Ridiculously posh coffee... can be a lot of fun!

After work this afternoon I met my friend Vanessa for coffee. We didn't feel like the usual starbucks so we decided to try the somewhat newish Nespresso Boutique here in Montreal.

Well I must say, at first glance this place just exudes pretentiousness.  
But the staff were all extremely friendly and treated us like VIP. 

We sat outside on the terrace (first time this year!), and took a long time deliberating over the extensive coffee bar menu and macaron selection.
I must admit that I secretly adore this kind of thing!

sometimes we all need a little indulgence.

Sounds like my kind of place:)...I sort of like all that pretentious business (shhh, don't tell).

I'm loving the ambiance, interiors and your macaroons yum yum. The whole place is wonderful, might as well try to sip my coffee there one of these days.

Heyyy, we DO share Vanessa as a friend! She's told me about you before (her friend with a blog) but she had never actually told me what your blog was, so glad she told you about mine! :)

Love to read about your little adventures! Where is this Nespresso store anyway?

Great to "meet" you! ha! xx
