Café Velours: Villeray’s Own Queer and Community-Based Coffee Shop

Volunteer-Ran, the Cozy, Comfortable Space Celebrates One Year

Café Velours may look like any other place offering a warm and cozy environment to study, work, or meet your friends. But this Villeray coffee shop stands out—Café Velours is run by an energetic team of volunteers who strive to serve the queer community they love, and provide a space where everyone can express themselves and feel safe.
