Coffee Break: Pikolo Espresso Bar

I’m not sure how, but yesterday, I found myself standing in front of Pikolo Espresso Bar on Parc & Sherbrooke, and I wasn’t too sure how I had managed to find myself there. Everyday, we do the same repetitive things, and one thing that has scared me is noticing that my routine of leaving work…

Coffee Break: Café Pista

Habiter dans le fin fond de Verdun et se rendre à la Station Beaubien, c’est toute une escapade de weekend. Il faut quasiment que tu te prépares un lunch et quelques livres de lectures pour le temps de ton déplacement, surtout quand c’est par métro. Ça vaut le coup, par contre! En fait, ce weekend,…

Coffee Break: Pigeon Espresso Bar

Looking the worst cup of coffee in Montreal? Pigeon Espresso Bar want’s you to think that they indeed have the worst… but in fact, its quite delicious. I have a paralyzing fear of pigeons… the stupid things rather walk across the street and hold up traffic instead of using its two wings to flap across…

Coffee Break: Station W

Not to brag, but we do live in a pretty awesome neighborhood. When we moved to Montreal, we didn’t really know what to expect, only that we both didn’t want to live “downtown”. Yes, that’s vague, but we wanted to be able to have a “downtown” feel while not being stuck in the middle of…

Coffee Break: Cafe Imagine

Reminding me of a coat of arms, the sign above Café Imagine made me smile: “study – cowork – create – chill” is exactly the mission and vibe of this coworking café located on the corner of St-Laurent & Rachel. Having walked up and down the busy street a couple of weekends ago, I was…

Coffee Break: Le Petit Dep

Unless you live in the area or are a tourist, you probably have never stumbled upon this little gem, nestled among the old buildings in Vieux Montréal. The bright turquoise sign above the door shows that this establishment has been in place since 1822, which we found it highly unlikely, until we set food inside….

Coffee Break: Hvmans Cafe

One of the best things about living in Montreal is that every where you go, there’s always something new to do and see/try out. Having been stuck indoors for the better part of a month due to prepping for a practice exam for my PhD, I’ve missed out on new places opening up, and just…

Coffee Break: Le 5e

  I’m super tempted in NOT telling you where exactly this gem is located because I want to keep it all to myself… No joke, I’ve been there a couple of times now during different times of the day, and its SUPER PEACEFUL. But because we all need that one special place, I’ll tell you…

Coffee Break: Le Baobab Café

Tu te cherches une activité à faire ce weekend? Prend ton vélo et rends-toi à Verdun, plus précisément, au café Le Baobab pour déguster une (ou plusieurs) saveur de gelato fait maison et leurs cafés. Ce café se retrouve sur le Indie Coffee Passport, et est voisin au Café de la 3e, donc t’as pas…

Coffee Break: Leaves Café

Hidden among the tall buildings and one way streets, Leaves Cafe is just waiting for you to stumble upon it. Although the quite surprisingly slow start, Leaves Cafe has come one of the “it” spots for vegan foodies and Instagramers alike. It’s located in student heaven: practically 200m away from the Guy-Concordia metro station exit,…

Coffee Break: Café 1880

Puisque notre printemps et été ne durent que 6 semaines en tout, j’aime vivre chaque moment pleinement. Ok, ok, j’abuse un peu, mais les deux mois et demi de beau temps qu’on a à chaque année me poussent à profiter le plus possible du beau temps. Yep, dès qu’il fait -5 je commence à sortir…

Coffee Break: Café Bloom

Last week, Marie and I decided we would try something new: go out for a breakfast date. To maximize on time, we found a little coffee shop in Pointe-St-Charles that was right across the street from her office, and that coincidentally was on the Indie Coffee Passport. This little gem is the Café Bloom. One…
