Cafe Ferlucci

This little cafe has opened just over two months ago and I find myself already falling in love with it. Owned by cousins Gianni and Megan, Cafe Ferlucci is an adorable coffee shop in Villeray. When asked how he would describe their concept, Gianni replied “a hybrid”: an Italian coffee shop with a contemporary twist. No, it is not the traditional Italian cafe with large groups of middle aged men playing cards and laughing loudly watching sports. Instead, the shop feels more quaint and homey; reading a book will be no problem here. However, the duo did want to keep its core appreciation for Italian coffee so they opted to serve Misceladoro, a Sicilian, family-owned artisanal roaster (mainly the Melande Grand Aroma blend). With their Simonelli espresso machine, the shots are pulled with strong, bold flavours topped with the classic fluffy foam. Sprinkle your choice of cinnamon or chocolate and you have yourself a wonderful Italian cappuccino. I have no doubt their allonges or Americanos are great though I haven’t had one yet (I love milk too much).

The contemporary twist comes from their art design backgrounds and they’ve done a great job setting the shop’s atmosphere. The space has very natural feeling, rustic decor, with shelves stocked like a drug store in the 40’s. A lot of coffee shops strive for the ambiance that Cafe Ferlucci has achieved. The posters, wood finish and general trinkets all seem to come together organically. What you end up getting at Ferlucci is delicious coffee that innately explains the reputation Italians have for their coffee.
