Since 2011 a tiny coffee shop in Montreal called La Distributrice has earned the title of smallest coffee shop in North America. How small you ask? Let's just say that your bathroom is probably bigger.

Actually, the space where Harry Potter sleeps is probably bigger. And just like Harry Potter, it's tucked away in crawlspace under the stairs.

I'm not kidding, the entire shop is located underneath a stair case at 408 Mount-Royal. But this coffee shop is anything but a hole in the wall.

Forget 'drive through', this shop is literally a 'walk through' where pedestrians can stop and grab some of their favorite drinks on the go. Not that you have much of a choice, you can try NOT taking your coffee to-go, but you may have a little trouble finding a seat. Or should I say 'the' seat.

Montreal's tiniest coffee shop! #mtlcafelove #mtlcafecrawl
