Flocon Espresso

Last weekend, I took a break and met some friends at Flocon on Mont Royal East. I had never been there, but fear I may now become a regular. 

Flocon is housed in a super cute space with simple wooden benches and tables, and frames and objects painted with the most perfect vintage-y aqua blue.

I love coffee, but I have a difficult relationship with it. My stomach can be crazy sensitive, and if I cross my coffee threshold, it can mean bad news for me. I can typically handle only half of a small cup of coffee a day. No kidding; if they sold "junior" sized coffee, I'd be all over that. 

I ordered a latte with soy milk, and what I got was AMAZING. I'm not going to wax poetic about a soy latte, but folks - there are many, many people out there who can't get this simple order right. SO many times I've had burnt soy milk, which makes for an unpleasant experience. I'm kind of curious what kind of soy milk they actually use, because this latte was delish. Creamy, smooth, perfect. And it totally didn't wreck my stomach, which was awesome. 

It looks like they also sell Stumptown Coffee, which I've heard good things about. I might have to pick some up one of these days. When you only drink 1/2 a cup a day, you can afford to splash out sometimes.

If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend stopping in for a coffee!
