25 Montreal Coffee Shops To Get A Great Almond Milk Latte

Photo cred - Traciw

Soy milk is for basic betches (not a typo). There, I said it. As much as I love a big bowl of vanilla soy milk with my cereal, when it comes to coffee, the mighty almond beats the plain old soy bean every time. Lighter, frothier when steamed, and lacking any weird aftertaste, almond milk is the perfect latte-liquid, better even, perhaps, to cow's milk.

Not always the standard dairy-free option at restaurants and cafes, almond milk can't be found everywhere in Montreal, as most coffee shops use soy milk. Somehow, the lack of availibility of almond milk makes it that much more special, as your spirits are instantly raised when you see "almond milk available" on the menu of the cafe you just popped into.

To make your almond milk latte drinking a little less sporadic, we did some digging and found 25 cafes that always have the almond-y stuff on the menu. Vegans and lactose-intolerant folk will want to pay heed, as will anyone who just enjoys a good almond milk latte. If you've never had the chance to try one, then hit one of these cafes up, you shan't regret it.

As always, if we forgot a coffee shop, let us know in the comments and we'll gladly add 'em in.
