Olive + Gourmando

I absolutely love Olive + Gourmando, a cute little café / bakery in the heart of Old Port. I was first introduced to this amazing spot by a former employer and now friend. The location is so perfect right in the middle of Montreal's famous Old Port and the vibe is so warm and inviting.

This spot does not disappoint especially because the menu is so diverse. It has everything from baked goods and coffee to breakfast and paninis. The first time I came here it was for lunch and I had the Cuban Panini - pancetta, roasted pork, raw milk gruyère topped with a delicious lime, cilantro, chipotle and pickle mayonnaise. This sandwich was to die for!!! So so good, in fact I'm getting hungry all over again just thinking about it!

The coffee here is amazing as well. I ordered a latté (classic me) to sip on while catching up with my friend (mentioned earlier) and loved it so much that I ended up ordering another! My only complaint was that the mug was not big enough!! If you are planning to go here soon just note that they are closed on Sundays and Mondays and be prepared for a wait since it is always busy! That is just a testament to how good it really is.

There is something so comforting about going to Olive + Gourmando. Can't wait to go back for another coffee and a Cuban sometime soon!
