430 Avenue Laurier E, Montréal, QC H2J 1E5
I gotta admit. Sometimes I get a bit jealous of the neighbourhoods around the St-Laurent and St-Denis streets, cause they’re always the ones to have the really nice new cafes. And considering how it was this summer, it feels like there’s a new cafe popping up every month in that area. Noble café is one of them that opened just a few months ago. Despite it being a bit small, offering seats only outside, I can understand why it quickly gained popularity. This isn’t the kind of cafe where you isolate yourself with electronics in the hopes of getting some work or studying done. To me, it feels more like a cafe for hangouts with friends or relaxing with a book. Or even better, enjoying an ice cream during a hot summer day. Which they also offer along with their caffeinated drinks. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t get the chance to enjoy it before the summer season ended. But there’s always next year.

After walking by this bakery cafe on St-Laurent multiple times, Lena and I finally decided to try it out. On a sunday morning during busy brunch. It was a bit crowded and we didn’t get to enjoy our drinks from the seats we wanted (my photography is all about angles… and not getting in people’s faces). But that’s alright, cause I’ll definitely stop by again for a quick coffee or tea. And to get a shot of their famous green neon sign which I missed.

More cafes! There are never too many independent cafes you can visit in Montreal. There’s seems to be a new coffee shop opening every single month. I can’t complain though, I’m just glad there are options for me to visit. However, this time, Lena and I decided to go to a coffee shop that’s been on our list for quite some time. We just never got the chance to get a coffee from there yet cause we’re rarely in the area. But finally, we decided to explore the Jean-Talon area and visit Cafe Cafe Oui Mais Non, where ordering one cup of green tea gives you a whole tea set with five different parts.
