We have some great coffee here in montreal,
but off the top of your head, anyone know of any such 'competitions' in Montreal of this nature?
or any great barista,s of note (other than the crew at Open Da Night on st. Viateur)
This is called harassment, mental torture, prodding with a red hot pocker....but for the readership why not?
One of the truly best places to while away a lazy Sunday morning after a torrid night of bed discheveling is in Montreal's French side. Montreal has two main flavors: English and French. French to the east of St. Laurence Boulevard and English to the west. As many great cities, most other ethnic communities each have a smaller village within Montreal. These are sprinkled all over...
Laurier Street is the equivalent of Rodeo Drive of Beverly Hills for the French.
Greene Ave. in the west plays that role for the English. Everything in between is the melting pot. Ounce this is understood, you get a much better feeling of how the cog wheels of society work in this city. Wealthy French are located in Outremont, wealthy English in Westmount.
Almost no one knows that Montreal is made of THREE mountains: Mont real, West mount and Outre mount. The three peeks on the crest of Mac Gill University depicts this well.
For this writer, the unusual and the surprise is a modus operandi. I transplanted a typical Westmount lady on a very early Sunday morning (I don't kiss and tell.....well, sort of ) right smack in the French district of Montreal. Would you believe that she had NEVER ventured there? H
