Station 210 is a boutique café located in the old fire station of St-André-d'Argenteuil, in the Lower Laurentians, halfway between Montreal and Ottawa. The name refers to the building and its former use. The choice of ‘Station’ was inspired by the bilingualism in the region.
Station 210 is a shop and a café. You can come for a cappuccino or some of our special treats. Most of the products are local, sustainable, and environmentally friendly. You can find anything from toothbrushes to fine stationery, and kitchen accessories to local artisanal products. The St-André-d'Argenteuil region is extremely rich in local products!

It's impossible to say. It’s too hard to choose, but there is definitely something for everyone.
The business just opened recently, so we can't really see any trends in the clientele. That being said, we saw locals who were interested in seeing the transformed fire station. Apparently, there are plenty of interesting stories to be shared about the place. We see tourists, motorcyclists, and cyclists, who want to enjoy a quieter road and a picturesque view. With a mostly local crowd, we’re happy to let them know who we are and what we do, because they're the ones who will bring our fine products to their village.
St-André-d’Argenteuil is located in the Lower Laurentians. Although not as touristy as the well-known Upper Laurentians, where Mont Tremblant is located, the region is just as beautiful and interesting. Between Montreal and Ottawa, 30 minutes from Oka, it's the perfect spot for tourists on two wheels, with very scenic routes and a charming village. The owners of Station 210 want to see their establishment become a travel destination in itself, a reason to visit their village!

One of the questions that coffee experts probably hear the most is:“What’s the difference between Arabica and Robusta?” The two types of coffee plants are at opposite ends of the spectrum, and by blending the two together, we can achieve the best of both worlds.
