Montreal's best independent coffee shops

Ain’t that the truth!

That’s the sign hanging outside Cafe Medina in Vancouver and those are words I live by. I’m a bit of a coffee snob, not the kind who will ask a barista what temperature he brews his coffee at or how often he roasts his beans because that’s just annoying. But I will complain if my coffee’s too hot or not hot enough or if the beans are overroasted or if the foam on my latte is not the perfect consistency. I will almost never drink filter coffee and a bad cup of coffee will ruin my day like nothing else can.

When I travel, exploring a city’s independent coffee shops is up there on my list just as much as eating out, going to museums and visiting monuments. I usually have a list of coffee shops to visit and I will go out of my way to do so. I have been getting quite a few emails from visitors to Montreal who share this love of coffee, which is why I decided to create this “coffee map” so you can find the best spot to indulge your caffeine addiction whatever part of Montreal you find yourself in.

Below is a quick overview of the list of coffee shops but you will find a description of every place on the map so have fun exploring! And don’t hesitate to leave me a comment with your favourite café if it’s not already on the list. You can now also subscribe to my Twitter list of Montreal independent cafés here: http://bit.ly/12BzUms
