My Favourite Independent Coffee Shops From Tanya Kay

Montreal is best known for their independent coffee shops. We all enjoy our coffee at anytime of the day. Coffee shops aren’t only on the rise for students who need a place to study but many bloggers and caffeine lovers, are curious about the latest and trendiest shops in town. We even have our own hashtag made especially for coffee shop lovers in order to be able to scout the best places #Mtlcafecrawl.

Here is a short list of the infinite coffee shops in Montreal:

  1. Cafe Myriade

This little gem has 2 locations in Montreal. Of course, their newer one is located inside of Club Monaco on St-Catherine which is where everyone Instagrams the most. It’s tiny but BEAUTIFUL. You will fall in love once you walk down that white marble staircase to coffee heaven. Their coffee is so smooth and my favorite are their impeccable soy lattes.

  1. Cafe Larue & fils

Also having more than one location, these shops know how to serve coffee and have fun with their latte art – not to mention they’re pretty fast at creating said art when there is a rush. You won’t be disappointed in their coffee or the calm, hipster ambience of this shop.

  1. Tommy Cafe

A museum brought to life, that’s what Tommy is! Definitely Montreal’s most Instagrammed coffee shop because it is stunning. This place has perfect lighting for pictures. They also serve a yummy espresso gelato in the summer which consists of a shot of espresso topped with a dash of ice cream on top. It’s heavenly!


  1. Le Bruloir

Want a calm atmosphere to grab coffee and a little bite? Then head down to Le Bruloir. They have the prettiest black and white wallpaper and smaller tables on the side and a large one right in the middle. It’s the perfect spot for some quiet time.

  1. Cafe Ferlucci

I saved the best for last as Ferlucci has got to be one of my favorite discoveries. They are known for their nutella latte, a latte that is serve with a teaspoon of melted Nutella. It’s everything you would want a latte to be. If you’re a Nutella lover then you MUST try this place!
