Café Myriade on St-Denis Street: A peaceful haven in the Plateau

Although it is located on this very busy artery that crosses the city, one might think that Café Myriade on St-Denis Street was created to offer locals a meeting place away from the daily grind. Perhaps it’s the lovely sunny patio or its charming space that gives this café—the third-of-five Myriade’s—a little something extra.

Facing the bicycle path on St-Denis, Café Myriade is almost always busy. Despite this, the atmosphere is calm and relaxed. Whether working, studying, or catching up with a friend, you can settle in at one of the long wooden tables, along the counter, or out on the sunny patio.

At Café Myriade St-Denis, you can enjoy very good coffee from independent roasters, including 49th Parallel. In addition to the quality of the beans used, Myriade uses high-quality organic dairy and alternative milks, to ensure the perfect taste and foam. In particular, their dairy milk, Henrietta, is free of additives and comes from cows in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region. Here, the vast majority of baked goods are homemade or come from local bakeries. The carrot cake is particularly decadent!

Café Myriade on St-Denis Street is a must stop if you are in the neighbourhood. The staff is always friendly, and the coffee is reliably excellent.
