Pikolo Espresso Bar
I am in love with this new espresso bar. They opened for business yesterday (On Parc Av just north of Sherbrooke). They are serving up quality espresso (Phil and Sebastian). Really cute shop. I spoke to the owner and she is passionate about coffee and it really shows. They also had some croissants and other baked goods.
Very exciting to have a new quality coffee shop in an area which was definitely lacking.
I don't think they have a website, but they do have a Facebook page:
I went on opening day but got there after closing. Went back yesterday, had a single espresso (which is more then 7-8g, but I don't know if it's a double like many other "3rd wave" place.)
Owner mentioned that Anthony from Myriade helped them out to iron out things.
They need AC ;-) but the shop is very cute and nice. All in all, a good place in the McGill ghetto and a block north of all the festivals.
Their Macchiato are shorter then myriade's.
The space really is beautiful. How was it not used for a cafe or restaurant before? The high ceilings and tall windows make the small space relaxing and spacious. I had a filtre coffee yesterday and it was excellent. Glad to see more roasters being available in Montreal, and more good coffee in an area void of it.
