Tommy Cafe

As you all know, I’m a caffeine addict. I really enjoy visiting great coffee shops that aren’t your regular cup of Starbucks – ok ok…I do love myself a cup of Starbucks but you get what I’m saying right? Tommy opened up not too long ago and it’s become quite the popular coffee hang out spot due to it’s gorgeous interior decor. It reminds me of a¬†“museum coffee shop”. The ceilings are sky high and have vines hanging from them.

Coffee Shops of the Moment

Hi guys! I realized that I haven’t posted any food related posts lately but have been going to coffee shops on the daily (one of my hobbies obviously).Therefore, I’ve decided to feature the coffee shops that I’ve been going to this fall season ūüôā¬†
(photo above taken at Cafe Myriade inside of Club Monaco)
#1. MELK
I love this little gem! I’ve visited their newest location on Stanley quite a few times, more than the one they have on Monkland because I often shop or have events downtown ūüėõ
I usually alternate between lattes or chai. The above picture shows MELK’s iced chai latte which was SO good! I’m a sucker for a yummy chai latte and this one was right up there, not too sweet, very cinnamon-y. I finished it so fast. I’ve also had their regular lattes which were equally as good.

#2. Starbucks
Ok, so this one counts as a year-round spot ūüėõ
My go-to whenever I’m rushing to get to work or on-the-go and don’t have time to visit a “hipster” coffee shop. I usually opt for their chai lattes, flat whites or soy lattes but ever since I got back from LA, I discovered that they serve Dirty Chai Lattes. It’s part of their secret menu items!! Ever since I found that secret out, I’ve been hooked because there aren’t many coffee shops over here that serve dirty chai’s. I prefer having them iced. For more secret menu items at Starbucks, download the app! (shhhh)
#3. Cafe Larue & Fils
Recently discovered their coffee shop on De Castelnau street, they have a really good barista and their coffee is top notch. I always know my latte is made perfectly whenever I don’t have to add any sugar to it and it’s velvety smooth. Whenever it’s too bitter, it’s not a good coffee for me. Larue has a second location on Jarry as well. It’s such a cute spot and they have a big terrasse area as well.

#4. San Gennaro
Ok so aside from being a caffeine addict, I’m also a pizza¬†connoisseur. What better combination than serving coffee and pizza all day right!?¬†
The photo above shows my prosciutto and cauliflower pizza AND the best calzone pizza I’ve ever had! The pizza was good but the calzone was the real deal! I split mine with my friend but after just 1 bite, I swear I could have ate the whole thing to myself…it was that good! I also had¬†crema di caffe (beverage shown above) which is like a latte, only creamier. It tasted like an iced cappuccino mixed with gelato, it was heavenly.
69 Rue Saint Zotique E, Montréal, QC H2S 1K7
#5. Regine Cafe
I know this place is a brunch spot but their coffee is great so I had to give it a shout-out!
Known for their amazing brunches, Regine is my ultimate fave spot. There isn’t one plate on the menu that isn’t delicious.The latte shown above is their “Bowl” sized coffee. Although, beware of their crazy line-ups..
1840 Rue Beaubien E, Montréal, QC H2G 1L6
#6. Cafe Myriade – Dominion Square
I’ve been coming to this place a little too much lately, but I’m ok with it cause it’s located inside Club Monaco ūüôā I love everything here from the decor to the staff but most importantly their coffee is really yummy! I also love the fact that my pictures get featured on their business cards <3

Myriade coffee shop

We all love ourselves a great cup of coffee and Caf√©¬†Myriade makes one of the best coffees in town (in my opinion). After the closing of Club Monaco in Les Cours Mont-Royal, they’ve re-opened right¬†across¬†the street on Ste-Catherine St.W. The upscale store¬†resembles their flagship store in New York on Fifth Ave. You can find Caf√© Myriade downstairs where the men’s section is located.
All of Club Monaco is beautifully decorated in creamy pearl whites which makes the store very bright and lively. Even Myriade consist of the same colour schemes. It’s the perfect shopping break spot! They even have books on display for sale inside the coffee shop.
Aside from serving coffee, they also serve little baked goods to accompany your beverage such as cookies, croissants, brioches etc. They also serve baguettes from Hof Kelsten and little goodies on display to take home (Honey, jam, granola, oils) from Patisserie Rhubarbe and Société-Orignal.

Everything in this 2 story boutique is perfection. Clearly the interior decorator and visual merchandiser know what they are doing. If you haven’t already checked out the new Club Monaco, mark it down on your to-do list!¬†
