Au papier japonais0
Why locals love it
A hidden gem in the Mile-End area, it's fun to visit even if you're not a hardcore japanese calligrapher or really into origami. It's a "sensory" experience in the sense that touching papers will make you want to start doing japanese calligraphy !
Why you should visit it
The music is so relaxing, it feels like a spa, but it's quite small so it can be jam-packed. They sell papers of all size, notebooks, brushes, ink, bento boxes, books, a lot of cute stuff in general. They also have workshops, but check out their website for details.
Since you're in the Mile-End area, you could grab brunch at Caribou Gourmand or ice cream at Kem CoBa
