Cafe Shaika – Artsy and cool hangout

We all have restaurants or cafes in our city that each time we pass by, ¬†we say to ourselves ‘I’m going to check that place out sometime.’ Then years go by and we never get around to it For me, that place was Cafe Shaika, a cafe on Sherbrooke street west, in the NDG neighbourhood of Montreal.

Located on a street corner, Shaika cafe is in an older building with high ceilings which makes it feel spacious and has an eclectic decor, which gives it character. I like that it’s a little bit different than the average coffee shop and nothing seems to go together, from the blue checkered floor to the mismatched chairs and tables. It’s artsy, and there’s a welcoming vibe to the space. Shaika is a hangout for locals, and at the back of the room, there’s a stage for open mic nights. They have organic and fair trade coffee and lots of vegan options on their menu, but I had a piece of carrot cake, which was moist and delicious. It may have been my first visit, but definitely won’t be my last.
