Fuschia Épicerie-Fleur is a lovely café nestled in the heart of Plateau Mont-Royal in Montreal.
It looks like a vintage general store with its wood countertops, vintage furniture and decor. A great place to have coffee with a pastry. All products have flowers in them, so you can sip a rose infused hot chocolate while eating a lavender brownie. During the week, stop by to savour a vegetarian lunch and on the week-ends to have tea or brunch. The place is really small and cosy, but if you are lucky enough to get a seat on the couch, it’s a great place to relax with your girlfriends, if not the window stools are perfect to watch people go by on Duluth.
If you are looking for a neat gift to offer a foodie friend, they sell Cookie Jar kits, conveniently prepared in Mason jars. All you have to do is add 2 or 3 ingredients and mix it with the jar’s content and in less then 15 minutes, you get some really yummy cookies fresh from the oven. The ones I tried were: Quinoa, orange flower water and almonds, but they also have a really decadent chocolate version. They are delicious! Perfect to greet last minute guests.
We love the fact that they are eco-conscious and that they encourage their customers to bring their own Tupperware containers or mugs to avoid using styrofoam or plastic.
An overall a great place for an afternoon tea or just to time-travel in a different era.
