Montreal’s best iced coffee spots

If you’re like most people, you need your daily caffeine fix. But when it’s sweltering outside, a piping hot cup of coffee starts to lose its appeal. Enter the perfect solution: iced coffee! To cool off on a hot summer day, get your chilled caffeine from one of these fine Montreal cafés.

Le Glacier Bilboquet

1311, av Bernard, Outremont, QC H2V 1W1

Bilboquet is well known for their succulent, fresh and fruity sorbets and ice cream cakes. For a refreshing caffeinated treat, try their Bing Bang, which consists of a small scoop of the ice cream of your choice, in a cup of espresso. The melting ice cream adds a bit of sweetness to the espresso, as well as cools it off. It’s divine!

Monsieur Crémeux (Food Truck)

Everyone recognizes Monsieur Crémeux thanks to their ice cream truck offering sweet treats on the streets. At their Beaubien Street shop, they whip up a frothy, delightfully refreshing coffee milkshake, made with their signature vanilla ice cream, milk and their homemade coffee syrup. You now have an excuse to have ice cream for breakfast!

Café Vito

151, rue Villeray, Montréal, QC H2R 1G4

Café Vito is run by award-winning barista Vito Azzue, who makes one of the best lattes in the city. Now, you can get an equally impressive slushy iced latte on the run, or to simmer in the sun while enjoying a fresh cannoli or a cup of gelato.

Dispatch Coffee

267 rue Saint-Zotique O, Montréal, QC H2V 1A4

Known for serving up steaming hot coffee from their mobile truck, Dispatch Coffee is also ready to help you cool down with iced coffees and lattés to go, made from their own fresh roasted beans. The sight of their truck definitely comes as a nice surprise when the temperature rises during the summer commute.

Café Myriade

1432, rue MacKay, Montréal, QC H3G 2H7

Located right by Concordia University, this hip café is a popular study spot when finals are right around the corner. Their cold-brewed coffee is steeped, like tea, for 12 hours, then poured over ice. It’s a much tangier version of iced tea and just as refreshing!

La Cornetteria Inc

6528, boul Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2S 3C6

La Cornetteria is well known in Montreal for the cronetto, their rendition of the cronut. During the summer, be sure to stop by and order their iced latte, prepared with Lavazza espresso, and topped with “espesso,” a light and fluffy edible coffee mousse.

Café Humble Lion Inc

904, rue Sherbrooke O, Montréal, QC H3A 1G3

This rustic-indie café is popular among McGill students, who drop by in search of their daily caffeine fix. Located on Sherbrooke Street, just off campus, this joint serves a variety of brews over ice, as well as delicious baked goods for when you also need that sugar rush.

Caffè San Simeon

39, rue Dante, Montréal, QC H2S 1J6

At Caffè San Simeon, the friendly and experienced baristas really get to know their customers, and will prepare your cup just the way you like it. For a refreshing treat, try one of their signature drinks, the Perfect Storm, filled with cold espresso slush, then topped with warm froth.
