Cafés & Restos

Fuchsia, my favorite café in Montreal

Let me tell you about this gem, hidden (sort of) on Coloniale street. I came across it in 2013 after reading about it on Christine’s Parisian blog. A girl from Paris had to come to Montreal and blog about this café for me to find out about it. And all that time, our apartment was only ten minutes away…

This is my dream café, I assure you. It’s only maybe twice as large as our living room, but there is so much charm and coziness packed into that small space. They sell the best London fog which they serve, sprinkled with jasmine, lavender or rose petal in Mason jars. I’ve actually never tried their coffee, because the tea is just amazing. Beside delicious beverages they also entice you with yummy treats and other products made with edible flowers like teas, honey, flower sugar, cookie mixes, spices and soaps.

I love everything about this place – the calligraphy on the walls, the multitude of jars which remind me of an apothecary, the old wooden counter and the splashes of aqua, the floral patterns, the tea cups popping up everywhere, and little details that I will let you discover in the photos below.

I almost don’t want to share this with anyone – it’s as if I’ve discovered a hidden phantasy land which should remain hidden from the world. But then again, keeping it to myself would be too selfish…
