Recently opened in August of this year, Buck 15 is a must-go if you’re in the Atwater market neighbourhood. The menu is concise with a variety of baked goods to compliment their great roast, Spyhouse. The service is warm, friendly and efficient (they use Square as a method of payment). Finally, those who are more sustainability-conscious will be happy to know they also use Boxed Water.
UPDATE 3/21/2016: After several renovations, Buck 15 has really grown in terms of their branding, their brunch menu, and their clientele. They have added a beautiful mural in the alleyway next to their shop (perfect for summer), they hired an innovative chef to create delicious and aesthetically pleasing brunch items, and their friendly service has garnered a loyal following. Whereas previously I can see laptop work as a possibility depending on the hour of the day, I would now discourage studying/working at Buck 15 as is it often very busy. The place has transformed into a very social environment and considering the size of the shop, it would be polite to respect the turnover. Lastly, their usual Minneapolis-based Spyhouse beans are now replaced with a growing Ontario roaster, de Mello Palheta Coffee, which I support fully. Other Montreal coffee shops are slowly integrating this roaster into their coffee rotations, as mentioned in my Noble Cafe post, and it will only be more popular from here on. If you’re in the downtown area, this is a must stop.
