Here are the leftover photos I had on my camera from the last 2 months until the end of summer. Showing how I tried to take advantage of as much greenery as I could from inside and out, where I accidentally colour coordinated with the buildings, admired Montreal’s street art and lounged in the sunshine, visited shops, art expos and festivals, and tried to befriend the local park wildlife. It was a good summer, but now the chill of fall has arrived and soon so will the snow. So I’ll just look at these summer photos and try not to get depressed.

Moustache Café

If you’re surprised I’m posting photos of another coffee shop, you really shouldn’t. Cause ever since coming back from Europe, that’s all Lena and I have been up to this summer. So today it’s Moustache Café. It’s warm and inviting with it’s wall of colourful dishware and a long communal table in the middle of the for people to share. I also enjoyed that they were playing a Jackie Chan movie on the TV. But what I liked the most, which is completely unrelated to coffee, was seeing the café’s bernese mountain dog walk around and entertain the kids.

St-Henri in Jean-Talon

Café St-Henri
Jean-Talon Market, 260 Place du Marche du N, Montréal, QC H2S 1A1


Last summer I visited the Café St-Henri in it’s home neighbourhood of St-Henri. So I was intrigued when I found out that they opened another location, in the complete opposite area of Montreal, at the Jean-Talon market. This location is a bit smaller but also feels more modern than the original with it’s designated area for coffee tastings. With it’s bright interior and perfectly coordinated colour palette, it’s no wonder I like this place. It’s just unfortunate this location is so far from me. Guess I’ll have to come up with an excuse to visit Jean-Talon market more often.
