Start the journey with an inspirational message.


The first thing you notice when you enter the cafe is the music. The music De Mello Palheta plays isn’t the usual calming hipster music played at other cafés- they stay true to its Latin vibe and play reggaeton. Yes, reggaeton, and the music is quiet enough to hear a conversation. The café also expresses a Latin vibe through the contemporary art, which is hung on the walls for sale.

I wanted a coffee unique to the place, so I ordered the Piccollo Latte, which was reasonably priced at $3.41. The Piccollo Latte was served in a tiny cup decorated with a heart. The coffee art wasn’t the only heart-warming aspect- the flavour was smooth and the latte wasn’t topped with an overwhelming amount of froth like other cafes tend to do.


De Mello Palheta provides surprisingly quick service for a place run by two people. The high quality is most likely the result of the coffee roasted in-house. Also, the servers are always polite and greet you with a smile.

Great till the last drop.

I was disappointed to notice that De Mello Palheta lacks a variety of good quality desserts to eat, and the display didn’t mention prices. While I admire the large, graffiti covered tables, it’s a shame that the cafe doesn’t utilize the potential room these tables provide by offering more desserts. Despite these minor issues visit De Mello Palheta for a unique experience and great service- after all it’s all about the coffee!
