Evolo Condos in Montreal
A driver went right through the window of a café on St-Denis near 4 this morning. (One of my neighbourhood cafés, too, such a nice little place.)

Better 4 in the morning than 4 in the afternoon.
Good thing it wasn’t one of those dangerous cyclists that run red lights, that could have really caused some damage. Oh wait…
Sorry to make light of bad news, hope the cafe returns soon and is better than ever.
@Bill Binns: God yes. It’s a small place but there are always half a dozen folks there in the afternoon, it’s a pleasant spot to read the papers and have a good coffee, in a neighbourhood not overly provided with good espresso places. Where the car went in is, alas, where they have their roasting machine, but at least no one was hurt (even the driver wasn’t too badly hurt, according to the story).
I had a scary feeling it was the Café In :(
Isn’t this also the café where a patron was stabbed a couple years ago?
Nope. That was Aux Derniers Humains, at the corner of Bélanger. The Café In is a metro stop north of there, at the corner of Liège.
Truth be told, St-Denis north of Sherbrooke kind of sucks because of the high volume of traffic. This makes it impossible to cross from one side to the other when you want to.
I realize that Laval commuters take precedence over livability (I mean, we’re killing ourselves with smog and pollution so we can keep feeding the car industry), but it still seems like St-Denis could be made a lot better by removing lanes of traffic and widening the sidewalks to accommodate cycle lanes and a wider pedestrian area.
Detroit used to have lots of wide boulevards with shops like this. Now, it just has the wide boulevards.
