It's been a beautiful few days in Montreal, and we've all been making the most of it by taking advantage of terrasse season. After all, with the rainy summer we've experienced so far, we need to take in all the sun we can get.
Montreal has no shortage of great places to soak up some rays, but one terrasse stands out for its beautiful views and original location.
I'm of course talking about the Suspended Café, a café/bar located in the Mont-Royal park. The café, which was inaugurated last year, was a hit with residents and tourists alike.
The café is officially opening this weekend, just in time for la Saint-Jean-Baptiste and the long weekend. To celebrate its opening, visitors will get all kinds of special treats.
On Saturday, June 22, the official opening date, the café will be offering free lemonade to the first 100 visitors.
On Monday June 24, they will be offering a special program to celebrate Quebec's national day. The café will host kid's activities like makeup and chalk drawing.
Bike technicians will be on scene Sunday to offer their services, and a DJ will spin some tunes to kick off happy hour.
The café only serves drinks from Thursday to Sunday, but the café's amenities are always open. The café serves coffee, refreshments, and a selection of snacks and meals.
The Suspended Café is located at the belvédère Camillien-Houde, and is accessible by car, by foot, by bus and by bike. The café will remain open until late October.
The café will offer a diverse program of activities throughout the summer.
