School is starting up again in a few short weeks, and many students will be picking up their books and pencils and heading back to Concordia.
There's something so exciting about the start of a new school year, even if you're no longer a student. The air starts to change, scarves come out of the closet, and we get to enjoy Montreal in a much less steamy season.
Sure, we'll all miss summer. But Autumn in Montreal (or anywhere in Quebec, really) is totally stunning.
Of course, hitting the books isn't necessarily fun. So, as you get ready for another year of studying for midterms, researching final papers, and running from one class to the next, you're going to need some fuel.
Luckily, there are a lot of great cafés near Concordia. You can check out one of these cafés great for grabbing a quick cup of coffee between classes or sitting down to study.
Where: 1432 rue Mackay
This café, which also has a location in the plateau, serves some wonderful coffee in a warm and intimate atmosphere. It's a great place for catching up with friends over coffee and one of the delicious pastries that they order from the city's best boulangeries.
Hvmans is an extremely trendy third-wave coffee shop in the Concordia area. Of course, they not only sell coffee, they also sell some delicious ice cream. The clean, minimalist space is a great place to clear your head and get some work done.
We all know and love Juliette et Chocolat, the "pick-me-up" spot of choice for those who just got their first econ midterm back and scored a 34% (wait, too specific?). Gather your friends and catch up over some super sweet desserts and delicious coffee and hot chocolate.
Montreal is brimming with coffee spots, so hopefully one of these piques your interest the next time you're near Concordia campus and need a little something.
With these coffee shops in mind, you'll never have to wonder where to get your next caffeine fix between classes!
