The favourite addresses of … Coeur de Pirate – Béatrice Martin, alias Coeur de Pirate, needs no introduction. For over a decade now, her songs have been playing in our headphones.

She released her first album at the age of 19 and has been as successful on the other side of the Atlantic as she is here. Her work has earned her a multitude of awards, including the Félix for Best New Artist of the Year (2009) and the Félix for Best Quebec Artist Outside Quebec (2012). With her third album Roses, released in 2015, Béatrice mixes French and English, allowing her notoriety to go beyond the Francophone world. Last year, Coeur de Pirate released her most recent album entitled ”En cas de tempête, ce jardin sera fermé which received a great response from and critics alike.

Coeur de Pirate is also a fan of good food and a friend of Tastet.ca. Since we love her music (and we know many of you do too), we asked her to reveal her little foodie haunts in Montreal, her hometown. The result is a list of five delicious and friendly addresses where the singer and pianist goes to find comfort, to have a coffee, to go on a date, to satisfy a sweet craving, or to go the morning after a night out (or a show) when you might be a little hungover. Here is the list of Coeur de Pirate’s favourite addresses.

In the meantime, you can check out Coeur de Pirate’s favourite addresses here with her remix of K. Maro’s Femme like U playing in the background!


Bar Henrietta

For a romantic evening… Coeur de Pirate goes to Bar Henrietta, one of the best wine bars in town. Located on Laurier Avenue West in Mile End, Henrietta offers a superb wine list nicely complemented by Portuguese-inspired small plates to share. The place is ideal for a one-on-one because of its refined and intimate decor, and lively atmosphere. To avoid the crowds, Coeur de Pirate prefers to go there on weekdays and relatively early.

Caffè Italia

For a coffee… Caffè Italia, opened in 1956, is a true Montreal institution; it was here that the first generation of Italian Montrealers gathered. The atmosphere is sure to transport you and the coffees are full of tradition. Caffè Italia is by no means trendy and that’s what Coeur de Pirate likes about it. She considers Caffè Italia the best cafe in town. A visit is a must!

Fairmount Bagel

For a sugar craving… “I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but when I really have a craving I go get a bagel with cream cheese and strawberry jam at Fairmount Bagel.” It is indeed impossible to go wrong with a bagel from the small counter on Fairmount Avenue West. Open for exactly a century, Fairmount Bagel is one of those institutions that define the Montreal food scene.
