Le Café Fest is returning to Montreal next weekend and it’s celebrating a trio of great things: coffee, things that cost a buck, and independent businesses.
On Saturday, May 11, participating coffee shops at over 50 independent spots around Montreal will be offering coffee without milk for a loonie and coffee with milk for a toonie.
- Quebec's $1.25 'croissant day' returns to Montreal on May 25
- A build-your-own crepe franchise is on its way to Montreal
- A week-long cocktail festival is happening in Montreal this spring

The event aims to highlight the craftsmanship of Montreal’s baristas who serve up some of the city’s best java.
