Wallace Espresso Westmount

Wallace Espresso has this sleek location in addition to its other spots on Dupont, King and the nominal Wallace.

They’re known for a minimalist and casual yet expert approach to coffee and stocking pastries from local bakeries.

Up a set of stairs with a washroom and a cozy kids corner with toys and books, this 10-seat space equipped with WiFi and outlets retains the gem-like, tucked-away, community-oriented feel of the other locations. You can also order for pick-up through Ritual here.
