we loved our coffee and were so glad we discovered this spot.
