5 perfect study cafés in and around Shaughnessy Village
Midterms are coming up already! Looking for your dream study café? Here are the best spots in and around Shaughnessy Village.
Café Myriade, Rue Mackay
You’re sure to be charmed by Café Myriade’s impeccable decor. This local chain has three locations serving speciality coffees as well as viennoiseries and pastries from Montréal bakeries. The ambiance is just right for concentration and inspiration.
Café Pacefika, Rue Lambert-Closse
Pacefika is known for its artisanal coffee. They use beans imported from an Italian roaster and personal friends in Hawaii who were among the first to start growing high-quality coffee on the islands. Hunker down for a whole study day with delicious drinks and treats!
Melk Bar à Café, Rue Stanley
It’s worth a trip to Melk for their excellent coffee and many milk options. Some say it’s the best coffee in Montréal, and that the decaf is the finest out there. The low-key atmosphere will make you feel right at home. This vibrant spot is perfect for group work.
Café Shaughnessy, Rue Lambert-Closse
Independent coffee joint Café Shaughnessy is located just a few steps away from the ESTWEST project in Shaughnessy Village. They offer a menu of speciality coffees and treats baked in-house. The cozy ambiance makes this a prime spot to get into the study zone, either by yourself or with friends.
Café Aunja, Rue Sherbrooke Ouest
Founded in 2013, Café Aunja has made a name for itself as both a coffee shop and Iranian tea house. The coffee is excellent, but you should also try their saffron, cinnamon and rosewater rice cake—an Iranian speciality to die for. We also love the laid-back vibe.
