Mlle Catherine has such pretty colours, impeccable décor, and delicious lattes that we can’t help but adore this place! Their coffee and sorbet for carryout is a great way to make summer last a little bit longer. But don’t wait too long, because this business is only open until October 31st. Can also be found on Uber Eats!

Tommy, displaying some wonderful arches, beautiful plants, a European air, and their lattes…! As we wait until we can return here to chat or work, in any one of their quaint stores, we’ll be ordering our favourite drinks and avocado toast from here via Uber Eats, Doordash, or Skip The Dishes.

Nelli Café + Vin nature tucked away in the atrium of Hotel Nelligan offers a carryout and delivery menu through Uber Eats. Their flat white and St-Viateur salmon bagel provides a comforting, gourmet moment every time, but we also like sampling their cheese and charcuterie boards in front of the small screen, with some of their natural wine imported from Mexico, Turkey, and Japan!
