Have you ever thought “I could really go for a Myriade coffee and some of that unique new Dalla Rose ice cream but they’re so far apart that I only have time for one”? Well, provided you feel that way on a Sunday, you’re in luck.
Montreal coffee kingpin Anthony Benda from Myriade tells Eater that he’ll be staking out Dalla Rose in Saint-Henri on Sundays for the foreseeable future, offering a new seasonal drink each week alongside all the Myriade standards. The light-hearted pop up kicked off last week with affogatos — and given their popularity and Dalla Rose’s role as an ice creamery, those should be sticking around in future. You can expect a house-made pumpkin spice latte this Sunday that should change your elitist attitudes about the ubiquitous October spice mix, and in future Benda is looking to do hot apple cider, eggnog and peppermint concoctions.
The roasts on hand as well as baristas will also be rotating: this week’s brews will be squeezed through a mix of 49th Parallel, Ritual and Intelligentsia beans; the hot roasts that are in Benda’s sights for future weeks include Britain’s Square Mile, Chicago’s Half Wit, Monogram from Calgary and Anchored, out of Nova Scotia. Luke Spicer of Café Névé will join Benda to pull shots, marking a reunion of the two’s pre-Myriade days at Caffe Art Java. It should be fun, they say.
Dalla Myriade or Myriose or whatever you’d like to call the pop-up will be open from 9 a.m. Sundays until somewhere around the 4 or 5 p.m. mark.
