Pause café

06/14/2010

I’ve been running around like a madwoman since last week which is why I come to you all first with an apology for not answering and not posting in a few. A million newly materialized side projects and a bit of an exciting life development have kept me quite busy. I really wish I could elaborate more, but I can’t just yet… ack. Soon, promise!!

The following are a few snaps from one of my favorite cafes in Montreal. Warning: you’ve got to prepare yourself mentally beforehand if you plan to make the trip. It’s smack in the heart of the Mile End, where all the Yuppies and Trendsters play. (..No hating here, but all that plaid and expensive-new-clothes-made-to-look-really-really-old really makes my eyes narrow..)

But the point is not so much the people, but the place.. Every time I walk in there I am so utterly charmed. I only ran in to quickly pick up some coffee this time but would have happily sat for the requisite few hours usually aloted to a Croissanterie visit. (Like I said, major madwoman times this week…)

The lights, the little booths, the corner window view…It’s definitely a classy little joint. I didn’t get a picture of it but there’s also the worlds tiniest front terrace complete withminiature round tables and spindly little chairs.. that always make me think of Paris. Of course then there’s the question of coffee (they have the real mochachinos there with bitter chocolate) and croissants (it’s not called the Croissanterie for nothing folks)..

    Mmmm… looks delicious!

    Have you ever been to St. Viateur’s Bagel Shop near McGill? It’s been open 24/7 since before my dad was a student at McGill in the 1970’s! Their bagels are absolutely to die for.

    OMG you took SUCH great snaps of one of my fave cafes as well!! How amazing is this place?! I just can’ rave enough and I honestly LOVE laurier st. and the terrasse is just the best– I also love to go in the fall when it’s not too cold yet and sit in a cozy sweater and have lunch, tea or a latte. I need to go this weekend lol! gonna try and drag my best friend who’s never been!
