Parma Cafe at Rue de la Gauchetière O. (Montréal, Canada)

Parmacafe is a cute Italian snack bar and Pret-A-Manger named after the quaint town of Parma that serves authentic Italian food that will knock your socks off. It is the original home of Parmigiano cheese, prosciutto, cured meats and balsamic vinegar. Now, Parmacafe has a branch in the Montreal’s downtown core.

Amongst all the baked goods here, my favourite is the Nutella Horn Pastries. The Cannolis are great too.

The food? The portions are huge so come hungry. The arancini is my favourite in town and that stood out the most to me. The sandwiches are also up there.

All in all, Parmacafe is rad for snacks and coffee. It is a great place for quick office lunches and for a slow cup of coffee when it’s not busy. It isn’t one where you would go to impress someone but somewhere you would take someone you are already comfortable with. I would certainly return for the coffee. Food wise, it is the place for you if you’re super hungry or love carbs.
