10 Missed Connections at Montreal Restaurants

While happy couples populate Montreal restaurants, bars and cafés, so do the lonely, lovelorn and lustful. This is where Craigslist comes in. The site's Montreal 'Missed Connections' page unfurls a trove of pickups that most definitely were not. Many take place, as it happens, at restaurants all over the city. Here are ten recent ones of note.

1. Village Stalker

may14 into may 15..12:15 a.m. outside Starbucks, Village - m4m (u were walking up de la Visitation): U r about 6 feet tall and were wearing a dark (maybe black) kinda tank top and light pants.u smiled at me as u walked up visitation beside Starbucks. I was in my truck...I should have said something but I had a passenger in the back. I think I've seen u before. In any case I drove my friend home then looked for u in vain in the area north of de Maisonneuve. U r very cute. If u r here or know him.....please respond..I like the chemistry. Thanks

2. Five Sugars

Starbucks. Five sugars. - m4w (Creamy Coffee Land): U put 5 sugars in ur coffee and it excited the crap out of me. We briefly discussed the awesomeness of cream...then I dashed. Best coffee all week: same time 2morrow?

3. Bicycle Enthusiast

Breakfast at a resto on Beaver Hall - m4w - 30: This morning I walked into the restaurant where you work, and you served me breakfast. I asked about your green bike. It felt good talking to you and I felt there was a connection. You are a tall dark-haired beauty with gorgeous deep and thoughtful eyes. Let's go for a bike ride.

4. Bella Donna

Post game Smiles at Pizza Belladona - m4w (St. Laurent): This was soon after Montreal Canadiens won over the Bruins. I was inside, close to the window.. you walked by. I moved my head in appreciation, you stopped, looked back and smiled. You took one step and looked back again, I also smiled and waved my hand to say hi. You smiled again and walked on. If there is any chance in the world you are reading this, I would love to get together sometime..may be for a coffee or some drinks. Take care.
