For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m a caffeine addict. I love discovering new coffee shops. I guess I’m easily amused by this lol.. There are a few that I visit more than others which is why I like to keep you guys updated on my whereabouts. Below are the ones that I have been going to lately.

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 🙂

#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 😛
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 😛
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.

#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..

#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 🙂 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
