Tucked away in Little Italy since 1956, Caffè Italia is a cherished local gem. Stepping inside feels like a journey across the Atlantic to a bygone time thanks to the preservation of its operators, the Serri family. It's a place where generations have gathered, forging bonds over steaming cups of espresso and pastries. While recent renovations aimed to preserve its essence, regulars find comfort in the familiar sights and sounds, from the bustling front table to the aromatic brews that have kept patrons coming back for decades. It’s a second home for many Italo-Montrealers.
