Café Vasco de Gama

My latest coffee adventures led me to Café Vasco de Gama – a treasure of old-world food in a traditional Portuguese store (counter setting) located on Peel and Maisonneuve. Their mouth-watering display shelves are stacked with fresh, authentic products and their extensive breakfast and lunch menus with the wine and spirits list makes your decision making process very difficult.

After contemplating my order for a long time, I finally decided on the Grilled Vegetable and Goat Cheese Panini, which came with a Greek Salad on the side. My mouth is watering all over again as I’m writing this and thinking about the delicious meal!! Naturally, I had to order a coffee as well and after much deliberation settled on the Viennois Coffee – a Viennese style latté with whipped cream on top. I also tried my friend’s Sental Iced Tea, which was absolutely incomparable to any other Iced Tea I’ve ever had.

Aside from being an amazing café, Vasco de Gama’s gourmet market sells olive oils, wines and spices. They also offer a catering service. Every review I’ve read has amazing things to say and if that’s not enough for you, explore some articles here where they’ve been featured in the news. My visit to Café Vasco de Gama lead me on a voyage of exciting tastes and new discoveries. I can tell their fresh food captures flavours from every corner of the world. I can’t wait to go back and explore some more!
