It's no secret that Montreal's coffee scene is unparalleled. In most cities you'll find a Starbucks on every block, which is a decent option but Montreal takes their coffee culture to a whole other level by having an independent coffee shop on every block instead.
Don't take my word for it though, just go for a 15 minute walk out of your apartment and I bet you'll be able to count at least 3 independent cafes around you. Some people may see this as a little bit overkill, but with each cafe being unique and special unlike the generic coffee chains we usually get stuck with, how could you really complain?
This is one of the things that makes Montreal my favourite city to live in. If you know me, you know that I'm more than a little obsessed with coffee and I spend way more than my fair share of time at independent cafes. But can you blame me? Montreal is home to some of the cutest, hippest and coziest cafes that are perfect for escpaing for the day. And with top notch coffee and delicious treats at all of them, what else could you ask for?
