This Montreal Mediterranean Café Feels Like A Trip To Mykonos The Second You Enter

With so much stress going on this year, it's definitely a good time to think of your "happy place." If you're like me, then you're probably thinking of a Mediterranean island. The ocean breeze, the chilled vibes and the iconic blue and white scenery that can instantly make you feel like you're on a tropical vacation. Well, there's a Montreal café that transports you to the Mediterranean in every dish.

La Méditerranée in Old Montreal is a half-café-half- restaurant that gives off total Mykonos vibes.

The perfect place to escape when you're in need of a mini-vacation.

Just because we can't go to the Mediterranean doesn't mean we can't get a taste!

The Place Looks Like It Belongs In Greece

The restaurant, itself, is also exquisitely beautiful, paying attention to details, like chic brickwork mixed with intricate designs on traditional craftwork and pottery.

The blue and white will instantly remind you of the islands and the pops of colour will bring a smile to your face that's bound to stay until you leave.

There's also beautiful greenery, which we could never dream of saying no to.

It's incredibly cozy and inviting, but also got something mysterious about it.

Super dreamy, but totally down-to-earth.

Kind of like the real Mediterranean.

All The Dishes Are Filled With Flavour

If you're heading to a restaurant, you're probably wondering about the food.

The menu at La Méditerranée offers light, simple, yet delicious meals, like the Mediterraneans are known for.

You can get things like Mediterranean bowls, sandwiches, smoothies and more.

And the plates are as beautiful as the setting.

It's also got great coffee, so it's perfect for when you need that mid-day-pick-me-up with a side of vacation daydreaming.

The best part is, it's super affordable.

So no need to break the bank just to get a taste of the Mediterranean.

You'll Get A Feel For The Mediterranean Way Of Life

Many seek out Mediterranean restaurants in the city, not just for the food or even the design, but to capture a piece of the Mediterranean way of life here at home.

"We were born and raised in a Mediterranean environment and country and we wanted to promote the Mediterranean taste and way of life in Montreal, promoting the unique flavours but also the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet," Fares Ouardi, co-founder of La Méditerranée told MTL Blog.

"We want to offer to people in Montreal the highest quality Mediterranean food in a nutshell and to promote its diversity.

All of this contributing to the uniqueness and diversity of the Montreal we all love."

Address: 374, rue Notre-Dame O., Montreal, QC
