Only a small blue sign with "Café" written in white letters tells us that we're at the right place when we go at Café Dei Campi. But their reputation is so great that they don't even need a large logo for their loyal costumers.
I've known this little gem since last winter, but now is time for me to share the joy. I honestly don't know any café that could even compare to Café Dei Campi and their sweet cornetto, apple tartelettes and donuts. Located in Rosemont, just across the Père-Marquette Park, it's the perfect spot to get a delicious almond latte, a few vegan pastries (donuts!) and enjoy the last warm days of fall in the park. Or you could stay in and watch a Napoli football game while enjoying a Lacrem affogato. Both are ideal to spend a perfect Sunday, in my opinion.
The quality of these pastries is such that you won't even miss the butter, eggs and milk that is traditionally in these delicious Italian treats. It's basically vegan sorcery at this point, and we are loving it.
And because it is an Italian café, needless to say that the espresso is to die for also. Their coffee is fresh and strong, like any good espresso should be. You can take your latte with cow, soy or almond milk (I suggest the almond milk).
To know what's their latest updates and week-end special pastry, you should follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
I'm unapologetically a fat vegan and always looking for new vegan places to pig out. And since pastries is by far one my fav kind of food, I happen to know a little bit about the places you have to try to satisfy your vegan sweet tooth.
If you're the kind of person who thinks there's never enough icing on a cake, this place is for you. Aside from the cupcakes and cakes, you should definitely try their scones, brioches and pecan tartelettes; they are literally out of this world.

Truth be told, no place makes good non-vegan pastries like a real bakery such as Arhoma. So when masters like them create a vegan version the classic croissant, you know it'll be good. It is just the bomb and even my difficult dairy-eating squad loved it.
Located in Rosemont-la-Petite-Patrie near the Père-Marquette park, this vegan Italian café opened last winter but is already known as one of Montreal's best vegan spots. Serving cornetto, affogato and mini-pizzas, this is the place I go when I want a soy or almond latte with a vegan donut while watching a Napoli soccer game (which is nearly every weekend).
As the first all-vegan espresso bar in Montreal, Leaves Café certainly stands out. It serves homemade baked goods and the place is filled with cactus and plants which makes the cutest setting to drink almond lattes with your S/O or your best friend.
Aside from hosting incredible jazz performances, the Résonance Café also serves one of Montréal's best coffee. Their latte is just dark enough and the place is simply perfect if you want to meet up with friends, have a hot drink and listen to some jazz.
One of my favorite trends from these past few years is cat cafés; most people love cats and coffee, so that only makes the concept practical, smart and adorable. This one is particularly unique because their menu is all vegan and the cats that live there are from the SPCA, so you can adopt all one of them if you have a crush. This place is my favorite when I have to get work done because you can pet cats whenever you want and their latte are gigantic and taste delicious.
