I stumbled upon this new urban-infill-chic espresso bar yesterday and of course I snapped a couple of shots.  Pikolo is on Avenue du Parc next to my favorite stationary store in Montréal, papeterie nota bene
They do not serve Stumptown Coffee, but the space immediately took me back to Portland, Oregon's unforgettable coffee spots. The space just feels right, not many cafés are able to achieve this du jour ambience! Bravo! 

(. . .industrial details,  intimate space, gorgeous large windows with aged accents, high ceiling, architecture-studio stools, a welcoming service, a sexy espresso machine, an accessible location. . .) 

But the biggest draw for me is the creative entrepreneur behind this new café-bar, the cutie in the pictures below, Marie-Ève. I don't know much about her, but I am looking forward to chatting with Marie-Ève next time I stroll in. Pikolo brews Phil & Sebastian coffee. 

Merci Beaucoup Marie-Ève for fostering the third-wave coffee lifestyle!
