If you find yourself wandering in ”The Village” of Montreal, you need to purposely stumble upon De Farine et D’Eau Fraiche. Situated on trendy Amherst Street amongst many vintage shops, this little café resembles a fine bakery with hints of feminine detail. The all white décor and mouldings clash perfectly with the dark wood seating and the letters DF+EF are branded into the old style wood tables adding a romantic element to the already rustic and charming café. Here, you will discover a selection of rich in flavour meals, such as soups, salads and sandwiches. A must try this season: chicken tagine with prunes, carrots, parsnip, lemon and almonds served with couscous.

This quaint little space is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a snobbishly good coffee. There is also a selection of organic teas that are served up in antique cups and saucers. A favourite amongst the female clientele: the lavender latte. Compliment your beverage with one of their delicate pastries, confections or playfully decorated tea biscuits from their baked goods display. The earl grey rosettes, chocolate and matcha swirls, and field berry buttons are just an example of some of their perfectly sweet bite-sized treats. Everything is prepared in house and you can catch a glimpse of some of the magic happening behind the glass-encased kitchen.
