As surrounding neighborhoods such as the Mile End become increasingly gentrified, Mile-Ex is considered to be an up-and-coming district in Montreal. Attracting mainly creatives and young professionals, this former industrial area is attracting new cafés, restaurants, bars, and art-filled spaces that occupy old factories and garages. Here are some of the best cafés to visit in this unusual neighborhood.

Dispatch Coffee

Dispatch began as a mobile vendor, and it has since emerged as a key player in Montreal’s coffee scene. There are three locations across the city, including a Mile-Ex hot spot that also operates as a thoughtful roastery, offering rich brews with an emphasis on quality and sustainability. There are pastries available, and you can also enjoy a light breakfast or lunch while you’re there.

Moustache Café is still somewhat of a local secret, tucked between Mile-Ex and Little Italy. The café has a warm and inviting atmosphere, with vegan smoothies and juices, sweet and savory snacks, and sandwiches they whip up on the spot. There are also a variety of coffee options from which to choose. There’s a large communal table where customers most often spend their time working and studying.
