Who here is guilty of seeing a shop that doesn't look super modern on the outside, and walking right TF past it?
Don't worry if you do this; I do it, too. We all do. The fact is that if a restaurant, shop, or spot doesn't look 514% fleek, then we might be guilty of not paying that much attention to it.

Le Panier (274 Chemin Lakeshore).
