A Chocolate Extravaganza in Montreal - Juliette & Chocolat

Montreal CafeMontreal Cafe

Imagine walking into an adorable restaurant/cafe in Montreal, and being surrounded by an assortment of delectable chocolates, decadent desserts, mouthwatering crepes and sublime hot chocolate, made with real melted chocolate, like your grandmother may have made.  This is exactly what happened on a recent trip to Montreal.  All our senses screamed and cheered as we walked into Juliette & Chocolat.  Not only did this cafe promise a feast of edible delights, but it also offered a feast for the eyes. 

Juliette & Chocolat is an interior designer's dream.  Located in a historical building on the corner of Prince-Arthur and Saint-Laurent, this restaurant boasts massively high ceilings, quaint light and airy walls and moldings, and brick walls, cleverly highlighted with wall sconces for accent lighting.  The banquettes look like dark bars of chocolate, and one bench even has a corner with a "bite" taken out of it! 

There are clever displays of brown and natural coloured vases and gourds with long curly sticks, which add interest and visual texture to the space, and create subtle barriers to divide the room. As a home stager, I couldn't help but be inspired by the clever organic arrangements and groupings. 


Needless to say, the food w
as incredibly delicious, and although the service was rather slow, we were in no hurry to vacate, and on the contrary, were delighted to linger, taking in all the wonderful tastes, smells, sounds and sights. 


On your next visit to Montreal, don't miss a visit to Juliette & Chocolat!  Bon appetit!

A case full to the brim with delicate pastries and desserts.  Note the large crown moldings, brick wall, wooden tables and cream coloured millwork.

Organic vases and sticks create a division between the large space, but also add visual interest with the visual textures.

Pamela - I agree - I used to be a flight attendant, and would constantly fly turn arounds from Halifax to Boston.  We'd land, and you'd see the beautiful, old buildings and water from a distance.  However, I was never able to get off and stay there, so Boston is definitely on my list of places to see.

Hi Sally - It's the one area in the US I haven't been to yet.  Who knows?  Maybe we'll meet in person sometime.

John - You are very lucky to live in such a beautiful city.  Ok, I did take a photo of the chocolate fondue - but didn't want to over do it too much with the photos - I tried to upload it this morning for you, but "bad gateways" are preventing me...  Thank you for you kind comments about my family.  Oh, you're so lucky to have Juliette's in your back yard!

Sally - British heritage and two daughters names Dominique and Madeleine - how very Canadian.  I do think women's French names are superior.  We are just a couple of hours from Montreal so next time I will have to look this place up and get out for lunch.  Great pictures.

Valerie - I agree, French names sound so much more sophisticated than English names.  I was a French major, even though I grew up in Vancouver(!).  Lived a couple of years in Quebec City, then a year in Grenoble, so there was no doubt in my mind that the girls would receive French names - put them through French immersion, too!  I love Quebec - you're so lucky to live so close.  Yes, do visit this lovely cafe - it's the best place ever!
