It's no secret that Montrealers love to be outside in the summer. The proof? All of the terrasses that pop up during the summer in the city.\nSantropol is a cozy Montreal favourite that serves amazing sandwiches and great desserts. It is open year round, but their terrasse, which is one of the most beautiful in the city, only opens its doors in the summer.\nThe patio, nestled in the Plateau, is the perfect place to get some sun and chat with friends. It's now open for the summer, and you have to go.\nSantropol, located on the corner of St-Urbain and Duluth, has been in business since 1976. It was originally founded in order to save the beautiful building in which it is located.\nThe café's website states that "since that time it has become an institution in the neighbourhood and meeting place for people from all walks of life both from Montreal and around the world."\nView this post on Instagram Racines suaves - végétalien - Mélange de carottes râpées, raisins secs, coriandre, noix de grenoble rôties, véganaise et tranches de pommes !😋🍎 * Le premier sandwich végétalien du Café Santropol & 42 ans plus tard, c'est toujours délicieux! * 🥕💜🥕💜🥕💜🥕💜🥕💜🥕 * Café Santropol’s 1st vegan sandwich & still delucious 42 years later! * Sweet roots - Vegan - Mix of grated carrots, raisins, coriander, roasted walnuts and veganaise.

Tucked just beside Parc Jeanne-Mance, it's a little urban oasis with colourful and eclectic décor.\nThe trees offer a good amount of shade and the little fountain in the middle of the courtyard makes for a very soothing sound.\nView this post on Instagram Un autre coin confortable dans le jardin et des oreillers colorés plus confortables ! * ❤️💜💙🧡💚❤️💜💙🧡💚❤️ * Another comfortable corner in the garden & more comfy, colourful pillows! . . . . . . @cafesantropol #cafesantropol #santropol #cafésantropol . . . . . . .
