Café Myriade

Montreal: Cafe Myriade Collabs With Club Monaco

Chefs like Chuck Hughes and the Joe Beef crew are among a chorus of local tastemakers to sing praises of Myriade. With three locations across the city—the ritziest of which is hidden sous-sol at the Club Monaco on Ste. Catherine downtown—this local chain was one of the first to kick off the city’s craft coffee scene. Helmed by champion barista Anthony Benda, blends from top Canadian roaster 49th Parallel are brewed on a Mirage Triplette and served alongside pastries from independent bakeries.

Pikolo Espresso Bar

Pikolo Espresso Bar has become known throughout Montreal as a place of coffee excellence. This high-end café only serves single-origin coffee, with each bag offering a truly unique taste. Everything else on offer is either homemade or locally produced — and the results are pretty spectacular.
