We’ve fallen into autumn and summer is starting to feel like a distant memory. With the cold months just around the corner, we’re on the hunt for tasty winter warmers. Ditch the pumpkin spice and try our favorite local drinks for upping the heat throughout the season.
Cappuccino strolls in Montreal
Italian coffee might not be the first thing to come to mind when you think of Montreal. But from 1970 beginnings in Mile End, Cafe Olimpico has become a city institution famous for its unmistakable character, no-frills coffee, and plenty of Italian soccer chat. Head from Sonder Lambert to the Vieux-Montreal location for a classic cappuccino before 11 am — even in Canada, Italian rules apply. Grab it to go for your fresh winter stroll along the Old Port promenade.
A cozy borrel in Amsterdam
Sure, you can grab a drink in any city, but going for a borrel in Amsterdam is a cultural activity in itself. Gebrouwen door Vrouwen (Brewed by Women) is a brewery founded by two sisters from the city with a bar just a quick bike ride from Sonder Park House. We love to cozy up with a seasonal beer and watch the Oud-West world go by. For maximum winter comfort, order a serving of bitterballen, the Dutch answer to meatballs.
Mezcal margaritas in Mexico City
Swap snug for spice with a jalapeño margarita if you’re headed south for the sun this season. Siqe in Roma Norte offers adventurous takes on the new classic with a regularly updated menu that champions their own mezcal brand. In a shared experimental space, Canopia takes care of the food and wine. Less is more around here, so expect refined flavors and sharing plates. Take your pick of our spaces in the neighborhood — Sonder La Cima is 10 minutes away on foot.
