5 reasons to love Griffintown

One of the most prominent neighbourhoods in the city in recent years, Griffintown has established itself as the ideal place to live for urban professionals looking for a combination of culture, gastronomy, trendy boutiques, greenery and access to public transport. Today, we would like to introduce you to local favourites and trendy and creative spots that make up Montreal’s iconic laid-back vibe.



1. Steaming hot coffee shops



Café Bodega Mtl - 248, rue de la Montagne

Recently installed on the ground floor of St Ann Apartments, a rental project that offers condos for rent in Griffintown, Bodega welcomes you to a vibrant environment, where 90s pop culture seems to blend in nicely with New York street spirit. It's time to discover the delicious menu featuring sandwiches, snacks and specialty coffees.

Maman Montreal - 1524, rue Notre-Dame OuesT

Much more than a café, Maman is a unique gastronomic destination for lunch. Born in the heart of SoHo in New York, the concept is poetic and romantic, and the cuisine stands out for its freshness and the quality of its products. On top of serving heavenly coffee, the sophisticated design is sooooo Instagrammable!

September Café - 2471, rue Notre-Dame Ouest

One of the mythical addresses of the entire Sud-Ouest borough, September Café brings a surfer vibe. It’s a popular place to work and enjoy one of the best coffees in Montreal. If you’re looking for a snack, September Café offers tasty fresh dishes like a chia bowl, avocado toast, breakfast sandwiches, and much more.

Café Saint-Henri - 260, place du Marché-du-Nord

Who doesn’t know this emblematic place? If the address is slightly off-centre from the heart of Griffintown, it is well worth the detour, on foot or by bike, to appreciate the divine scents of coffee.
