Cafe Saint-Henri Micro-Torréfacteur

A great new café near Atwater Market and lucky for me a few steps away from my home
” Saint-Henri Micro-Torréfacteur”

Opened by the people behind Caffè in Gamba, they will be roasting their own blends on the spot.

They have this stunning machine called “La Strada” that is the Rolls Royce of espresso machines.

Tried the espresso and Colombian blend and both were outstanding

Each Wednesday they have informal tastings of their blends and as of Feb will be conducting tasting classes.

Finally great coffee in the hood!

3632 Notre Dame West/Bourget

    1. I had a cappuccino there today that rivals Myriade's, the place is lovely. Excited to have this around the corner.

        This place really is quite nice. The space is beautiful and the coffees (though very different from Myriade's - I tried both a cap and a macchiato and both were nuttier, much less sweet, and I think a darker roast) are very good. I actually walked in yesterday to find at least half the Myriade staff sitting in the pews, which is a good sign..

        They could use some more food options though - in the early afternoon I found only a few butter croissants and some small cookies.

      2. I am so releaved to finally have a wonderful place to eat delicious baked goods and drink the best espresso in town!!! The savory scones are my favorite! I got addicted to them all summer long when the Sweet Lee`s Rustic Bakery took part in Public Markets in the South West area and was so pleased to see that they`re products are available in St. Henri!!

        1. Absolutely love this place. Amazing Coffee (so far tried, Colombie, Guatemala, and Perou) and when I got the Peru manual filter coffee... it was like sipping heaven. So far have been there many times, hoping to try out all their roasts. My next adventure will be their espressos...kinda just working my way around. Heard about it from In Gamba, but if the parking out there was easier, I would go there too, their espresso was yummy! It's too bad there aren't meal-like food there, but I have to say the savoury broccoli cheese muffin/scone, and their cranberry white chocolate cookie, was to die for! The barista said Sweet Lee's was doing the food and using fresh and local ingredients. Any more feedback or tried other goodies from them?
