Gypsy Café + Bar | Nomads Bring Bali to Montreal
The original team of Gypsy Bali, which has pushed many Montrealers to visit Canggu in Bali, imports its concept and installs the Gypsy in the heart of Plateau Mont-Royal. Located at the corner of Rachel and Berri streets, this new neighborhood café-bar will offer a great gathering place for people from the Plateau and a chill zone for digital nomads.
The decor by Amlyne Phillips from La Chambre Design (Apt 200, HÀ Old Montreal & Nhau Bar, Jatoba) recalls the Balinese roots of the original concept and is imbued with a Californian spirit. Wood and concrete will rub shoulders with plants and natural textiles to create a dreamy place for morning coffee as well as for cocktails with friends — a relaxed atmosphere that will lead visitors to stay and unwind.
Gypsy‘s nomadic DNA has prompted chef Robin Filteau-Boucher to recreate the flavors of the world using local produce, for the sake of eco-responsibility. They offer a fresh vegetarian- and vegan-friendly menu: bowls of smoothie, fresh juices and slices of morning bread, salads and colorful bowls to consume on site or to take away at any time of the day. A daily menu, varying with the passing seasons, will be served in the evening.
Gypsy, which welcomes you from early to late, for brunch, lunch, dinner or evening, offers a healthy table, a festive cocktail menu and a warm and inviting atmosphere. The coffee counter allows you to take a bite on the go or settle down to enjoy a beverage and work quietly. On the other hand, the bar suggests a surprising bouquet of floral and vegetable flavors – kombucha cocktails, hot toddies with a twist, a fine selection of natural wines and local beers.
Co-owner Kevin Latrem put his nomadic impulses on pause to better return to his hometown. Accompanied by Chef Robin Filteau-Boucher, Gab Jetté and Andy Dubois, he unites strength and passion with the team at HÀ Old Montreal — Flore-Anne Ducharme, Nicolas Urli and Francisco Randez — to deploy and lead the establishment.
Coffee in the morning, bar in the evening and a bit of everything during the day, Gypsy is the perfect place to exchange and dream adventures!
