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 Review: Cherry Bomb Coffee

This first coffee review of the month is all about a coffee that we picked up our first day of holidays in Toronto! It fueled every day of our trip, and we’re on our last beans right now. So if you’re in Toronto and feel like making your way to Roncesvalles, stop by Cherry Bomb…

The War on Labels

Two clashing point of views Some want more, some want them gone We’ve officially entered the next round The fight of our generation I’m no poet But I need words to write I need words to talk I need them to express myself We’ve categorized, sub-categorized Everything belongs to a group More words to describe…

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: 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: 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 Review: Dark Matter Coffee

Social media is a wonderful thing: it keeps you updated on what’s happening in the world, who wore what when, who your ex is now dating, and keeping in touch with friends and family. It is also an amazing business and networking tool, as well as a trend moderator. With just a tap and swipe…

Où aller? – Les Francofolies –

C’est presque l’été, malgré ce temps de fou, et cela veut donc dire que la saison des Festivals est lancée. On habite à Montréal depuis 2 ans, et malgré notre bonne volonté, je dois admettre qu’on a très peu profité des différentes festivités qu’offre cette ville active. En plus d’avoir plusieurs activités aux quatre coins…

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 Review: Zab Coffee

Cette semaine on essaie pour vous un nouveau mélange de café en provenance du torréfacteur Montréalais ZAB café. Ça fait quelques semaines maintenant qu’il fait assez chaud pour boire un café glacé le matin en se levant, donc je l’ai également testé en café froid! ZAB café est relativement nouveau mais se retrouve tranquillement pas…

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…

Out and About: Pop-Up Brock-Art x GunStreet Vintage
