5 places to enjoy a 'Cup of Joe' in Montreal

A 'miniature 3-ounce creamy latte' anyone? Forget all you know about coffee including long-blacks and flat-whites. The Canadians like to keep things simple and stick to 'double-doubles' and 'triple-triples'.

A ‘miniature 3-ounce creamy latte’ anyone? Forget all you know about coffee including long-blacks and flat-whites. The Canadians like to keep things simple and stick to ‘double-doubles’ and ‘triple-triples’.

When in Canada there’s no need to complicate things simply ask for a ‘Double Double’ which is a coffee with two sugars and two shots of milk or a ‘Triple Triple’ which the name suggests is three sugars and three shots of milk.

And if that isn’t sweet enough for you the popular ‘Spiced Pumpkin Latte’ is appearing on most coffee shop menus around Thanksgiving.

Montreal is beaming with great independent coffee shops and we’ve rounded up the top five places to enjoy a hot cuppa in this trendy European influenced city.

Café Myriade, known for their exquisite coffee at their two popular locations, one in the Mile End and the other near Concordia University have recently opened their newest and coolest location yet.

Teaming up with Club Monaco, Café Myriade Monaco is located directly inside the trendy shop on Sainte-Catherine Street.  Their new location brings the Montreal café scene to a whole new level, allowing Montrealers to be served coffee by professionally trained baristas while shopping.

 

2. Café Parvis

This gem of a café has your taste bud needs covered. With a savory and fairly priced menu to go perfectly with a fresh latte, your tiny taste buddies will undoubtedly be thanking you.

This trendy spot is great for catching up with friends  and enjoying a cup of coffee on their outdoor terrace in the summer. In the midst of the Montreal traffic scene, their peaceful and cozy terrace will give you the break you need.

 

3. Kafein Café Bar

Kafein Café Bar is the perfect spot for friends to get together during the day or evening. Their delicious Kafein sure Glace or Espresso Strawberry Honey Smoothie is the perfect day-time refreshment.

Turn it up a notch with an espresso to keep you pumped for a late night in the lower floor lounge area. You can be entertained by a DJ, Jazz night or even poetry and art events while sipping your coffee.

 

4. Pikolo Espresso Bar

3418 Park Avenue Montreal, QC

Basically, Pikolo is the definition of a real good coffee. All of their coffees being single origin, you can be sure that it is, in a sense, unique.

The place itself is very simple and quaint. Everything is either homemade or locally produced which just makes it that much better! Do not walk, run! It is well worth the jog… and coffee.

 

5. Cafe Plume

 123 Mont-Royal Ouest, Montreal, Qc

Nestled on the Plateau Mont-Royal, Café Plume is a very clean and eye appealing coffee shop. With a prime location, they offer mouthwatering espressos and lattes which just so happens to be their specialties. 

Obviously, like most things that are situated on the plateau, there is something very unique about this place. On the brick walls, you can find amazing art pieces made by various local Montreal artists.
