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.

So next time you go to Montréal, here are 5 coffee shops not to miss.

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

Use for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

Use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Car

Use Discover Cars or to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
