When you have a dietary restriction, it's sometimes hard to find the right places to eat, especially where your all your friends can eat whatever they want. Most of the time the food will taste fine for you, but everyone else thinks it is pretty gross. Well, I have some good news for those who are gluten intolerant and vegan!
The next time your friends want to go on a coffee date, I suggest bringing them to Montreal's all-new gluten free & sometimes vegan cafe that will satisfy EVERYONE'S needs. First of all, the cafe is adorable and secondly the food is superb and I can guarantee that everyone will love it, even your vegan friends!
Kleine Shoppe is a brand cafe (first opening in May 2017) in Montreal that also acts as a bakery with gluten free dessert and even some vegan options. They are located on 3027 Notre Dame West which is just minutes away from Lionel metro.
However, the best things is that the adorable Kleine Shoppe also has gluten free lunchboxes and faux lobster rolls and tacos that are to die for. They are open everyday expect for Mondays so whether it be breakfast, lunch, or dinner you can expect nothing less than a delicious meal with a fresh coffee!
“In the past 12 months, the search volume for ‘best brunch in Montreal’ has gone up by a huge 1,588%, showing that Montrealers are big fans of two meals combined,” it continues.
“11.97% of restaurants in this city serve brunch, and they have an average rating of 4.19. Of all the reviews, 53.32% are excellent, compared to the 3.31% that are terrible. We’re suddenly really in the mood for some Canadian bacon.”
“Not only would the late timings be kinder on a delicate stomach, but the meal was also supposed to be a chance to share stories of Saturday night’s ragers – or whatever the 1800s equivalent was – with friends. From this, the modern tradition of brunch was born. Thanks, Guy,” money.co.uk says.
And with demand increasing by 1,730% over the past year, Montreal’s desire for bottomless brunch has seen the greatest increase of anywhere in the world.
The sixth edition of Montreal's Atwater Christmas Village is serving up seasonal cheer in the heart of the Sud-Ouest. Without a doubt one of the most festive spots in the city, the village consists of dozens of small huts in a European holiday market-style arrangement.
Visitors can browse the creations of local artisans, grab some mulled wine, churros, crêpes or waffles and even catch some free performances.
This year, the Atwater Christmas Village will host concerts, choruses, DJs and circus acts. Santa will be back in his yurt to greet families.
As in previous years, "soirées gourmandes" will take place every Friday: "La Montréal Raclette Party" on November 26, "Noël en Alsace" on December 3, "Noël au soleil" on December 10 and "Noël à la cabane" on December 17.
Jean-Talon Market will host a market covering an area twice the size of its inaugural edition in 2020. It opens on November 27.
The Grand Marché de Noël de Montréal is also making its grand return to the Quartier des Spectacles after a yearslong absence. Open since November 20, it features an Alsatian village and, of course, a huge Christmas tree at its centre.
La Lutinerie/Vincent NedelecDowntown Montreal's Christmas market, the Grand Marché de Noël, is making its long-awaited return — and it's bringing part of Alsace with it.
This holiday season, the market in the Quartier des spectacles will include a makeshift neighbourhood inspired by the French region known for its German roots and charming medieval architecture.
The centrepiece of the market will, of course, be a giant illuminated Christmas tree.
The Grand Marché de Noël will be just one of three large Christmas events in the city this year. The Atwater and Jean-Talon markets are also set to host a collection of local vendors in holiday-themed huts.
In total, according to organizing company La Lutinerie, over 100 artisans and producers will be selling their goods.
La Lutinerie promises mulled wine and churros at each stop.
Women will lead five of Quebec's eight largest cities following the 2021 municipal elections.
The biggest headline of the night may have been Valérie Plante's triumph over old foe Denis Coderre in Montreal, but across the province, the faces of municipal politics have become more gender-balanced.
According to the latest counts and projections, France Bélisle (Gatineau), Catherine Fournier (Longueuil), Évelyne Beaudin (Sherbrooke) and Julie Dufour (Saguenay) are all also on their way to their respective (and figurative) city hall corner offices.
In Quebec City, it seemed for a while like Marie-Josée Savard would join them. Multiple outlets had even called the election for her until the vote count for her opponent surged into the evening. Bruno Marchand ultimately claimed victory.
Mayor Plante commented on the historic nature of her second mandate in her victory speech Sunday night.
"Four years ago, Montrealers elected the first woman mayor in the history of the City of Montreal," she said.
"Tonight, they told us again, 'yes, this mayor, we're going to continue to work with her, we trust her!'"
This year, for the first time, Montrealers will have two women leading the city, as Projet Montréal's Dominique Ollivier is set to take over as president of the Executive Committee.
