*NOTE: This cafe has since closed.
Another great little spot for coffee in my neighbourhood is Spoon Cafe on Crescent. The little coffee sister of the Soupesoup group was designed with the help of local photographer, Ali Inay. Ali has an eye for coffee and great places to find your caffeine fix which led him to launch the Instagram account @mtlcafecrawl and hashtag #mtlcafecrawl. Check it out to keep abreast of all the latest and greatest 3rd and 4th-wave coffee spots that keep popping up in Montreal.Since Spoon is so close to where I live and work, I often pop in early in the morning to grab an espresso and a small bite to eat. The cafe is located below the Crescent Street Soupesoup and is bright and modern. Grab a spot close to the window to Instagram your latte amidst the little jungle of plants and succulents.Dress by Leinad Beaudet, Bag: Balenciaga, Hat: Holt Renfrew, Sunglasses: House of Harlow, Shoes: VINCE
