Montreal sure is known for having some pretty sweet ice cream shops, but we seem to be lacking some amazing candy stores...Well, not anymore! After walking through Old Montreal last night to catch the fireworks, I came across this hidden candy store that is honestly cute AF!
Not only do they sell some SUPERB candy, but they also have the most adorable decor. I mean the outside of the shop is legit ALL turquoise so it's pretty hard to miss! Plus, the decor inside will give you some mad vintage vibes!
Named Le Petit Dep and located on 179 St-Paul Ouest, this candy store also acts as a cafe since 1822! But wait, it is also a grocery store that focuses on selling local products. Oh, and don't even get me started on their coffee and latte art! Of course they also make ice cream that you can enjoy on their mini terrasse.
Montreal's iconic Greenspot restaurant is selling hot dogs for $0.74 this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri institution says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
