Pikolo Espresso Bar - Eating & Things To Do in Montreal - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

Just off of Sherbrooke street, Pikolo is perfect for working and studying as it has free Wi-Fi. Open for two years now, this independent café is a welcome change from the coffee chains located virtually everywhere in the downtown area. Enjoy a warm ambiance, informed baristas passionate about coffee, and a musical playlist akin to your iPod.

Why you should visit it

Finely roasted coffee beans make for a fresh tasting brew while tea is also available for non-coffee drinkers. Its intimate service makes you feel like every cup is made with love, resulting in fantastic beverages. Baked goods made at the shop or from local businesses include mouth-watering croissants, scones, muffins, and cakes.

Special tip

Try to snag a seat upstairs so you can people watch and take in the charming space.

Amazing coffee, great scones. Their scones actually come from Godley and Creme, which is 2 blocks away and have a bunch of other goodies. Both places are a must!
