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 don't recall exactly, but the prices are in line with other similar coffee shops.

    2. Truly excellent place and people, very excited to have another shop like this in the city.

        Great shop! espresso is about 2$ to 2.5$. Latte up to 3.5 if I remember well.

        the guy from loved it too, seems like a place to watch in the future

      2. 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.

            Myriade brought Phil and Sebastian in a few times and up parc, Caffee In Gamba's always had a nice selection but I think their stock doesn't always move fast.

              Good to know, I haven't checked out Caffe in Gamba in a while. Do you know if anyone carries Detour? It's an excellent roaster from Ontario.
