“I love going to this place to study, it is very calm, clean and cozy. The architecture of the building is just beautiful, I’m always amazed. While the food may be little expensive at times, they have a very interesting menu so its definitely worth it. The coffee is great and the booths on the side are great for team work!” – Alaika Vasilakos
Cafe Myriade has collaborated with a limited number of coffee shops in Montreal since 2008. Alternative milks are also available, including soy, almond, and, of course, oat. These alternative milks were designed specifically for baristas, helping them to achieve the perfect micro-foam, thickness, and sweetness. Since February 2020, the majority of their baked goods have been made in-house at their new Mont-Royal location, although they still rely on Hof Kelsten for their freshly baked croissants. They base their cuisine on the seasons of these producing countries, rotating a range of sources on a regular basis.

“Great coffee shop that brew some great handmade drinks, prepared with great attention to detail. Love to stop here to buy some bags of coffee from various roasters and have a drink everytime we are visiting Montreal. Tiny little place so dont expect a swanky Starbucks where you can spend the afternoon but a great place to grab a drink and a quick bite.” – Stephane P
Cafe de Mercanti
Cafe de Mercanti inaugurated its Monkland branch, which is now an NDG landmark in August 2012. Three years later, Gianni met Frank Miozzi, another barista. They collaborated to open the Old Port site in 2015. Gianni previously worked as a barista for 10 years at the original Caffe de Mercanti in Sermoneta, in the Lazio region of Italy. He expanded the Monkland site in 2017. They make their own concoction. Each variety of coffee bean needs a different roasting temperature and time. They make their own house blend with a mixture of coffee beans hand-picked by Gianni. Selecting a blend of beans to make the right blend and bring out a distinct flavor is an art.

“What a great way to start the day with highest rated cafe for a cup of cappuccino and pastries and a croissant. Meeting and chatting with the warm and wonderful owner (Renaldo). His parents immigrated from an hour south of Rome, we laughed about having so much in common other than same 1st name. Our morning stop until we leave Montreal.” – Ron Mosocco
Café Névé opened their first Café Névé location, on Rachel Street in Plateau Montreal’s tiny Portuguese community in 2009. This first coffee is the fruition of a shared ambition between Luke Spicer, a young professional barista, and François Larose, a Montreal entrepreneur. The duo created Névé on a shoestring budget and after months of restless nights. The area was created by Luke and Francois with the goal of providing a welcoming environment that encourages individuals to engage with one another as well as with their computers. The outstanding service bar was built using salvaged wood from the building’s façade, which was once a bicycle shop.

“Cafe Neve is a cute coffee shop that’s always packed with college students on their laptops and families in the weekend for brunch. The coffee is great and the cookies are to die for!” – Adrian Petterson
Pikolo Espresso Bar
Pikolo Espresso Bar is owned and operated by Marie-Eve Laroche. She recognized an opportunity to enrich the Montreal environment when she discovered the coffee culture of Australia. Pikolo’s beverages are designed with the purpose of showcasing the unique flavor of particular coffees and served with casual familiarity, working with Canadian roasters Monogram, 49th Parallel, and Rabbit Hole.

“Pikolo was really wonderful, while it’s small, it’s also cozy and warm (perfect for winter time!). They have a good selection of drinks and pastries (scones!!). I liked sitting by the window as I could easily watch people as they walked by, and the natural sunlight comes in so perfectly. I got a moka a recommendation from the barista and I must say I really loved it!” – Dina Santina
