Greek food and large group gatherings have become a vital part of my food adventures in Montreal. Ever since I’ve been to my first real Greek restaurant in September of 2011, I’ve been looking forward to every and each opportunity I could get. Most of those Greek outings, even if they were organized by me, came from the head of someone else. This would be the first time that I would be the one to choose the Greek restaurant. The pressure was going to be on my head.

Last Thursday night, after our tremendous experience at Vieux-Port Steakhouse, my colleagues and I looked for something to put it over the top. We actually walked down Saint-Paul street towards the west. We went by a number of places that didn’t have exactly what we wanted. We ever took a turn towards the Old Port where IglooFest was still raging on. We walked east on De La Commune, where we made our way up back to Saint-Paul. All that to say that we found ourselves right outside Montreal Poutine. Now, we just had a full course meal and we’re only looking for a place for coffee. When I saw where we were, I had other plans in mind.

You must be wondering why on Earth is he doing a fifth post on McDonald’s, despite the fact that he tried to avoid the fast food giant with a vengeance. Well, on this Monday morning, a start to another long week at the place of increasing workloads, I found myself having a few minutes to kill. First of all, I have to give big time kudos to my bus driver for getting me downtown something like 8 minutes ahead of schedule, a whopping 17 minutes from home, across the nearly broken down Champlain Bridge, to the middle of the core of Montreal. Normally, it takes about 25 minutes.
