In what can only be described as WTF, a video posted to Café Myriade's Instagram page shows an unknown individual approach a row of flowers planted in front of the cafe's avenue du Mont-Royal location and pull out a whole bunch of them while another individual looks on.
But the real question is: why?
For its part, the café did have a good sense of humour about this.
Café Myriade told MTL Blog that this happened at 3:45 a.m. on Monday morning. They didn't file a police report.
"We did replant what we could," they said.
"If it needs some filler we will gladly do some gardening."
Montreal has a new wine bar to add to its already stacked list of drinkeries. Brouillon — third-wave café by day, bar by night — has opened in front of marketing agency TUX at Plaza Saint-Hubert with a natural wine menu, shareable dishes and food from local épicerie Chez Conserva, and a 40-seat terrasse right on the plaza, according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
Described as "warm and eclectic" with "a touch of Berlin," the bar features wood, chrome, brass and leather details, a linoleum floor "reminiscent of old schools," and a raw wood ceiling with a giant glowing Japanese lamp hanging from its centre.
In addition to a menu of over 50 wines, Brouillon serves beer, cider and kombucha on tap, as well as a selection of cocktails.
Why You Need To Go: With incredible views, this terrasse recently opened atop the Humaniti building as part of the Humaniti Hotel. It's definitely going to be on Montrealers' must-do lists for summers to come.
The Greenhound Canada Foundation, an ecological advocacy group, will be hosting this free-to-attend market at Leaves House Café McGill from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting on September 18.
This series of markets is "part of Greenhound Foundation's campaign to support mental wellness and community connectedness through plants and nature," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
The funds raised from the market will go towards supporting community projects and the development of a "healing garden" in Montreal.
The market this weekend will host creators such as Les Filles Plantées, Ivkaforest, MTL Creation Boutique, MTLA Studio, Soft Earth Forest Therapy, and desputeaux+aubin (creators of Caillou). There will be something for everyone!
Croissant shop Hazukido has opened its first Montreal location, serving up mouth-watering flakey rolls in 15 different styles and flavours.
Among them, croissants stuffed with salted egg yolk, raspberry panna cotta, and "mochi and oolong tea flavored custard."
But the crab-studded croissant is particularly tantalizing. It's topped with parmesan and a truffle cream sauce. There's also a cod egg croissant whose flavour is described as sweet and fresh "with a hint of spiciness."
A butter garlic croissant and cheese croissant round out the savoury options.
Those who prefer their treats sweet will also find classic honeycomb, hazelnut chocolate, caramel almond, caramel pudding, custard and lemon-glazed croissants.
Hazukido is open at 1629, rue Sainte-Catherine O.
