Iconic 24-Hour Café Milano Is Now Serving Coffee and Lobster Tails in Laval

It’s the first expansion for the nearly 50-year-old St-Léonard Italian café

After 48 years of pulling espresso shots and putting together paninis, notable St-Léonard institution Café Milano has expanded for the first time.

Its new location opened this week in Laval, on St-Martin to the west of Centropolis.

Owner Marco Paranzino (the son of founder Matteo Paranzino) is keeping things the same as the Jarry Street East original. The menu is adorned with all the classics: Italian-style espresso, steak, capicollo, or meatball sandwiches, and classic Italian sweets such as lobster tails with Nutella, biscotti, and cannoli.

The only minor difference is that it won’t be open 24 hours, although it’s not far off, with service starting early in the morning and running through midnight daily, and later on weekends.

There’s no shortage of space, either — the new café seats 110 (and should have a terrasse in summer).

STATUS — Café Milano is open at 3352 Boulevard St-Martin West from 6 a.m. to midnight Sunday to Thursday and 6 a.m. to 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
