MONTREAL - It hasn't been an easy ride for April Defalco and Stacey Bebbington since opening their kid-friendly cafe in 2010.
Six months after launching, La Tasse Gamine suffered flooding damage from a broken water main in front of their shop. They were forced to close for six weeks of repairs.
Then, last summer, after the business above their own was the target of an arson attack, the cafe was once again forced to shut its doors. The renovations — and some insurance wrangling —took eight months.
