TL;DR A local ice cream and dessert shop Gazo Mtl, located at 1701 St-Denis, is now serving "Japanese Souflé Pancakes." Boasting a texture so light and airy, everyone is going crazy for them. They come in five delicious flavours: vanilla, cream cheese, matcha, chocolate banana, and crême brûlée.

Characterized by a ultra-fluffy and light airy texture, you could cut into an Uncle Tetsu cake with a dull butter knife and it would pass through effortlessly.

This delicate texture is part of what makes Uncle Tetsu such a hit.

So if you're a fan of such Japanese-style desserts and pastries, you gotta check out Gazo Mtl, located on St-Denis just south of Ontario Street in the heart of the Quartier Latin.

Gazo Mtl hopped on the latest dessert trend and makes these amazing Japanese Soufflé pancakes that boast a texture so light and airy you have to eat it within 2 minutes or else it will deflate and all you'll be left with is a pancake minus the soufflé.

The treats are definitely Insta-worthy.

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
