Kitsune Espresso Bar
This hidden spot beautifully designed has some serious tropical vibes in the heart of Griffintown, with a dreamy concept and a banana leaf wallpaper you'll be dreaming about for a while. 50's style furniture accents, a stunning neon sign in the middle of the bar and a yummy menu are the just the perfect little things you need to make a coffee shop simply, great.
Recommended: a double shot espresso and any pastry, extremely delish and fresh.
Tip: They have an indoor bike rack, free wifi, and plugs for your computers around the coffee shop.
Cuban coffee all day, every day, right?
Ps. latest update: I'm so saddened to hear this great coffee shop was completely destroyed by a recent fire last week. I really really hope you guys can reopen soon and we can enjoy your lovely colors, staff and coffee.
La Finca Cafe & Bureau
One of the latest additions near downtown Montreal with a spectacular bricked wall and a delightful boho style I adored. You can meet your friends, have a splendid snack, a perfect coffee and plan a business meeting at La Finca. From toasts, sandwiches and soups to some hyper delicious sweets to pair a perfect coffee.
Recommended: A macchiato with a yogurt bowl, served with fresh fruits and a splendid granola.
Tip: You can schedule a meeting with coworkers or clients and easily rent a private room by hour. There are 3 available and prices start at $20/hour. More info, here.
This little gem in the heart of downtown Montreal is the brand new all-vegan coffee shop of the city. As soon as you step through their door, you'll enjoy the white overload of their characteristic minimal decor, a charming ceiling full of string lights (they had me at string lights), pretty shelves full of cactuses and small plants.
Recommended: A cappuccino with almond milk (they serve coconut, soy and almond).
Tip: Parking is a bit complicated so make sure you take the metro and enjoy the walk up to Leaves Cafe.
