My husband and I stumbled across this adorable little cafe while walking through Montreal. We weren’t hungry so we just ordered cappuccinos. I loved that they had almond milk as I’m vegan. The decor was adorable! The food looked great and they serve brunch and...More

Very nice cozy spot near metro Berri-UQAM. It’s a quiet place, you can easily find a space during lunch time. The food is good and they have a nice variety of Khusmi tea and pastries. They seem to change their menu from time to time....More

The breakfast sandwich is unusually tasty - grilled hot, crispy on the outside with real melted cheddar and fresh bean sprouts. They were happy to prepare it without meat for me, I went back twice in one week for a solo meal while writing postcards....More

My friend had the breakfast sandwich and I had the croquette de jambon. Both great meals together with lavender coffee and a chocolate croissant. Lovely sweet treats to take with you. Nice place to spend time. Would definitely return!

The food options are ok - went there for lunch and had soup. The pastries were sweet. It's a really great place for a date given the setting.

For all those who like pastry and prefer a quiet, cosey and cute setting, this may be the place for you. Had a Matcha Cheescake and a Lavender Latte, both at its best.

As the owner grew up in Japan, we tried the matcha scones - perfect taste. As breakfast dessert, we shared the chocolate bread pudding - wauw. Beverages were also fantastic, a chocolate tea and a masala tea.

The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd
the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs
for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an
open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished
buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special
homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and
cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst
Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party
