Coffee Break: Café Pacéfika

We’ve all had this happen to us: we headed over to a very popular and Insta-worthy coffee shop last weekend to meet with some out-of-town friends, only to be disappointed in the fact that the place was jam packed and we were being looked at rather angrily for having a low-toned discussion. So we headed…

Coffee Break: Kaito Coffee @ West Elm

We met Holly and Paul, the dynamic duo behind Kaito Coffee Roasters, earlier this year when we first discovered their coffee at Bref Mtl. Since then, we’ve had the chance to not only visit their roasting facilities in Hudson, Qc., but also collaborate with them for our first ever giveaway. They are absolutely the best:…

Coffee Break: Café Lali

Since the arrival of our little fluff ball Kimchi, we have had very few calm moments to ourselves. Last week, we decided to go out and explore in Pointe-Saint-Charles and St-Henri on a fairly rainy day while leaving the fluff ball at home for some R&R. We rarely every go down that way, and it…

Coffee Break: Espresso Bison

Walking out of the house this morning, I was hoping for a break in the heat, unfortunately, the heat is here to stay… by the time this article publishes, hopefully it cool down enough for me to be able to fall asleep without having five ice packs in bed with me… Yeah, Marie didn’t appreciate…

Coffee Break : Le Club – Espresso Bar

Dans les dernières années, on a pu voir une augmentation considérable de gens à vélo en ville; je parle de mon expérience personnelle bien sûr, mais ici à Montréal, il y a une grande communauté de cyclistes urbains qui utilisent leurs vélo comme moyen de transport. Malgré tous les problèmes que la ville peut avoir…

Coffee Break: Café Reine Garçon

Ça t’arrive des fois de vouloir te maquiller et te mettre belle juste parce que? Je trouve que ces jours-là sont toujours les meilleurs; j’ai l’impression qu’il y a toujours quelque chose d’inattendu et super qui se passe, qui ne fait que renforcer l’idée que c’est une journée chanceuse. Eh bien, j’ai eu cette expérience…

Coffee Break: Aloha Espresso Bar

I’ve been waiting for ages to write this review! Mostly because I haven’t had time to get to this coffee shop, but also because EVERYBODY was writing about it when it first opened earlier this year. Seeing as I am not as trendy as everyone, I thought I’d wait a bit. Located in a prime…

Coffee Break: Lapin Pressé

Il y a quelques semaines, nous nous sommes données comme mission d’essayer au moins trois cafés, faisant tous partie du Indie Coffee Passport, situés dans le Plateau en une journée. Je n’ai jamais parlé ni marché aussi vite de ma vie que cette journée là… Qu’est-ce que tu veux que je te dise… la cafféine,…

Coffee Break: Esquina, Bar à Café

Last weekend we had a coffee hunting extravaganza. We tried not one, not two, but three coffee shops in the span of an hour and a half. And let me tell you, I’ve never walked that fast in my life! Caffeine sure does put a pep in your step! Our first stop of the day…

Coffee Break: Cardynal – Bar à Espresso

Situé sur la magnifique avenue du Mont-Royal, le Cardynal – Bar à Espresso est un cozy petit café qui a beaucoup à offrir. La sélection sur le menu affiché au mur présente tous les classiques recherchés des plus fins connaisseurs, et quelques items qui nous ont fait poser quelques questions : une planche-dégustation dans un café,…

Coffee Break: Shaughnessy Café

If you’ve ever gotten off at Atwater station and walked down Ste Catherine towards downtown, you’ll have noticed that the streets are busy, and so are the shops. Being pretty much in the middle of all the university and college campuses, it can be pretty difficult finding a quiet spot to sit and get some…

Coffee Break in Gatineau: Café Mulligan

We’re taking you on a little roadtrip this week, taking you to Aylmer, Gatineau, for a quick little coffee break! For those that aren’t familiar with the area, it is the major anglophone neighborhood of the Gatineau region, located along the Ottawa/Ouatouais river. It’s quite picturesque, especially in the older part near the marina. Over…
