Montreal's Super Cute Mini-Cactus And Succulent Café

It's a cold and rainy Morning here in Montreal, so I'm sure a lot of you are relying on your morning coffee to get your day started on a good note. Well, your morning coffee is about to get a little more adorable thanks to this Montreal café. 

Café Leaves has always been decorated with mini-cactuses and succulents, but recently they have been expanding their collection and turning into a full blown cactus café.

They call themselves a "100% plant-powered espresso bar" and they're not only talking about the cactuses. All of their food and drinks are vegan-friendly.

You can purchase any of their plants in store, so you can sip on some great coffee and shop for a new little plant at the same time.

And the selection of plants at Café Leaves is nothing short of impressive. The floating shelves that line their walls are completely covered in these things! They have big ones, tiny ones, and everything in between.

Seriously, check it out.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

Announcing Montreal's First Ever Pothole Beauty Pageant

Which is the city's most beautiful pothole?

What we love about potholes here at MTL Blog is that they provide us with an endless number of stories to share. Readers are constantly sending us photos of their favourite holes in the road. Not only that but we've become friends with many potholes around the city.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
