Making a post about my favorite cafe is probably the most difficult thing ever.
I live in Montreal and cafes are everywhere. I'm incredibly lucky and spoiled in that way.
About six months ago I began taking photos of all the different styles of coffee (cafe au lait, latte, espresso con panna, etc) that I encountered. Here are some of my favorites :
These photos were taken at Second Cup, a Canadian chain. It was the company that day that made the coffee memorable. Second Cup chains are everywhere, so it's usually the best place to meet up with friends between classes and other obligations. I've had many intense conversations with my favorite people over cups like these.
...is from Caffe Art Java. The creative presentation of the coffee is truly the best thing about this place. Even the food is laid out with aesthetics in mind! It's the kind of place that is so impressive that you're almost afraid to eat what they serve you for fear of messing it up.
Finally, one of my favorite places to go for the best tasting cup of coffee is Pharmacie Esperanza.
The coffee is served in cups and saucers that look like they came right out of your grandmother's kitchen and on each table there's a jar of brown sugar. I like to sweeten my cafe au lait with a big heap of it and enjoy it slowly along with a homemade ginger cookie.
So, there you have some of my favorite places for a cup of coffee in Montreal.
