Westmount’s The Standard café is pure sophistication. With rotating roasters, each visit offers a new taste. Beyond its coffee prowess, it doubles as a boutique showcasing luxury leather goods, a curated display of things like wallets and card holders. Indulge in pastries from spots like Hof Kelsten croissants to Trou de beigne doughnuts, and enjoy a lavish ambiance boasting herringbone parquetry, marble counters, and plush black chairs. It’s upscale, sure, but everyone’s welcome here.
