Club Social P.S., Montreal

Around back from Elena restaurant, this hidden Saint-Henri oasis with a lush herb, fruit and vegetable garden does three things really well: coffee, pizza and wine. Order inside and enjoy a slice of al taglio pizza with a cup of De Mello Palheta coffee (or a glass of natural wine) on the light-flooded, concrete and natural-wood sunken terrasse.

Nº 9 Coffee Bar, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Fresh-baked cakes and viennoiseries, friendly staff and a decidedly cozy patio tucked into a humble backyard garden: There’s a lot to love about Nº 9 Coffee Bar. Located in the heart of Old Town Lunenburg, it’s an exceptional escape from the bustle of the popular UNESCO World Heritage Site.
