Les échecs en plein air/Chess outside

Outdoor chess for the summer is beginning next weekend at the Atwater Market. Time is from 11am-4pm, and runs every weekend throughout the next few months. Boards are available. It is located next to the canal, behind the ice cream building.

Could someone advise me a place (indoor as I guess this one will soon finish?) to play chess? Not a club with a member card and tournaments, but maybe a place where people gather to play friendly?
I'm a beginner and would like to practice a bit with some other players.

Thanks :)

There is Cafe Pi on St. Laurent, and the Concordia Chess Club will be starting again in September (chess.concordia.ca). It is very relaxed, and open to beginners. I think there are a few weeks left at the Atwater market outdoors as well.
