The temperatures have dropped and cosy sweater weather is here! Why not pair the season with a hot latte or chai? Whether you're looking for a quaint study or work spot, a resident hangout, or quality coffee that doesn't come from a popular chain, our city has a great selection of independent coffee shops. Here's a roundup of my top three cafes in Montreal for fall.

Pikolo Espresso Bar

A short walk from Place des Arts, Pikolo is a local – and student – favourite. With a great playlist and a locale perfect for people-watching, this café offers finely roasted coffee beans for a fresh brew each time. Bring your laptop, order the beverage of your choice with a side of one of their yummy pastries and idle the afternoon away.

1635 Rue Clark

(514) 508-6800

Paquebot Café

Well-situated on Mount-Royal Avenue, Paquebot Café is a gem among Montrealers. With its inspiring decor made up of its neon logo on a brick wall and some cool merch on sale, grab one of its coveted seats facing the window. This cafe is a perfect spot to work during the week while being a great stop for a refreshing drink before heading to the nearby park on the weekend.

123 Avenue du Mont-Royal West

(514) 903-2618

Café Olimpico

Established in the seventies, this cafe has become a staple in Little Italy. A local retreat for Italian immigrants (I was visiting this café with my grandfather before I could walk), today, Café Olimpico is still a popular coffee destination. You'll find students working on their MacBooks and families looking to order a good espresso to drink at the bar. Pick up a bag of their coffee beans before heading out and experience some of the city's best brew the next morning from home.

124 rue St-Viateur West

(514) 495-0746
