Such a wonderful place for the views, the green space, and the opportunity to enjoy the fall colors.
Walked through the market today and enjoyed buying some fresh produce from local farms. We really enjoyed the corn we purchased and found some great chocolate maple cream bars that made a yummy snack. People were friendly and there were several unique offerings and shops offering Canadian products (Maple products, jams, jellies, honey....)
We enjoyed our time at the Botanical Garden. We were saddened that there were no dogs allowed when so much of the gardens had such lovely walking paths to enjoy.
There is a $6 Canadian fee for each adult . It is a beautiful church and it’s location in Old Town makes it a lovely part of the Montreal experience. Due to its location, it may be difficult finding parking if you drive.
This is a very small bagel shop that sells fresh Bagels and Matzah rolled and baked in the shop. They offer toppings that are for sale but you top the bagel yourself. The shop has no seating and no outdoor tables. They also do not offer sandwiches. We drove into this shop from our camp grounds thinking it would be a unique experience. We were hoping for a bagel sandwich with an awesome bagel as the base. We opted out of buying anything once we walked in and found the small counter and lack of sandwiches.
We stopped here on our way to our campgrounds. The information shared was very informative and that this is still a family business is very special. The products were tastefully displayed and easy to purchase. Highly recommend stopping here and recognize something special in family owned and operated business that are still operating in the USA.
We stopped in on a crisp fall day and were surprised by the crowd at the Scoop shop. They only had 3 scoopers working and the line kept growing. We moved beyond the line to purchase a tour ticket and were able to get on the tour that was about to start. The tour started with a movie that had historical perspective and was entertaining. After the movie, we were able to watch the production line from above and the guide was very informative about what we were seeing at each station. The best part was the tasting of their test flavor. Yum!
We visited today and had excellent cider, good donuts and a really tasty sandwich. The sandwich bread was yummy and thick - tasty homemade bread not found much these days! The store is incredibly busy and very tight feeling when the store is busy. We were at the store at the time a bus was arriving and another was trying to leave making it a bit challenging and the lines to the bathrooms very long. The donuts were luke warm when we were served ours which surprised me as I was hoping for fresh warm donuts. We enjoyed the stop and think you will too but definitely be prepared for crowds on fall weekends!
Not sure what time breakfast is for most people. We planned this stop to have a nice breakfast as suggested in Roadtrippers but when we arrived at 10:00 the restaurant was closed. We were told they open at 11:00. A disappointment for us after leaving Campground hungry for a nice breakfast. On this rainy Friday morning.
