A Roundup of Montréal’s Hottest Coffee Shops
Thinking of upgrading your coffee intake on your next Montréal adventure? You’ve come to the right place. Montréal’s coffee shops have upped the ante on their coffee and food menus, and have become popular hot spots for both locals and tourists alike.
It’s encouraged that your local coffee shop is where you unwind, catch up with friends, or simply do some people-watching.
While Montréal has its share of coffee shops scattered throughout every neighbourhood, they all vary in size, character and culture. Some local favourites are those with the best coffee, tastiest treats and the coziest seating.
Skip the whole coffee on the go and find yourself in a charming little corner in one of the following coffee shops.
Café Chiado No 28
1404 Beaubien St. East, cafechiado28.com
Steps away from the Plaza St-Hubert, this is one of the cutest coffee shops in Rosemont – La Petite-Patrie neighbourhood. Inspired by the Chiado district in Lisbon, the café offers some of the best Portuguese coffee and the most famous sweets, like the pastel de nata.
4021 St-Laurent, dispatchcoffee.ca
It’s no surprise that locals flock to this café every morning to get their caffeine fix. The knowledgeable and friendly staff serve up some of the best locally-roasted coffee in the neighbourhood.
Founder and barista, Chrissy Durcak, originally started with a coffee truck back in 2012. Now, Dispatch Coffee has outgrown its home on four wheels to three locations across town. The latest location in Le Plateau impresses visitors with its modern and monochrome settings. If you haven’t been, give it a sip or two and make sure to try the scones.
5836 St-Laurent, lebutterblume.com
Fresh flowers, great food, and coffee. If that sounds like your holy trinity, then Le Butterblume is your place. This establishment has quickly become the go-to spot for coffee and brunch in Montréal. The 40-ft. ceilings, hardwood floors, exposed brick walls and Scandinavian-vibe gives off a spacious and airy feeling – one which provides the perfect atmosphere to sip your coffee and eat your food slowly. The café is also home to a mini floral counter where you can build your own pretty bouquet.
318 Fleury Quest, lebruloir.com
Located in the main artery of the shopping hub, La Promenade Fleury, this charming little café offers a large selection of handcrafted artisan coffee that you may savour on the spot or purchase to bring home.
If all that shopping has got you wanting a little more than just coffee, their breakfast and lunch menu includes fresh and decadent croissants, soups, salads and pizza. Although this café may get a little noisy at times, it’s a great place for those who enjoy working under natural light or for those who admire works by local artists.
