Meet My Little Cup, a New Montreal Café All the Way From Brussels

Now open downtown.

Montreal's latest coffee shop has a novel backstory. My Little Cup, which opened this week at métro McGill, is a spin-off of a popular Brussels café run by French brothers Laurent and Bertrand Lucas. The original — "a unique espresso bar, the first of its kind in Belgium" — was the fulfillment of a dream for Bertrand. The globetrotter told a French newspaper in 2012 that he discovered third wave coffee shops while in the United States and wanted to import the concept to Europe.

And Montreal, despite the city's perky café scene. Admittedly, downtown is less congested with coffee bars than the likes of La Petite-Patrie and Mile End, and métro commuters are very likely to embrace quality, Marzocco-made shots. Notably, My Little Cup also sells artisanal chocolate bars, and pastries from Godley & Crème. One major Montreal coffee ambassador has already lent its support to the newcomer (see below). And no, no word yet on whether the Office québécois de la langue française will take umbrage with My Little Cup's name — which is suffixed with "Comptoir Café."

Status: My Little Cup, Métro McGill at 2055 Robert-Bourassa, (514) 618-4987. Now open Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; weekends 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
