Considering the coffee shop opened in late 2013, I genuinely think that Station W is not talked about enough. Being a gourmand, I’m surprised I’ve only visited this weekend. The service was great because even though I was completely lost on how to order as a first timer, the cashier was extremely friendly and helpful. The service was also really quick considering we visited during a rush, and each barista/server served us with a smile and a polite apology for the ‘wait’. With excellent service, good coffee and a great selection of menu, Station W is a well rounded coffee shop located in Verdun.
The cappuccino was decent but the cold brew they served was a pleasant surprise. I’m not an expert on cold brews but the drink was so clean, refreshing with great floral notes, I knew that I was inspired enough to start going into a cold brew phase (so expect less latte art in my posts soon).
I didn’t get to try any of their homemade baked goods but I did get to taste the delicious grilled cheese. They have many flavours and I went for the brie, mushrooms and bacon. You can also choose to get a side salad either half-half for two types or a full portion of one type of salad. Overall, the plate was very easy to eat; I did not feel overwhelmingly full afterwards nor was I guilty for the carbs. The after feeling remained light and fresh, like my cold brew.
Last point worth mentioning is that Station W has a great mix of crowd. There were students, young adults, colleagues, solos, and family. That really stuck with me because that’s when I realized Station W does not try to be anything more than it is. Their approach is simple and focused: good coffee served with care, local fresh products and homemade goods.
