Stop into the Rue Rachel haven for a kick of third-wave fuel before a hike up the nearby Mont-Royal. The lattes here are silky and caramel-sweet (naturally, without the addition of icky syrups or sugar). They also make decadent treats, including cheddar and bacon scones that are to die for, and peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies that always seem to have just come out of the oven. It’s so popular you might end up sharing a spot at a communal table with a couple of strangers on their laptops, but that’s part of the experience.
