Hoi An coffee post, the coffee scene in Saigon (aka Ho Chi Minh city) is more vibrant and westernized compared to Hoi An. There are myriads of cafes in the city, such as that the entire building has a cafe on each floor. The entire city is exploded with cafes due to its own coffee culture, but I managed to find some of the so-called "third wave" cafes!
La Habanera allowed me to have a taste of Cuban food. Locating right in the downtown of Montreal, it has soon become a hit spot. The restaurant offers Hawaiian-inspired shareable plates, as well as an extensive cocktail menu.
Agrikol was I loved it! Agrikol is a fairly new restaurant and bar locating in the Gay Village area, which serves some Haitian food with interesting cocktails. It's also one of the few restaurants in Montreal that people start to line up outside before its opening time. If you've never had Haitian cuisine, I suggest that you do!
Le Butterblume, locating on the main, is a restaurant, a cafe, as well as a boutique. This hybrid cafe is started by a team of the Pâtisserie Rhubarbe and Olive et Gourmando alum, which is at the border of Mile End and Little Italy. Not only the owners, Julie Romano and Nadine Boudreau, have strong restaurant résumés, so does the chef, Jens Ruoff. After my first visit, it has become one of my favorite weekday and weekend brunch spots!
