Shaika is an artist-run café which regularly hosts art exhibitions, magazine launches and concerts for young Montreal bands. The food is decidedly healthy, and the sandwiches are even named after the neighborhood streets. The Oxford includes bagels, cream cheese, smoked salmon and capers. The house favorite is The Harvard with turkey, cheddar cheese, avocado, tomato and onions; and the Melrose is made up of roasted peppers, goat-cheese and mixed greens. Furnishings here are simple, and the décor changes depending on the exhibiting artist.
