Mood: Peace by Montreal Addicts
What does a weekend in the life of a Montreal Addicts blogger look like? As long as it includes a brunch, a few discoveries and some spectacular spots, we’re happy! We love exploring Hochelaga and Villeray, our own neighbourhoods, and know all their hidden gems! I (one of the two Anne’s) love cycling around the city when good weather rolls around. Why not hop on your bike and join me? Let’s explore my neighbourhood together, from Villeray to Rosemont!
8:30AM – Start The Day With A Coffee
Oui Mais Non café on Jarry street is quite an unusual place, especially if you find yourself a seat in the basement. The comfortable couches, intimate lighting, books and games and unique décor create a cozy atmosphere, perfect for enjoying a tea or latte alongside a delicious homemade treat. Before heading out, get a little shopping done at the Oui Manon Boutique – you’re sure to find some local treasures!

11:00AM – Get Your Zen On
Getting to a yoga class by bike is the perfect way to gently wake up your body. Get comfortable on your yoga mat, relax and take some time to get in touch with your senses, breathe and focus on yourself.

1:00PM – Time To Re-energize
Beaufort café is the perfect spot for lunch, brunch or even a quick cup of coffee. It’s got a zen atmosphere and delicious food. It’s impossible not to fall for this café’s charms; not only is the decor easy on the eyes, it really adds to the spot’s relaxing vibe.

4:00PM – Head To Ovarium Spa
We often forget make time to take care of ourselves, but now we’re taking time for a massage. Today is all about pampering ourselves, after all! Melt away stress and soothe those sore post-cycling muscles, or use this time to attend to your innermost thoughts. Choose a massage, spa treatment or time in a floatation bath. No matter your choice, look forward to complete relaxation!

7:00PM – Wind Down At Cinéma Beaubien
To cap off this relaxing day while keeping self-care in mind, head to the movies. What better way to finish off an already amazing day than by sinking into a comfy chair in a cozy environment and taking in a film? Going to the movies is the perfect way to settle into your own little bubble while getting lost in someone else’s story.
