For Christmas this year, Levi gifted me one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever recieved: a plane ticket to Montreal to visit my bff Jess! It was the most lovely time, filled with long chats, snowing days and cozy evenings watching Gilmore Girls. Today I published a video all about my trip, and wanted to write a blog post explaining some of my favourite cafes that I showed!
Bristol Chai. This was the perfect place to work on a snowy day. Pipping hot chai. Brightly light space. Great wifi. Beautiful brick accent wall
Baltic Club. Ok this place technically isn’t a cafe, but it is seriously the best paper/stationery store so I had to include it
Pastel Rita. OH. MY. This place was from my dreams. I seriously want to come back to Montreal on a sunny day and retake Levi and I’s wedding photos inside. It is what pink dreams are made of.
Bar à beurre. Jess took me here for high tea and it was simply lovely. Super cozy atmosphere and amazing tea
Tommy Cafe. We went here for bagels, and just missed the kitchen closing by a few minutes. We settled for coffee and spent an hour blogging together
Cafe Origine. I think this spot was one of my favourites because the barista knew where I was from, and they presented their tea so nicely! Normally cafes are all about the coffee presentation, so I respected the care that went into this
Chez L’Éditeur. Library, bookstore, office space + cafe all in one. Yes please!
Cafe St-Henri. There isn’t a ton of places that roast their own coffee in Montreal, but this was one of them. We stopped here to pick up some souvenirs (in the form of coffee) for me to take home. I was obsessed with this giant world map in it.
Victor Rose. This place is outside the city, but so worth it! It is so cozy and has a real small town feel
There you have it, nine of my favourite cafes in Montreal. And yes, one stationery store…but I just couldn’t resist!
