Café news: not the first, one of the 50

T’cha Dunlevy goes on here about how Cinéma Moderne is the first café bar movie theatre in Montreal which makes me wonder where I was having coffee on the Main years ago – can’t have been in the Cinéma Parallèle’s Café Méliès – not the “new” one but the old one, further up the street, can it? Not if Dunlevy is unaware it ever existed.

In other café news, it was reported last week that the Olimpico made the Telegraph UK’s list of fifty greatest cafés on Earth. It’s in some hefty company here, magnificent old establishments in places like Naples and Porto and Prague.
