When you travel, coffee is a staple part of life on the road. I love finding local cafes to call home for a morning cappuccino, an afternoon latte, or even somewhere to camp out for a few hours while reading books and getting work done. Hailing from San Francisco, I am no stranger to the “coffee scene.” Picturesque coffee houses, artisanal lattes, and well appointed spaces is what I look for when seeking out my daily caffeine fix.
Arriving in Montréal, I had already scoped out a few of the coffee shops I knew I was going to have to try. I looked high and low, the ones I could find locals at, and ones that were no stranger to a good cup of coffee. Montréal was rich in the coffee culture. It’s coffee identity reminded me of San Francisco. The baristas were friendly, I got to pick their brains on their favorite spots to hang out in their neighborhood and I loved getting to know their coffee shops.
