A pioneer in providing fair trade coffee in Montréal, Café Rico is a simple (yet excellent) place to grab a fresh cup of coffee or quick food like sandwiches, soups and pastries. This busy address has now expanded into a small and more elaborate restaurant next door.
Café Rico is located on the Plateau Mont-Royal at 969 Rachel E. street on the corner of Boyer near the Parc Lafontaine (15-20 minutes walk from either Sherbrooke or Mont-Royal metro stations). Free Wi-Fi available. Cash only. ($5-10)
