Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Café Orr

Copy Link
5368 Rue Papineau, Montréal
QC H2H 1W2, Canada
(514) 544-2233
Visit Website

Part café (albeit one that serves microbrewed beer, too), and part cinema screening vintage and arthouse flicks, Café Orr is a hot new hybrid for the east side of the Plateau complete with coffee, pastries, and vegetarian meals — oh, and it has a huge Kate Moss fresco for you to admire, too.

2. Lurlu Bellerue

Copy Link
4840 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal
QC H2J 2L6, Canada
(438) 488-7417
Visit Website

This hybrid café and bike shop is the reincarnation of the original Lurlu Bellerue, formerly in Petite-Patrie. Given that they need space for all those bikes, it’s more of a spot for a quick hit of coffee (perhaps to-go) rather than a place to bring your laptop, but with beans from Ahuntsic roastery Le Bruloir, the coffee hits the spot.

3. Boulangerie Le Toledo

Copy Link
351 Avenue du Mont-Royal E, Montréal
QC H2T 1R1, Canada
(514) 840-0999
Visit Website

Serving coffee from Montreal upstart Structure, this bright shopfront on Mont-Royal is also a great new bakery, and with a decent amount of seating to boot. So, grab a latte and a pastry, then take some sourdough home.

4. Le Petit Dep (St-Sulpice)

Copy Link
461 Rue Saint-Sulpice, Montréal
QC H2Y 2V8, Canada
(579) 795-0542
Visit Website

Le Petit Dep is quite possibly the cutest li’l café in town, and now there’s two of them in Old Montreal alone (plus a third in Laval). The new addition is on St-Sulpice and follows the same “high-end dépanneur” approach, with coffee from 49th Parallel, baked goods from Hochelaga bakery Arhoma, as well as ready-to-eat bites, and some dep standards like beer.

5. Leaves House (McGill College)

Copy Link
1800 Avenue McGill College RDC-A, Montreal
QC H3A 3J6, Canada
(514) 843-0888
Visit Website

De la Montagne Street café Leaves (which has rebranded to Leaves House) has made its first expansion, with a bright new coffee shop at the heart of downtown. It’s bigger than the original, but still features plants, a bright interior, and great coffee, including alternative options like a London Fog and matcha lattes.

6. Café Triangle

Copy Link
5000 Rue Buchan Lobby 1, Montréal
QC H4P 1T2, Canada
(514) 686-7176
Visit Website

Rescuing the rather bleak area out near Namur and de la Savane metros from the clutches of Tim Hortons and other mediocre chains is this new arrival. With beans from Verdun’s Brûlerie Balance, a solid tea selection, and a neon ‘80s aesthetic, it’s better than anything else out near this part of the Décarie.

7. September Surf (Pointe-St-Charles)

Copy Link
Nordelec, 1700, Saint-Patrick St, Montreal
QC H3K 1A7, Canada
(514) 934-5000
Visit Website

One of the best coffee shops in town now has a second location — Little Burgundy’s September Surf has crossed the canal and opened in the Nordelec building. It will serve beans from Nova Scotia roaster Anchored Coffee and Toronto’s De Mella Pahleta, as well as sandwiches, bowls, and baked goods, but take note — it’s a tiny space, so it’s more of a take-out affair.

8. Florence Cafe

Copy Link
2425 Rue Centre, Montréal
QC H3K 1J9, Canada
(514) 269-8449
Visit Website

Pointe-St-Charles has not one, but two new café-ice creamery hybrids in business — in addition to Mollo (below), there’s Florence, a neighbourly nook that does all the standards, plus some flavour-swirled soft serves for hot summer days.

9. Mollo

Copy Link
2069 Rue Wellington, Montréal
QC H3K 1W7, Canada
(514) 543-6530
Visit Website

A family-oriented newcomer on Wellington, Mollo goes beyond coffee to offer house-made gelato, with flavours ranging from fruity sorbets like pear or mango to rich and creamy dulce de leche.
