Café Olimpico

I’m finally back in this beautiful city of Montreal and exploring a new café was on the top of my to-do list. My childhood friend, and recent McGill graduate, Carli was visiting me for the weekend, and I thought it would be the perfect time to take an adventure to the Mile-End area.

Any time I spoke to someone about the Mile End, I kept hearing about one café in particular. My friends raved about how amazing the coffee was at Café Olimpico, so naturally this is exactly where we went. Olimpico is a cozy little coffee-sports bar, nestled right in the heart of Mile-End. This strangely decorated café was filled with regulars, business people, families and students. Each customer seemed to have a different relationship with the super-friendly staff. The menu was not extensive but included great coffee and dessert selections. I was so pleased with the cappuccino I ordered - the espresso was rich and hot, and had just the right amount of froth on top! Carli and I also decided to order Tiramisu to share and it was heavenly! The best part was that everything on the menu was very reasonably priced.

I loved the homey, European feeling in and around the café. Many people were watching the soccer game on the giant TV screens hanging from the walls but I enjoyed the fact that the game was not over-powering inside the café. There was also a beautiful outdoor terrace, which would be perfect to use on summer days. It looked really peaceful and seemed to be a good place to read a book or chat over a cup of coffee. Café Olimpico had a great atmosphere, both inside and out. The entire Mile End area is beautiful and Café Olimpico is no different. This cafe gets five stars in my books!
