The Riverside Café Malté Saint-Henri gang hasn’t let the pandemic slow them down as they prepare to open a brand-new project: Café Malté.

Café Malté is Riverside’s newest addition, located on the Lachine Canal, right next to our ice cream truck! The containerized pop-up boutique coffee offers cold brew nitro coffees, homemade iced tea, and all the classics found in a 3rd wave coffee shop. Café Malté is named after nearby abandoned malting silos and features a décor made from repurposed materials.

The new Café Malté is named after the neighboring factory, Canada Malting, whose primary function is malting. It serves a variety of coffees, including “nitro cold brews’ ‘ and homemade iced tea, and is ideal for a quick pick-me-up or to quench your thirst with a good iced coffee on your next visit to the canal.

Riverside and the new Café Malté

Riverside appears unexpectedly on a large industrial plot adjacent to the Lachine Canal. It has a large green patio with picnic tables and a warm ambiance. This year, Café Malté, a one-of-a-kind establishment constructed entirely of recycled grain silos, debuted. Fresh cold brew and soft-serve ice cream are available. Bring the kids—and maybe even your dog!


Nothing beats catching a few rays by the canal at Riverside terrasse on a hot summer day. If you prefer coffee (including cold brew), you can relax along the canal and order a cup of joe or soft-serve from Café Malté, a shipping container that has been converted into a takeout café. It is located at the same location as the previous one.

On May 22, the brand-new establishment, which is situated at the foot of the factory’s iconic silos, will open its doors for the first time. The coffee-food truck will serve several coffee varieties, including “nitro cold brew,” homemade iced tea, and delectable local pastries. Café Malté relies on JUNGLE, a Montreal-based coffee roaster, for its high-quality coffee.

The ice cream truck from Saint-Famous Henri’s Riverside Bar and Terrasse will reopen this summer, as well as a brand-new café food truck.This unique outdoor experience along the beautiful Lachine Canal will quickly become your go-to summer spot for soft-serve pastries and cold brew coffee.

Conclusion: The art piece “SILOVE” by Urban Downfall has completely transformed the area where food trucks are located on Riverside St-Henri. During a visit, it’s impossible not to take an Instagram photo!
