Moustache Café


Moustache Café
35 Rue Beaubien E, Montréal, QC H2S 1P8

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

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.

A room full of green


Plantzy Atelier/Boutique
5445 Avenue de Gaspé, Montréal, QC H2T #332

I know quite a few people who were moving out or switching apartments this summer, and one thing that they all had in common was a need for plants. It comes to no surprise since adding a bit of green to your room instantly livens it up and makes I find. I definitely feel like I’m going to become a doting parent to plants once I move out into a space that’s my own.

But for now, I just tag along with my friends who are in search of some greenery of their own. Which is how I ended up at the Plantzy Atelier. For such a small boutique in a more industrial neighbourhood, seeing it filled corner to corner with plants definitely makes you feel closer to nature.
