Le Petit Dep, Old Montreal’s Boutique Dépanneur & Café
This boutique, which is also a small café, is sure to win you over!
The Petit Dep (little depanneur) is one of those places that you instantly fall in love with. That’s why they opened in 2015. “It’s a story of love at first sight!” says Magda Slezak, the owner.
“I went to the convenience store to buy some ice cream, and found out the store was for sale. The next day, I made an offer! “
It should be said that with its aqua green facade and its vintage decoration, Le Petit Dep is as much a treat for your eyes as for your taste buds.
Also serving as a small coffee counter, Le Petit Dep is nothing like the traditional convenience store. In addition to coffee, there are quality food products, sweets, ready-to-eat dishes, pastries and even souvenir items!
“I wanted to create a convenience store that offered high-end products with a beautiful atmosphere. It was also important for me to offer the best quality coffee possible!” continues Magda Slezak.
Great attention is paid to product selection. As much as possible, local craftsmen and producers are privileged, both for pastries and for the selection of beers and beverages, sweets and ready-to-eat dishes. The inventory also includes seasonal products including the “cool donut”, consisting of soft ice cream in a fresh donut.
On the coffee side is Matthew Shefler; ranked in the top 5 of the 2016 Natrel Art Latté Challenge and chosen as the public favorite, this barista uses coffee beans from the 9th Parallel roasters of Vancouver. The coffee is simply excellent!
Le Petit Dep is also the place to find tasty gifts or souvenirs from Montreal and Quebec. Ideal for your next gift exchange!
With its friendly atmosphere, great service and gourmet food displays, we challenge you not to succumb to the charm of the Petit Dep!
